I shot the cover for Colin Loggins’ latest Full Catastrophe Living release “Drowning By Proxy.” It’s got an indie pop sensibility + drum machines + a love of 80s English new wave. Think Ultra Vivid Scene, Guided By Voices, and New Order. It’s both ecstatic and introspective and it reminds me of feelings I had when the nights were long and the days started when you woke up. You can listen to the tracks on his site. Ride into the Sun is a personal fave.
I met Colin in Northampton, MA before I moved to NYC. He worked at the record store. I worked at the coffee shop. Most of my time was spent making paintings and reading books with very long words in them but we hung out, made some music and usually gathered at the legendary Bay State Hotel in the evening. Two things you need to know about the Bay State:
–Colin and I saw the recently re-formed Love play in front of about 14 people.
–Mal Thursday, who booked the bands, once married a girl named Wednesday so her name would be Wednesday Thursday.
Here’s Love in front of slightly more people:
