ANDREW DOUGLAS ROTHBARD: Abandoned Meander: CD-R

This guy used to play in The Slaves, then VSS, then Pleasure Forever. I saw The Slaves at a house party back in ‘99 in Tempe, AZ. I thought they ruled. They played spaced-out noise music that was almost danceable. I think they were even playing in the kitchen but my memory might be a little foggy. All that said, this is the noisy, space part of the band. The vocals and mix of acoustic guitar make it seem ‘60s-out. I’m sure this guy’s brain is partially composed of hash. I feel that he became inspired to write this record while studying the different Hindu gods and goddesses one night. This could be on the movie Felix the Cat, when he is getting totally baked in the bath tub and starts floating.
