WHY :
Says composer, guitarist, and bandleader Dan Nettles :
“We meet this week in March to play, and during the daylight we record
a new, as yet untitled record, which is what I’d like to talk about
first.

The record will feature mostly new compositions. The live shows on
KenoshaKid.BandCamp.com really stretch… we go some fantastic places…
and I’m really proud of all they have to offer. I wanted to take this
opportunity in the studio to do something the opposite… something more
composed, more arranged, and more textural. I keep thinking of the
wild exstacy of a record like “Band of Gypsies” and a beautiful,
arranged record like “Pet Sounds” and how they could somehow meet in
the middle.  Like, take the best of our wild 12 minute versions, and
distill them into something potent, beautiful and five minutes long.
Like moonshine…

To make this happen, I enlisted my longtime working rhythm section,
Marlon Patton and Robby Handley, who bring so much to the music, and
work together telpathically.  I called upon friends from afar to add
their unique voices: Peter Van Huffel from Berlin, Jacob Wick from San
Francisco, and Greg Sinibaldi from Seattle.  I have deep roots with
each of them, and for the past 8 months I have been fleshing out the
music with each of them in mind, finding ways for each voice to shine.

I’ve been working and saving towards this for about three years. I
wasn’t sure what it is all about, and I’m still finding my way towards
the music. I have to say that the wild cyclone of life continues to
educate me. There has been a lot of change, and love, and loss, and a
lot of healing from loss in my family, and among my
friends-who-are-family. Nothing new right ? Everyone has there fair
share, and that’s part of how I see this particular project.  We have
seeds, and trees, and roots, and storms that knock the trees down… the
same is in music, in how we take what we are born with, the language
we aquire, and the beauty and destruction we create with it. Somehow
this project will reflect all of this, and the webs that hold us all
together.”
