Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Practice/Video/Gig

(1) Second in a series of (maybe?) a trio of hilariously inept homemade music videos of the Book of Kills song from 2016, "Filling in Holes" can be found here.

(2) Spirited practice last night. I'll probably put up some tracks from it in a day or three.

(3) We (George III, Garfield and I) will play August 19 at the Little Grill with the inimitable Buck Gooter (who have a new album out with an appreciation from Henry Rollins) and Candidate Demo. I guess we'll start between 8 and 9 PM.

On this day in 1963, Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys released "Surfer Girl", which was the first song Brian ever wrote. The song has a certain poignancy for me that I imagine most younger folks today would not understand.

Arthur Lee died on this day in 2006 following a bout with acute myeloid leukemia. I'm very very thankful he was here for part of my own lifetime.
