Right now you can preview 4 tracks from BML on our Bandcamp page / pre-order the album. You can also read a piece that Jason Sebastian Russo (Hopewell/Mercury Rev/Guiding Light) wrote on the video for title track.
Bill’s career spans 3 decades – in addition to St Johnny (who appeared on Geffen Rarities compilation alongside Beck, Nirvana, Hole and Weezer) and Grand Mal (who received a nearly perfect score on Pitchfork), he contributed to records by Shady (aka David Baker from Mercury Rev/Variety Lights), Charles Douglas and The Silent League.
Lets take a detailed look at Bill’s career and accomplishments.
