One guy. A keyboard, a few pedals (reverb, delay, tremolo, fuzz) and that's it. The guy, (me) has been in bunch of other bands; most notably, I played drums in Death Sentence: PANDA! (who had records out on Upset the Rhythm and a couple other Euro labels). I classify the jams as surf rock and honestly the point of reference is more Sunset Strip `66 than Berlin* or Cologne `72.
Earth Jerks is a very pro-California entity.

I listened to this album for the first time in its entirety on a perfectly clear, crisp day in late October. I decided to go on a walk at the cemetery by my apartment as I was feeling rather heavy, mourning the absence of someone’s presence in my life. By the time I got to Kelso (Blue Sky) it felt like Liz was speaking to me personally. It was one of those rare moments where you hear a song for the first time and it feels like you’re in a film. 10/10. On repeat. Josef Gaard
