The reunion picks up pace…

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

This past weekend Farmer Dave joined his (former?) band mates on stage for four California shows and thus completing the classic Beachwood Sparks lineup of Gunst, Rademaker, Scher and Sperske! You can read a short review of the shows in our forum. Thank you Michael!

Also, The Tyde premiered a brand new song, “Banned”, at the Echo on Friday. Check it out here.

The Quarter After visit Europe

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

The Quarter After (with Rob Campanella, producer of The Tyde, Beachwood Sparks and contributor to frausdots) are heading out on a tour to Europe this fall. They’ll be visiting UK, France and Spain so if you’re living there you should check them out. More specific information on tour dates will be available soon on the bands official homepage

Fans of Beachwood Sparks should really check out this band. We got the chance to talk to Rob Campanella a while ago and he shared his love of the Sparks with us saying that there are a couple of songs on the new album (which we wrote a news item about a couple of weeks ago) which would never have been made with out inspiration from the music of our beloved cosmic cowboys. You can stream their new album in entirety here

We at The Calming Seas hope to perform and post an interview with Mr. Robbie C about his work with The Tyde, Beachwood Sparks, frausdots & other artists in a month or two. Be on the look out for that!
