From Carl's Machine's Pump: Lighter fare. I have a new sound.
Lighter fare. I have a new sound. It’s similar to Brave Combo in subject matter and song styles, but the actual sonic nature of the music is unlike anything BC ever was. For now, I’m calling it The Carl Finch Sound, which is pretty straight-forward. It involves cool beats, synthesized keyboards, and processed vocals. I will be performing my first club show as this entity on Tuesday, March 13 at Andy’s Bar, right on the square, in historic downtown Denton. Joining me will be Danny O’Brien on manipulated brass instruments and Alan Emert on modified drums and weird-ass percussion noises. But that’s not all, not by a longshot. Also on the bill will be Belle and The Bohemian, two of Brave Combo’s best friends. They are also known as Danny and Michelle Jerabek, from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Michelle is a singer/songwriter and an accomplished saxophonist, well-versed in myriad R&B styles. And Danny will be familiar to many Dentonites. He’s a brilliant button-box accordionist and has graced the Combo stage countless times over the years. In fact, he and I have a side project called The Nice Musics. We released an album a few years ago and will be playing a couple of selections from that, too. If you reside anywhere in North Texas, you should show up. Oh yeah, it’s free!
