I haven’t said anything about this here yet, but a week and a half ago, I was invited to join The Sexy Accident as its bassist, and tonight is my first rehearsal with the guys. The band is essentially the brainchild of Jesse Kates, who suffers from a un/healthy worship of David Gedge and Kurt Heasley. He’s also bent on making weird time signatures accessible, much like Andy Partridge.
I really dig bands that seem to intentionally hone in on a certain sound, even at the risk of commercial success. (Ronnie Martin comes to mind here.) So this opportunity really excites me.
