Jimmy Chamberlin, ex-Smashing Pumpkins drummer, has a new project called Skysaw (previously named ‘THIS’) which has just signed with local label Dangerbird Records (Beady Eye, Silversun Pickups, Minus the Bear, Fitz and the Tantrums, Hot Hot Heat) and will release a full-length LP, 'Great Civilizations', on June 21st.
The band is giving a free download track ‘No one can tell’, in exchange of your email address: .http://www.skysawmusic.com/
The track doesn’t have a lot to do with The Smashing Pumpkins’ work, as the song is a galloping number with fast beats, multi layered guitars, some jazzy arrangements, and some drowning vocals, the whole thing being qualified by Chamberlin himself of ‘progressive’ and ‘symphonic’ rock.
But this is what he had to say about his new band:‘My thoughts on SKYSAW after we first started writing were that this is something very special. Having worked in many varied situations, I can honestly say that SKYSAW is much different from anything I have experienced in the past. The icing on the cake is to be partnered up with Dangerbird–certainly some of the brightest minds in the new music business paradigm. We look forward to moving into the future with them!’
‘Sky Saw’ is also the name of a Brian Eno’s track,.. just saying!
The full band consisting of Jimmy Chamberlin, Anthony Pirog and Mike Reina (from ‘The Jackfields’), Boris Skalsky and Paul Wood (from New York band ‘Dead Heart Bloom’) will apparently make their live debut in Los Angeles next Monday at the Echo. Mondays are free at the Echo, but strangely the band is not announced on the club site.
