Wm M Berger was one of our favorite people… someone who gave us a shot when we were at an incredibly low point, still reeling from the loss of Lee Altomare, not sure where the future would lead. WM invited us on his wonderful show My Castle of Quiet, where he would spend the next few years keeping us a regular fixture on his playlists, not to mention releasing “A Desired Level of Unease” on his impeccable label, Prison Tatt Records.
off all the missed opportunities that typified the year in the Communion, i think not being available for this one hurts the most. 2017 was good to some of us in the band as individuals… lives moving forward, loves found, playing on bigger stages… , but not a good year for us as a collective. one show, only a handful of practices, stalled writing. i haven’t been handling it too well… fighting this losing battle against monetary gains and more gratifying companionships, but i’m trying to keep the light on, remain hopeful (uuuugh that fucking word) that this is only a momentary lapse in motivation, and we’ll get our shit together best we can and move this thing forward.
can’t say i have any real answers… only that i hold no grudges and i’m ready when everybody else is. i got notebooks filled with artfully rendered suicidal misanthropy waiting for riffs and blasts.
please try to make this one. Couch Slut and Pink Mass are not to be missed.
