Hey everybody, meet Greg Ashley. This guy is gonna "go places". Greg writes some really good quirky pop songs that make me think of Syd Barrett, Roky Erickson and The Velvet Underground at times (I'm thinking about some of those demos that are on the VU box set in particular). Yeah sure, those are big names to live up to. But like those people were, Greg is on his own trip. Meaning: He doesn't sound like anyone else does. Now, I don't know Greg personally but after listening to his lyrics... I'd bet that he smokes truck loads of pot. But that's just a guess. What I am sure of though, is that he also fronts a pretty killer psy-rock band called Gris Gris. You should pick up their new album, which is called "For The Season" out on Los Angeles based Birdman Records. For now... download Greg's cover of Hank William's "Lost Highway" as well as his songs "She" (no, it's not a Misfits cover) and "Apple Pie And Genocide" (which is kind of the "hit single" if you ask me). Also check this video of homeboy playing "Apple Pie And Genocide" live, it goes off! Sorry about the download speed on this site lately... but what can I say, we're like totally popular man... plus this site is free so suck it raw style.
