More Love for the Spot

SNR has a big music feature on Daisy Spot in the current issue. Local rock god Mike Farrell is very frank about drug use and its involvement in the creative process. Kudos for that.

But my favorite detail in the piece is that the record is produced by “longtime fan Dana Gumbiner” of Deathray and LGS and that he took to this role because “he realized it might be the only way he’d ever have the Daisy Spot album he’d long desired.” This seems like a classic Sacramento detail, and I don’t mean that in the usual self-deprecating sense that I usually intend. It’s kind of like starting a Web site to talk about Coffee Works (err, I mean, so that some anonymous person might write a comment about Coffee Works) mainly because you want to read a Web site with anonymous comments about Coffee Works.

Oh, and new drummer Alex Jenkins was in my extended group of friends when I was 8 and now he lives 1 block over from me. Small town indeed.
