Unlikely, I know.

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)))

Low promo / The Invisible Way

Lovely new promo photo of Low, shot by the always great Zoran Orlic. Look close and you'll see my work, artfully arranged on the Duluthian wrist of Mr. Alan Sparhawk. Main point being, the band has a new record due out in March---and judging by tracks already heard it's going to be special, beyond even what I already expect from them.

Good to see Alan Sparhawk (LOW) still logging miles with a HOLMES Saddle Stitch cuff. The shot is from Barcelona, 3.27.12.

Not guitar straps—-but still cooler than Duluth in winter: Alan Sparhawk of Low w/ a HOLMES black saddle-stitch cuff on the left hand.
