Hypenkrunk, I Octopus, Sidecar Symposium & James Drown @ The Longbranch Saloon, Knoxville, TN – 10.18.2012


This will be the first public, Knoxville performance for Hypenkrunk, I Octopus and Sidecar Symposium, with an introduction to the night from James Drown.

After a word from Mr. Drown, Sidecar Symposium will take the stage for the debut of their Vaudevillian aural workings.  Sidecar features members of Never Sorry, Boozehound Gandydance, and Kamuy, among others.

After they get us moving, we will next be treated to I, Octopus, an experimental jazz/prog import, coming to our town by way of New Orleans.  This will be their first time playing in Knoxville.

The evening will top off with the trap and bounce stylings of Hypenkrunk.  Their live electronic blend, with the verbal stylings of MC Realtree, will keep you dancing until last call.

Truly, there will be something for everyone.

 

Wander the Silence – 5.11.2011 – Arrison Kirby, Samuel Williams and Lulu Skidoo

Click to download the tracks:

“Afraid of the Ghost”
“Michael in the War”
“Dead”
“Teamworking”
“Until I Die (Rum Blues)”

Instead of tuning up the piano, Samuel tuned his banjo to match the piano.  The result is this macabre and winding session of standards.  It’s another really minimal session, as well.

Lulu Skidoo (aka Michelle Sanders) joins us again for “Until I Die.”  This is the first version we had tried on any keys at all, let alone an actual piano.

“Teamworking” is the only new song here and is most likely incomplete, but still worth sharing, I guess.  It’s about a person getting involved in someone else’s new relationship.

Some Business Here – 5.18.2011 – Never Sorry [Arrison Kirby, Katie Collins, Megan Driscoll, Rachel Jae, Dane Hill & Michelle Sanders]

Trimper Rides, Ocean City, Maryland

“President Elect”
“Trimpers (Beach)”
“Dead”
“House of Satan”
“Until I Die (Rum Blues)”
“Laundry”
“Fuck City”
“Michael in the War”
“Trimpers (Ocean)”

This was the first session we had with this many people since Le Carnival des Autres.  In other words, this was our first slide back into our beloved full on electro rockin’ sound.  Samuel didn’t make it to this one, but Michelle Sanders joined us for an amped up version of “Until I Die (Rum Blues)”.

There are a couple of jams, “President Elect” and “Fuck City.”  The latter being the looser and more amusing.  There are also a couple different versions of “Trimpers” here.  Both incorporating synth bass, but two very different styles.  Also, note the new song, “Laundry.”  I began writing that one about [some chick] but wasn’t able to finish it until it became applicable to [a different chick].  I think it has a Talking Heads feel to it.

“Until I Die (Rum Blues)” by Never Sorry with Lulu Skidoo – at Le Carnival des Autres – 1010 Gallery, Knoxville, TN – 5.6.2011

This weekend, Never Sorry played a crossdressed acoustic set at Le Carnival des Autres at 1010 Gallery in Knoxville.  In this video, we are joined by Lulu Skidoo (aka Michelle Sanders) for this performance of “Until I Die (Rum Blues).”  She wrote these lyrics.  Myself and Megan Driscoll fleshed out the music.  Then, obviously, everyone else together brought it into form.

This video was filmed by Maurita Roman. I have at least one more good recorded excerpt from the show and it will likely get posted soon.  For now though…

Simple Times – 4.17.2011 – Never Sorry [Arrison Kirby, Katie Collins, Megan Driscoll, Rachel Jae, Dane Hill, Samuel Williams & Michelle Sanders]

Click to download the tracks:

“Trimpers”
“New Beginnings”
“Blue”
“Dead”
“House of Satan”
“Michael in the War”
“Automobile” (NWA / Parliament)
“Until I Die (Rum Blues)”
“Afraid of the Ghost”
“Cute Little Echo”

Though used to our full on assault you may be, we’re meddling in acoustic music at the moment.  Primarily, this is in preparation for Le Carnival Des Autres, as we will be giving some kind of stripped down performance at the event.  We actually played an Easter  “show” we didn’t advertise.  We used the same arrangement as on this session.  The amplification of acoustic music felt unnatural.

This session was recorded without any electric amplification (aside from the built in speaker on the omnichord), and that is also how we intend to perform at Le Carnival Des Autres.

So we have Samuel Williams back with us on the banjo.  Doing an excellent job, as this is the first time he had played many of these songs.  I’m not going to break down each song as I usually do because – what can I say?  It’s acoustic music.  Period.  I would, however, like to point out “Until I Die (Rum Blues).”  The girl singing is Michelle Sanders (aka Lulu Skidoo) and these are her lyrics.  Myself and Megan Driscoll worked out the music with her.  This was the first session that it was introduced to everyone else.  We hammered it out over and over again,  but I think this is the most solid recorded version.
