Black Friday Sessions
SIRS 'The Black Friday Sessions' is a footnote in the life of three college mates. Written over the course of a couple of years, this trio's debut album proves to be a fascinating look at life in sometimes the most unusual and thought provoking ways. From finding love in the grocery aisles to a song based on Jean-Paul Sartre's 'No Exit' to the glories of being goth in high school, 'The Black Friday Sessions' proves to have something for everyone. The variety in sonic textures proves to be a collision of influences from Jeff Buckley to Rusted Root to De La Soul to The Violent Femmes. One thing is for sure, instead of shopping one Black Friday, they chronicled these 10 tracks for you. SIRS are: Michael Aquino (Vox, Guitar, Bass and Percussion)- Michael Aquino- rolled around to music back in his parents house when he was an infant. His first concert (at about the age of 4) was for the 8 track player/recorder in the living room. The song was 'Resse's Pieces' dedicated to his love for 'Resse's Pieces'. He loves cheap ukuleles and old mills. Jason Clark (Drums and Percussion)- drove his parents crazy trying to reenact John Bonham drum fills on their kitchen pots pans. He's kept the crazy beats up and is now passing it on to the youth of America by showing them how they could thoroughly p*ss off their parents with a musical instrument. He is an elite epicurean of beer and could tell the difference between an 85 and a 93. Dave Hilton (Vox, Cello, Bass, Violin, Bells, Percussion)- has the ability to play 13 instruments. One day he tried playing them all at the same time but realized he couldn't. 'Hilt' as he is called by his close friends started with the violin at a early age serenading local women for cheese and bread. Now he's a bad ass on the bass, plays punk rock cello grooves and gets along with electronic beats. He shouts out to his young student homies.
