|ride the snake press release...|
hello everyone! the new 7" by boston's life partners is out now. two song blast of mutant punk or classic rock played by aliens. featuring acclaimed avant trumpter greg kelly, and members of major stars, nmperign, la drugs, and heathen shame. past releases on twisted village. the trumpet guitar dual towards the end of side a always slays me. 300 copies. offered here is a truly unique experience: the opportunity to live through a beautifully tragic and serendipitous series of events over and over again without having to get too personally involved.
based out of somerville, ma, the life partners have existed in various forms since the dawn of the new millennium. dave and mike first began to take themselves seriously as both a novelty punk act and a musical couple after making a post-collegiate thelma and louise style journey to america?s southwest in 2002. though line-ups and likenesses have come and gone out the window over the years, the band solidified itself as the current quartet after adding greg kelley and paul guercio in 2006. it’s casual! their official releases include ‘partners forever’ (cd, twisted village, 2003) and ‘back 2 life’ (lp, partnership records, 2005). this new single (ride the snake, 2008) marks the recorded debut of the ensemble listed below. a full length lp is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2009.
