Flesh Eaters Live in SF 2018

FullSizeRender (35)

I had a really cool time getting to see The Flesh Eaters. This was interesting to me ’cause the last time they played in 2015 my band Andalusia Rose opened for them at Great American Music Hall…the time before that in 2007 at Slims my band with Javier Matos “Hud” opened up for them, which was the first time that classic line-up reunited in a really long time. Before that in the 90’s, as most of you know, I played guitar with the band and we released an album in 1999. So this was the first time I got to just watch the band and enjoy the music without being in that headspace of having to perform or load gear or whatever.

The chemistry between these guys is awesome, and having played a lot of these songs in a line-up that consisted of 2 guitars, I worked the most with Larry Schemel currently of Death Valley Girls, getting to hear the sax and vibes treatment was really cool. They even played a song I co-wrote from that 1999 release and that was a trip and an honor to hear coming from these guys. They also had a copy of our cd Ashes of Time along with the classic albums at the merch table.


There are still a few old fart punk bands out there and these guys have been around as long as anybody, but these were some dapper gentlemen laying down some heavy vibes (no pun intended…well maybe yes, the vibes were the loudest thing in the mix last night!) Hahahaha! Great show and an excellent turn out for a Sunday night! Glad I went.

This video shot by my friend Lil Mike actually captures a funny moment where Chris remembers, onstage that he forgot to put a certain someone on the list…someone who played guitar for him for years! hahaha! It was well worth the price of admission. Enjoy the fellas versions of “Green Manalishi” by Peter Green and “She’s Like Heroin to Me” by The Gun Club.

I haven’t posted over here in a few weeks but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been actively blogging. I’ll also be out of town for a week or so as we’re gonna take the train down the coast to Camarillo Ca. to visit fam. About a year ago we took the train across the country  from Cali. to New York via Chicago and we loved it so much we had to scratch the itch albeit with a shorter trip this time.

Meanwhile I’ve been ripping it up with my band and we recently appeared on Radio Valencia. We are also working on new material and we offer a sneak peek of one of the songs during that visit.



I’ve also been posting pretty regularly on my photoblog alphastarephotography so do follow that if you haven’t already.

Last year I posted quite a few photos from the train via my Instagram so if you are into that, you can follow our adventure there!

See you when I return!

We’re going back into the studio today! Andalusia Rose Updates (June 13, 2016) re-blog.

Since releasing ‘First Stone’ last year we’ve been working up quite a bit of material and have enough to begin putting together a proper full length! Our approach will be different this time as we will likely not use a crowdfunding platform to back this recording, though we may consider it for the pressing if […]
