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)))

Megafaun + Justin Vernon

From the department of strange irony: Justin Vernon of Bon Iver made a surprise appearance with Megafaun in Wisconsin a couple of weeks back and used a HOLMES strap---the custom carved MEGAFAUN on Phil Cook's guitar.
