Guys With Dicks

the accidental band that rose from the still-vibrant embers of papa ghostface and became my main creative playground for a while. after about half a dozen personnel changes we hit on a power trio lineup, it stuck, and what seemed like it was going to be a very informal excuse to make random noise with some people i knew once in a while started to grow into something a lot more serious.

if the typical trajectory of a short-lived band is, “record one album, play a bunch of live shows, and break up,” ours was more like, “record many albums, play almost no live shows, and then break up.” almost no one knew we existed while we were making music, and we never got the chance to play in an appropriate venue for people our own age who might have been into what we were doing. so it’s impossible to say what kind of audience response we might have received.

there was a pretty decent amount of video footage shot of us as a band, both in and out of the studio. i wish i had that stuff now. it was either recorded over years ago, or else the tapes have been lost or they’re collecting dust somewhere waiting to be rediscovered someday.

at least we’ve got the music. i wouldn’t trade that for anything.
