Pause For The Jets
(With Bonus 7", 2PC)
Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. The unpublished novel My Own Secret Service details the origins of the underground band earwig and their fantastic adventures as they battle to save the Multiverse from a secret society of invading demons who occupy a parallel dimension. This self-proclaimed "true" rock-and-roll memoir forms the basis of earwig's album Pause For The Jets. Infusing classic alternative chops with dramatic nods to everything from Kate Bush to cyberpunk, this science-fiction rock-opera testifies to the importance of pushing artistic boundaries and not falling victim to musical trends. This album raises the bar for the band with it's grinding synth riffs, ragged guitar lines and melodic bass-driven stunners. Not just another indie band from Columbus, Ohio, earwig is the edgy, underground rock vehicle of guitarist and vocalist Lizard McGee, who has been at the helm since the band's inception in the '90s. These days, the band is a true family affair with McGee's daughter James McGee-Moore joining full-time to galvanize their unrestrained live performance. Known for great songwriting and spontaneous and reckless live shows, earwig is one of independent music's best kept secrets.
