Deep Field South
Late in 2002, after Dave left for California, that's when the short-lived but now infamous 'Lester Sessions' were happening. It was on one of those cold, rainy, Clifton tuesday nights that the missing piece finally fell into place... That same night we wrote our first two songs, 'Dead Again' and 'Three Bags'. We were hitting it hot, right out of the box... So we locked ourselves away and descended into an intense, year-long songwriting binge, that we chased with a weekend recording session with friend and former Robert Randolph & The Family Band, etc keyboardist John Ginty. The result was our self-titled, three-song EP; stripped down and raw, but keeping in the spirit of a highly-charged live rock 'n roll band... Then, like everything else, things started to change... In April 2004, original drummer Dan Scardino exited to the left, and from the right stepped in old friend and local drum hero John Hummel. Six months and a few 'fired-up' New York City shows later, we were back at The Shark, laying down tracks for our full-length debut CD, Deep Field South. With Ginty (who also performs on three tracks) back at the helm, Deep Field South was recorded and mixed in less than a month, and captures an even purer version of this 'tight as hell' rock band. Released in January of 2005 it features ten brand new, original songs, including live favorites 'Nicotine Machine', 'Line In The Sand' and 'The Rising Storm'. Bob Makin of The Daily Record referred to us as 'retro-minded modern rock'. Alan Tecchio of Steppin' Out writes, '(they've got) soulful riffs and singing, and a tight-as-hell rhythm section...' It's like the sound that takes you back to the early, primal moments of rock and roll; the days of one guitar, one bass, one drummer and a singer with a straight stand.
