Sunday June 24 Phoenix shoegaze heroes Half String played an amazing festival in Los Angeles. My good friend Robert Lerma from The Father Figures went and I was planning on going with him. Well, that didn’t happen and I missed seeing a great band perform live for the first time in well over a decade.
A number of years ago I got the Son of Mustang Ford single from Swervedriver, one of my all-time favorite bands, from lead vocalist and guitarist for Half String Brandon Capps. The intent was for an amazing B-side to that single “Kill the Superheroes”. What I was not prepared for was the beautiful fury of another B-side to that EP, a song by the name of “Volcano Trash”.
Apologies to Brandon, Kimber from Stinkweeds, the rest of Half String and Bobby for not making the show. Brandon, here is some Swervedriver just for you.
