Review Mirror

As the new Starflyer 59 album is getting ready to ship, I thought it'd be nice to look back at some concert footage from the band's early days. 

The music in this is so awesome, but the interview is so awkwardly sad.  It's curious to hear these tunes again as an old man because I remember hearing my friend's older brother play them all the time.  I only heard noise then, but now I'm stunned at how genius early SF59 tunes - especially coming from such a young guy.  I really dig how nonchalant Jason Martin is about his sound too.  "Oh, I really like surf music and cool heavy metal riffs and just try to put those two things together, man..."

What Steve Bergeron Knows

"While you were waiting to tell me the truth, I imagined your head was that dusty fish bowl you keep on your kitchen counter, and whatever you wanted to tell me was the dead goldfish that’s been looking at me the wrong way since Monday. We should have a proper funeral for this."

Oh!  That just about nails it.  You make the arrangements, I'll bring a deli tray.
