Once or twice, usually when trying to avoid thinking about something else---I've thought that I should organize a festival with a lineup including only bands/musicians who have used my straps + etc over the years. This would ideally happen in my back yard, with the spirits of Rowland S. Howard and Mark Linkous acting as emcees. #spiritualized #low #slowdive #wilco #leeranaldo #stephenomalley #swans #deathvessel #mymorningjacket#deanwareham #megafaun #neilhalstead #sunno)))
The HOLMES front office would like to thank the rock gods for inducing Dean Wareham to choose his Fano for this KEXP session.
Finally getting to scope a HOLMES strap in use on Dean Wareham's Fano PX6. At the Bell House, Brooklyn, 11/29.
Good things happening as we sail on to the end of the year...
File under: the year gets even better. A shop-fresh HOLMES custom strap on Dean Wareham's Fano PX6. Dean and his apparently endless powers (see: Galaxie 500, Luna, Dean & Britta) have long played a significant role in my musical landscape, and as it turns out he's quite the gentleman as well. The honor is all mine on this one.
As a side note---purely as an aesthetic object, how awesome is that Fano guitar?
