Sage
Sage
Guy Davis, Marc Olsen & Mike Williamson . Sage practically connect the dots between Middle Eastern and psychedelic-American twang. Guitarist and vocalist Marc Olsen has a voice like an echo buried in sand and his guitar work is an elusive blend of precise plucking, liquidy jazz excursions, and grim, desert acid-rock. Guy Davis’ bass work is dry and rubbery (also not unlike Mike Watt’s), while drummer Mike Williamson drives the band like he’s aboard rollicking gypsy caravan, erupting now and then with sharp punky jabs. Imagine the Minutemen playing in an opium den.
Voodoo Gearshift
Voodoo Gearshift
Voodoo Gearshift started in 1987 in Des Moines, Iowa. Bred from metal and speed, they evoke crunching melodies that at times will abruptly halt and twist into a new theme, with grace. Their excellent songwriting and musicianship garnered then a descent following in the midwest. on their first tour to the northwest they caught the eye of Daniel House who signed them to CZ records in 1992. So they loaded up the van and headed to Seattle. Personal conflicts led to the departure of several band members and they settled in with Scooter Haslip in 1993. They dissolved by the late 90's, but are back to rock the new millennium! Most recent band members included Mark Bruggeman(drums), Scooter Haslip (bass){ex-Mos Generator}, and Jim Roth(guitar vocals) {ex- built to spill}. Past memers include, Steve Tyler (guitar) and Joe Page (bass){The Hollowmen)} and Paul Sorrels (bass). They produced 4 albums.
