sweet, gentle, eternally kind Gil, may calm and serenity wash over your soul in a wave of sonic proportions. my family and i will treasure the work you did here as long as we stand. love, Jeremy Szuder.
here is a brand new jammy i’ve been chipping away at for over a year (along with a handful of other unfinished chunes). finally found the time and headspace to get this one solidified enough to turn over to my wonderful colaborative musical partner for his magical treatment. thus presenting to you here, the newest sounds from BLACK ARK PSYCHEDELICK SOUL & JAZZ REVUE.
a piano and a guitar are taking drinks under the red lights of the stage. they each take turns whispering the forlorn felonies of love and carefully straining them through the sandy mesh of red velvet and silk. the helpless crowd of youthful quietness,shudders. to be living amongst the dead is a call at arms for the heart to cry one million jaded tears. the piano and guitar both agree; she is obviously not human. and still they both carried her out over the clouds, out of the skies. 02.22.05 copywrite:jeremy szuder
here is another barnstormer from back in the day…i would say somewhere in 95. from the sounds of it, it must have been a punk rock summer for us kids. ollie on a dime!

aaaaand while were posting Los Cincos stuff, here is one of the few flyers that i made for our band. pretty legendary line up here. probably why i wanted to go all out with the design. mixed media flyer by jeremy szuder
the title track for our, i believe, third studio album. recorded in Los Angeles @ Poop Alley by Tom Grimely 1996. 3/4’rs of this stomper being mostly instrumental, Bobby on drums, Ryan doing some slide guitar, me on floor toms/vocals and Dennis and Dave holding it DOWN. there was a Five Funky Sins recording floating around for a brief period of time that i felt was very close to upstaging this proper version. in any case, a track i was always proud to play live and if you have no idea about this album…here is one of the 8 tracks off of it.
