New EP: Mental Blood Focus


There have been many times lately when really all I want to hear is the sound of a guitar with a bunch of wood and metallic stuff shoved through the strings, run through a bunch of delays and a Rat pedal. And then there is the rest of the time, when I just want to hear the song "Some Guys Have All The Luck." So, one stop shopping here, basically.

"Skullpile Sunrise" is named after a song by the same name by 90s Charlottesville art-metal band The Middle Way (featuring members of Hedonistic Cravings). We did a show together, and it was also the first show of the (can I say it?) extremely twee indie-pop band Charming. After Charming's set, I looked at their set list and I was very impressed that one of their songs was named "Skullpile Sunrise"; it took me longer than I would like to admit to realize it was actually The Middle Way's set list. But I still think that is one of my favorite song titles of all time.

  1. Thanks for the flash-back to that show. I wish we (Charming) had written a song name "Skullpile Sunrise"... who doesn't? (And glad to have stumbled upon all this Lindaman material...)

    1. That show embodied everything awesome about Charlottesville music in the 90s--those three totally different bands on a bill together, and it was totally great. And everyone had a good time, because there was nothing else to do! FYI, there's still time for a Charming to reunite to record Skullpile Sunrise--the world has been waiting!
