Jeff JD Wood / Press

“If you've spent any measurable amount of time in Seattle clubs, chances are good you've seen Jeff Wood play bass or keyboards. He's done time in more than a dozen bands, including the backing outfits for Marc Olson, Gerald Collier, Carrie Akre, and the Velvet Underground's Doug Yule. He's currently active in three projects: Orbiter, Duff McKagan's newer band the Gents, and Sanford Arms.”

“The band was very powerful and dynamic, and listening back to these recordings proves it. The solo band could be very quiet and turn a song into a shit storm at our command. The players in the band had a lot of chops and didn't give a rat's ass about what anyone thought about what we were doing at the time. We knew it was great music and our performances were consistent and always on the verge. Tension was important to us.”

“The dozen songs are lushly crafted with idiosyncratic touches, playing as a remorse-laden song cycle with a clear-eyed observance that keeps the emotions in check. The lolling cadence and ghostly arrangements are built on Harris Thurmond's lonesome guitar, Jeff Wood's melodic bass, and Rob Dent's loopy drums. Rob Witmer's keys and accordion float through the soundscape, swelling to oceanic proportions and then ebbing back behind London's voice.”
