Raspberry with Phil Ek Part II

While I have no memory of the setlist played by Raspberry, I'm quite sure we would have played this rocker called William T. Ryker (yes, I know that's the wrong spelling). We played a lot of house shows back in…

Raspberry with Phil Ek Part I

Maybe we were in pursuit of our version of anthemic punk, emotional discord, or simply the right party to play at. I don't know what we were searching for, but I do know we loved the music we made…

Scott Songs: December 2018

Song: Golden Boy, Glenda, and Shamoo
