The Spiller Reunion

Well, I'm back in Atlanta, recovering from a fantastic weekend. I drove down to Florida on Friday morning and arrived in town just in time to hang at Vinny's place for a few minutes before we were off to the last practice before our reunion show. The practice went pretty well, we were ready.

The show on Saturday night was a blur. Stacy gave me a great gift, a framed picture from back in 1997, and I got to see so many friends that I hadn't seen in ages. Jensen Serf Company kicked off the show, with garage-y goodness, and The Semis broght the rock as they always do. We setup quickly and got to work, and boom, just like that the set was over. 

Check out some of the pics from the show!

Formed in 1996 from the ashes of singer/guitarist John McNicholas’ original punk outfit, Lie, Spiller made quite the impression on the Bay area’s musical landscape during their heyday almost a decade ago. Gold Leader (which was released on Super6 Records way back when) is an extremely charming set and marked by crunchy, grungy guitars all buoyed by Marcus McCord’s bouncy, yet brawny bass lines. It’s all heavily garnished with the band’s penchant for sunny harmonies and infectious hooks that seemed destined for 90s radio gold. Spiller never “made it big,” but their return (guitarist Scott Harrel is no loner in the lineup and original drummer Pete Joseph has been replaced by Palantine frontman Vinnie Cosetino) is welcome breath of fresh air for sure.

Two bands, established surf-classic rock revivalists The Semis and up and coming St. Pete garage-rock sensation Michael Christmas, are set to play support on this must-see bill.
