Hey everyone. Some people know me more as a music journalist, but I’m also a singer of 20+ years. Walking Bombs is a solo/collaborative project different than what I do in my hard rock band GET OUT, or prior bands like DIVEST and Black & White Universe. It has been brewing and morphing since 2007, and finally a self-released digital full-length is on the way called Know You're Wild in the next few weeks via bandcamp HERE.

 



It's a sonically diverse record that was engineered by Jay Andersen of the noise band Surmiser and features some cool guests from violinist/vocalist Grace Moore to Sean Paul Pillsworth of pop punkers The Red Owls, USX's Nate Hall (Neurot Recordings), stand up bass from David Andersen of indie rockers The Warp/The Weft and more.


The first single is a darker, violin and fuzz bass-driven mortality ballad called "Wilt," and is kind of about mountebacks (people selling the metaphor of fake medicines or ruining faith). It's about struggling with being a creative, free spirit or someone with a varied sexuality or even just dealing with relationships these days where people are so flighty and eager to tear one another down. How do we continue to stay strong, grow and connect to any semblance of a spirituality in the face of people using The Bible to condemn others or where judgment and discourse are submissive to hate, racism, doubt and insecurity? Anybody?


I've been listening to the new excellent new Vowws record with Gary Numan and Swans and stuff, but also was thinking a lot about -- this will sound weird -- but my mom has dementia and music helps with memory sometimes. I took her to a church service for Easter, and she’s a preacher's daughter and the melodies are all still there in her head.  She was humming along to everything they sang in church, even though she can't remember which way a store is or what turn to take to get somewhere she has been a million times. And we heard "Outside" by Staind on some bumfuck radio station when I was driving her back to her care facility. Believe it or not she loves Aaron Lewis' voice, even though she’s in her seventies. She doesn't know about nu metal being like not as cool as black metal, hahaha ... she just remembered the song melody somehow. So I kind of decided to write a downcast ballad myself.


But maybe there’s some hope in it.
