So….these guys aren’t really new, but the band itself is- U.S.S.A.
About a year ago, bassist/programmer/producer Paul Barker ( ex Ministry/Revolting Cocks) and guitarist/composer Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard/Tomahawk) decided to start a new band. They got together and wrote some material, liked what they heard, and then recruited an unknown but extremely talented young vocalist/multi instrumentalist named Gary Call. They wrote some more material, liked that too, and then recruited drum wizard Johnny Rabb (clinician, author, inventor) to finish the lineup. They began rehearsing and recording in the fall of â€™06 and have now finished their first album. Paul, Duane and Johnny, you should know all about by now; Gary, you want to know (though you donâ€™t know it yet).
Pretty exciting stuff, so check them out, and if you’re local, go see them open for Chemlab tomorrow night @ Bottom of the Hill.
