about

Tracks 1-11: Everything You Said Was Wrong (LP)
Tracks 12-16: Everything Stays (EP)

All titles composed by Karl A.D. Evangelista/M. Rei Scampavia (Grexsounds, ASCAP)

For Ayler, the rats, & everything that happened.

Have you heard this story? A man injures his leg during the hunt. He's in the middle of the savannah, with no means to treat the wound. The leg rots and death approaches. The last minute he's picked up by an airplane. He looks down and sees a land of pure white below him, glistening in the light. It's the summit of a snow-capped mountain; the mountain is Kilimanjaro. As he gazes down, he feels the life flowing out of him, and he thinks, "That's where I was headed..."

This whole thing started in a living room in Oakland. Over a decade, half a dozen albums, hundreds of performances, and tens of thousands of miles later, it still feels like yesterday - even though absolutely everything has changed. If you follow the sound, you’ll know what we mean. It’s been an absolute pleasure; as our hero and friend Louis Moholo-Moholo says, “You don’t have to love us… we love you.”
