Hello Deadheadland –  got some new music, from what might be an unexpected source for many: Greg Ginn, leader of the iconic punk band Black Flag.  Many of you know Greg has always been on the bus, even when he and Henry Rollinswe’re getting in the van  !  Well his current music is infused with psychedelic roots, while still coming at you from a new direction.  He is touring extensively – go see him when he is near you!  Tonight his band plays in Huntington Beach, California, and tommorow (4/1) in L.A. at Molly Malones.  Their tour continues across the country,  into the middle and then the east coast.  See all the dates at the end of this post, and on www.gregginn.com or myspace.com/txcorrugators

Greg Ginn’s music today is right in line with bands/artists from the roots as in Grateful Dead, Tea Leaf Green, Delta Nove’, Railroad Earth, etc.  Ginn began in 1976 and hasn’t stopped since!  Over the past two years, Ginn has performed 200+ dates while steadily touring across the US promoting both groups and last year’s CD release of JAMBANG’sConnecting” and Greg Ginn & The Taylor Texas Corrugators’The Goof Off Experts.”  

Greg Ginn & the Taylor Texas Corrugators are an instrumental group that incorporates many styles into their music. Rock/jazz/country/blues/latin/psychedelia all find their way into the mix. On the two studio recordings (Bent Edge released in 2007, and Goof Off Experts released in 2008), Greg plays all of the instruments except drums.  Live, the Corrugators are quite a different proposition. Playing about 150 shows (most of them opening for JAMBANG) in the last year, the group played 100% improvised sets. On this tour, look for the Corrugators to introduce some sound loops into a portion of the set at times. For the tours Ginn is playing bass/guitar and has enlisted JAMBANG member Gary Piazza on guitar, and New Moonson’s Sean Hutchinson on drums.

Recently in the press: 
“The sound of guitarist Greg Ginn, for those who have heard him, is instantly familiar. That is, unless you can find another guitarist who manages to meld a nasty, gutbucket blues tone with rock edge and jazz thoughtfulness. We won’t wait while you look. ”
Kevin Williams, Chicago Tribune (Mar 27, 2009)

“Greg Ginn is complicated — and misunderstood…”
Ryan Ritchie, LA Weekly (Jul 01, 2008)

“When most people think of Greg Ginn, bands like The Grateful Dead, Disco Biscuits or Eoto aren’t necessarily the first things that come to mind…”
– Daily Gazette in Albany (Apr 06, 2009)
