EZTV – Boot & Saddle
EZTV at the Boot & Saddle, Philadelphia. Opening up for Ex Hex they played the kind of rock n roll I like to hear. A little bit mellow, a little bit jangley…
It’s not entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman’s US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it’s not far from the truth. Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track and, in a desire to round out the songs, he enlisted bassist Shane O’Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of Widowspeak).
And as for the Mike and Shane – from my angle I could not get a good shot of them – so they don’t exist (in this photo set).
The headliners for this show were Ex Hex – check out their gallery here.
