Custom Rod is a side project of singer/songwriter Andrew John. This CD represents the American Rock side of his musical personality. After a trip to Sturgis for the Bike Rally with some friends, Andrew wrote a bunch of songs about motorcycles and the people who ride them, fix them, make them and live the Biker life. Those songs became "Custom Rod". In addition to "Custom Rod" and his three solo efforts, Andrew John has recorded two albums with his band The Stranded Lads, "The Stranded Lads: Reservoir I and II (A compilation of their works from 1988 through 1996), and "The Stranded Lads: Psychic Surgery, two albums with his band MOSS, "MOSS: Life the World and the Universe", and "MOSS: Let the People Sing". Also, Andrew has written and produced these other side project albums, "June With Spoon", "Sour Grape", and "David Velrin: Alter Ego".
