Hey y'all! This video is pretty old now but still a decent portrayal of LUMPS in a live setting. I'm now the last man standing from this particular moment in time but based on the interview portion of this video, that's probably not much of a surprise. Not necessarily because I'm an egomaniacal control freak, which I swear has only become a thing out of necessity for LUMPS's survival, but because my boys have grown up and become successful adults in the big bad real world. I'm still sitting here trying to figuring out what "successful adult" means for myself as a human American so in the meantime I am LUMPS.
Please don't misunderstand, while I am at the core, there are new LUMPS involved now. From the label that released our limited edition cassette, King Pizza Records, comes the man behind the crust, Greg Hanson on drums. Being that I'm quite a bit less talented at socializing/networking than Mr. Hanson, I'm not nearly as tuned into what is going on with local musicians and therefore had no idea who to recruit for bass duties. Thankfully Greg knew that Mr. Rich Seibert was looking for an outlet to unleash his pent up nastiness. Rich was previously known around town as that guy who plays singer/songwriter-like acoustic sets and could rip on trumpet if needed. Now, Mr. Seibert is a loud and proud all-around RIPPER of LUMPS-sized proportions.
And those are my guys. Yep, you counted right. Just the three of us. Keeping it real.
We've got some new jams that we've been bumping at shows around NYC lately. So far about an EPs worth. Hoping to double down on that and have enough for a new album within the coming year. I'm horrible with estimating time frames though so don't take my word for it. Could be sooner, could be later.
