Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band: December 3, 2016 Union Pool

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band

We’re always happy to have a new Solar Motel Band tape to share; even more so when that tape features three brand new jams. Appearing this past Saturday night at Union Pool as a trio (that’s Chris Forsyth, Peter Kerlin, and Ray Kubian), the band came prepared with some previously unheard funk. Maybe it’s just because Forsyth has been soundtracking the Stones film Cocksucker Blues recently, but I couldn’t help but be reminded of later 70’s Rolling Stones—especially on the eighteen-minute closer, “American History & Science Fiction” (working title). But whatever far-out rock gods these guys are channeling these days, it sounds damn fine.

I recorded this from our usual location in the venue, with a board feed from Union Pool engineer Doug. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!

    “Secondly, all of our downloads offered through Bandcamp will come on a Pay-As-You-Want basis”

    Well, that didn’t last long…

    Yes, thanks to your sarcastic comment we realized that when we ran out of free-download tokens yesterday, all albums defaulted to $7 and didn’t automatically reset back to $0 when we bought more free-download tokens. Thanks for politely bearing with us as we learn the ins-and-outs of this new distribution method.

    It didn’t last long because we ran out of free credits. I just bought more free credits from Bandcamp, so you can now go and download it for free again.
