Never even been to Louisiana.
There’s already a secret timeline in order. New music in time and Detroit as well. Cheers.
we’re not into marijuana things. sry.
Thanks. Also I neglected to say thanks to your kind words in the last post as well. So thanks again. Hope to roll through yr area again soon. The west beckons.
That flagstaff show had to be one of the weirdest we ever did. I remember when the cops pulled the plug, James almost got arrested for cussing them out for possibly breaking his amp. And also that it was originally scheduled to be at a strip club? Didn’t put a bad taste in our mouth for playing flagstaff though. Already had a bad taste for cops and shitty venue owners. You’ll find that anywhere in this world.
I think to say we miss mountain asleep would be saying much more than just missing a band. They existed at a really lucrative and exciting time in the history of Louisville punk and honestly the surrounding regions punk scenes as well. Every single person in that band is definitely dear friends, Ben even now playing drums for xerxes, and the music they put out from beginning to end was amazing and different in an extremely accessible way.
So to answer your question, mountain asleep and the era that they existed in ran it’s course, but we all miss it for sure. I mean, me and Dillon (who was xerxes’ first guitar player) were the first two people to even sing along to a mountain asleep song at a show. Personally I’m just glad I was there from the very first demo my brother played for me after school one day to the last show at skull alley. It was a great run and I would probably not be anywhere near the kind of guy I am now were it not for mountain asleep.
