Before starting on the first TSROS album in the early 2000s, I got to play with some great bands in Amherst, Mass. and Atlanta, Georgia. I have some video and/or audio clips from each of them which I'll upload here over time.
Working backward (as usual), I played drums with a psychedelic band called Eeyore from 1998-2000. Here's a clip from my first show with them, on the roof of my record store in Candler Park, Atlanta, GA.
and here we are at The Point in Little Five Points, Atlanta:
Before joining Eeyore, I played in a band called Joybang! We played from 1992 - 1996 and opened for Polvo, Blonde Redhead, Swervedriver, Smashing Pumkpins and others. We released two 7"s and a CD, and recorded six more songs for Bob Thiele, Jr. and EMI Records that are unreleased. Here's a clip from the Midtown Music Hall in Atlanta:
Before that, I played bass with a band called Mr. Crowe's Garden from 1986-1988. We opened for Alex Chilton, The Lyres, True Believers and others and recorded demos for A&M Records, which led to the band being signed to Def American Records by George Drakoulias, an A&R rep who saw us play in NYC. Here we are at the White Dot and Club Rio in Atlanta in 1987:
