FHS 246 – The Needy Visions

February 3rd, 2010

Dan Shea has been putting out some great albums through his label, Bodies of Water Arts and Crafts for quite a while. Now he steps out from behind the microphone (is that a phrase?) to lead The Needy Visions. They’re what you might expect The Kingsmen to sound like if they formed today. Since they were between drummers at the time of their session, they decided to use the less-than-reliable drum machine built into our Hammond organ. That resulted in some interesting versions of their songs, which is fitting for a batch of songs that include references to Brian Wilson’s missing brain, Unsolved Mysteries, and Neil Young’s famous Last Waltz faux pas.

Go check them out at PA’s Lounge on Thursday, February 4th!
