Formed in New York City, 2012.

In the summer of 2012, Tylor Durand and Joe Popp were looking for an excuse to get back in the studio and kick out the jams, just for the hell of it. The conversation went something like this:

Tylor: "Dude, we gotta jam!"

Joe: "Hell yeah!"

Enter Shaugn O'Donnell, s six-srting space-cowboy who is most certainly not from this planet and is definitely not tied to any sort of temporal plane, thank you very much. He's a shredder extraordinaire who likes his jams long, languid and very psychadelic.

So we have Joe Popp—singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist, punk rock iconoclast and general feak of creative nature so amped up on ideas that his brain is constantly exploding in all directions.Popp makes up songs at the moment and in the moment, inspiration happening as you breath. It's all too much, really.

And then there's Tylor Durand, who plays drums very loud. He's been hoping to light a gong on fire since he was twelve and would most certainly get a tattoo of John Bonham on his face if that wasn't like the most ridiculous thing to do, ever.

So a Hell's Kitchen studio was booked and the jams started to flow hard and loose, along with copious amounts of Coors, "The Banquet Beer." There was a certain chemistry right away...

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear

So what's the Venn Diagram, you say?

Classic rock, prog rock, punk rock, psychadelic rock—pretty much the whole damn decade of the 70's. The music of their youth, the music of the future!


Well, why not? It may have been something overheard at the Holland Bar, or uttered by a band member, or maybe it was something scrawled ona bathroom wall somewhere. Either way, its a state of mind.

A mandate. A way to play.


Play the music you love, play it with passion, play it with meaning and to hell with all the rest...

Tylor Durand: Drums
Shaugn O'Donnell: Guitar
