Dead Meadow's unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitars fuzz bliss, and singer Jason Simon's high-pitched melodic croon have won over both psychedelic pop and stoner-rock fans alike. Although the band's members met while attending punk shows in and around Washington D.C.'s scene, they draw more of their sound from such classic rock legends as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. The trio formed in the fall of 1998 out the ashes of local indie rock bands The Impossible Five and Coulour by singer-guitarist Jason Simon, bassist Steve Kille, and drummer Mark Laughlin. The three members set out to fuse their love of early 70's hard rock and 60's psychedelia with their love of fantasy and horror writers J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft. ~ Rick Kutner, All Music Guide
Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel
T'was from the sands of Laguna Beach where Tomas & Wyatt and fellow Elevator repair service collegue met through a dolphin's cry in the midst of the night, waning-moon present and shimmering across the moonlit sea. The 3 most watery human beings then started to "jam" as a guitar-less mind exploration voyage through the realms of time and space itself. Through their arduous adventures an EP was conceived.. "Staring at the Sun.", about the mind and how a human being can go through stages of love & post-psychotic-ness. They have lately returned to live and frolic in and out of the sepultural smog of los angeles, currently working on more tantalizing tunes towards a full length LP to be released in the next coming of moon phases.... Mr.Elevator & the Brain Hotel.
