So here’s the deal folks. This coming Friday August 8 The Father Figures will be playing at the Crescent Ballroom to celebrate the release of their third CD Steps and Processes. I am fortunate enough to have already had the opportunity to listen to it, including playing two songs from it on Radio Phoenix during the August 1 airing of The Bungalow Show, “A Confession” and “Genetically Modified Song”. The new disc is awesome, a must for your record collection and the fact you will get a copy included with your cover for the show is a smokin’ deal!
There have been many Musings about this band since I started this blog, including an interview I conducted with the band in 2011. I am thinking I have only written more posts about Elbow. The reason is simple; this trio’s style of surf informed post-punk continues to floor me as the band continues to evolve. The Father Figures are anything but a generic band folks.
I think the best way for me to show my love for this band is to provide you with a one-stop Father Figures Musings list. Here are links to past Musings about the band, a cool little trip down memory lane:
