 Hey our little label we run (Xemu Records) is hosting an event for our friends in Spindrift. After the fireworks mellow out with a Blue Hawaiian and slide guitar. 

 

 

In 2002 at the end of a Brian Jonestown Massacre tour (with Dead Meadow as tour support on our first USA our) leaving Anton Newcombe in jail (as filmed in the movie Dig!) a few of the remaining members and cohorts of the Brian Jonestown family started playing full-time in a Spaghetti-Western-Psych outfit to both keep on the road and explore musical influences not ventured into in the BJM sound. Leading the band, brief BJM guitarist Kirpatrick Thomas named the band Spindrift continuing on a band and name from his days growing up on the east coast but with a new psych western formula and with the quality players from the west coast. Building from the DIY LA warehouse scene the band would go on to put out a full-length film titled "The Legend of God's Gun", a string of treasured albums and a documentary themselves of their love of Americana ghost towns. On July 6th we at Xemu will treasure them too with a one-night only event with some of the classic players from the post Jonestown era playing songs from both their movie and western albums. 

 

 

Don't miss this special night to see why this band will always be a landmark of the Los Angeles music scene. 

 

With Dirt Dress, Federale, 1776. July 6th. 7pm. $10. Don The Beachcomber, Huntington Beach, CA

"What pops out when Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd shack up and have a hippie love-child? Washington, DC, trio Dead Meadow. And after 12 years and five albums, the band is preparing to release their most ambitious album yet. This March, the psych-rock band will drop Three Kings, a full-length concert movie and accompanying soundtrack. Below, listen to an exclusive stream of album cut "To the One." The new song layers airy, echoing vocals over a loose bass groove and singer/guitarist Jason Simon's distorted axe riffs and wah-wah pedal effects, which ooze early '70s psych-rock power and experimentalism -- spacey atmospherics included!"  Tim Herrera, Spin
