Ether Frolics

I joined this band after responding to their add in the Chicago Reader, looking for a drummer. I was pretty much a kid out of school, and these guys really showed me around the whole Chicago scene. We played about every club/bar/venue in the area, and eventually headed over to Europe for a 3 week tour after our first album was released (40k - with the red cover).

While working on our second album, the band got derailed a bit, and we never got to the final polishing/release stages. I remain immensely proud of the music and direction we were heading, and think the tracks still sound great and should be heard.

Below are some of my favorites - you can listen to all of them for free over at SoundCloud .
