The Paul And John Debut at SF, IPO, Aug 16th!
I recently joined forces with my friend John Moremen (formerly of the Neighbors)
in a new project that we have called The Paul And John.
We have co-written a bunch of songs that sound just like both of us. Of course, you are welcome to play “spot the influence” when you hear the stuff.
Over the last months we’ve been “in the studio” (as they say) producing an “album” (as they used to say) with the working title of Heavy Blue. We are about halfway to finishing it, but we’ve already got some great results over at John’s studio in the Inner Sunset and at Allen Clapp’s place in Sunnyvale. Allen, of course, is visionary leader of the Orange Peels and he has been and will continue to be involved in this recording, also. We are very excited about it. Look for it whenever we get it finished and “released” (as they often say).
Of more pressing news, we will be playing a brief sneak peek set at this year’s San Francisco edition of the International Pop Overthrow festival, which this year runs from August 12 through the 16th.
Here’s their website for general information.
We will play a four or five song set, kicking off the show at the crazy early hour of 7:30 pm on the final Saturday night, August 16th, at the Rockit Room (see below for address, or click on the link) .
Joining us for the inuaugural live lineup of The Paul and John will be our very good
friends Mike Levy on bass and Daniel Swan on drums. Both are from The Sneetches and both are way too talented to be thought of as mere “sidemen”.
We are also excited to notice that Walter Clevenger and the Dairy Kings, our pals The Bobbleheads and our newest friends, The Corner Laughers (who recently recorded with Allen Clapp) will be on the same bill with us!
