Had a fun time with a bit-part in the indie feature film The Incoherents.

The Incoherents is a “dramatic-comedy feature film about relationships, aging, reality and dreams, wrapped in a love letter to the continuing lure and thrill of Rock 'n' Roll”

Written by Jeff Auger and directed by Jared Barel, the movie is now completed and making the festival circuits and recently won “Best Home Grown Feature” at the 2019 Garden State Film Festival.

Plot Outline:
Bruce Flansburgh is a bored, 40-something New York paralegal who hasn’t let go of his dream of rock stardom. While slogging through what’s become an increasingly unbearable day to day existence, it dawns on him that the successful reunions of bands like the Pixies, Soundgarden and other alternative/indie rock groups from the late 80’s-mid 90’s could perhaps inspire his former group of 20 years earlier, The Incoherents (no, you haven’t heard of them), to reform. After recruiting the sibling rhythm section of Keith and Tyler, he rekindles a tenuous bond with the band’s guitarist and co-songwriter Jimmy Anthony, still resentful after languishing for years in unsuccessful groups after The Incoherents imploded. Bruce must also appease the desires of his wife Liz, herself desperate to break out of the life of a homemaker and reignite their stagnant marriage. As Bruce struggles mightily to maintain a modicum of normality in his troubled work and home life, The Incoherents brush the dust off and battle for relevancy amongst a new wave of younger, hipper bands from Brooklyn, ultimately leading to a chance to play for a record contract, some vindication... and maybe even a little glory.

Art Schop Album Release

I will be playing the release show for the new album from Art Schop - “Death Waits II”, Friday, March 15 at Nublu in the East Village.

“Death Waits II” was mixed produced by Martin G. Walker and the late Jimi Zhivago.
It was mixed by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, The Breeders, Sebadoh, Phish, Yo La Tengo) and mastered by Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Jessica Thompson.

Producer and multi-instrumentalist Jimi Zhivago passed away after a short illness in late 2018, not long after this album was completed. A great loss to all of those in his musical circle, his passing deeply affected many. Fittingly, the release show will also be a tribute to Jimi and his legacy. 

The band features Martin G. Walker on vocals/guitar/keys, Cameron Greider on guitar (Chris Cornell, Natalie Merchant, Martha & Rufus Wainwright, Joan Baez, Sean Lennon, PM Dawn), Jack Petruzelli on guitar/keys (Patti Smith, Joan Osborne, Ian Hunter, Rufus Wainwright), Chris Heinz on drums and myself on bass.

Entry is free and special editions of the album will be on sale at the show.
Nublu is located at 62 Avenue C, New York, NY 10009
