Unruly Things, speeding through the morning mist with the snow capped Sierras shrinking in the distance the thump of an engine hurtles an aging CB into the desert where the sun beats down on black leather like a frustrated osprey attempting to crack a turtles shell for the first time. With members hailing from the midwest, the deep south and the pacific northwest Unruly Things bring a unique blend of rock and roll that travels the winding roads across the plains and down the mountains, in the light of the day, through the dead of the night, from the billowing fog of San Francisco, through to the small towns, to the bright lights of New York City and back again.
Fast Piece of Furniture
Fast Piece of Furniture is the vehicle for the music of guitarist/singer/songwriter Tony Lowe. The music evokes late 70s New York, mid 60s California, and the decaying midwest that he grew up in. The band's lineup has included Jeff Nelson (Minor Threat) and Todd Swalla (Necros, Laughing Hyenas) on drums, Mahlon Orrin (Black Dahlia Murder) and Aki Yoshi (the Seshen) on bass, and Erika Kuester and Mahesh Rao (the Seshen) on keyboards. Originally the band was based in Toledo Ohio, where Tony partnered with Jeff Nelson to record the debut album Adventures in Contentment in the sprawling Victorian Paddock Mansion. The results are available on Dischord and Adult Swim Records. Fast Piece is now based in the San Francisco Bay area. The latest recording, No Springs Honest Weight is out now on Adult Swim Records.
Birds swim, fish fry, and we play rock and roll. That's all you gotta know. We started this project in October 2008 to perform some of Scott's material that didn't make it in the October Allied set. When October Allied and the Trenchermen broke up, we made this project a main focus and now have a complete set of original rock and roll music, and are getting it out to local clubs.
