Lark Vs. Owl…..I forgot to ask who was the Lark or Owl.
Lark Vs. Owl…Interesting name for a rock/doom/pop group, and they proved to me to be a very interesting band.
This Seattle based band is part of the Wandering Infinity Production Label.
Dennis told me a little bit about them.
Could you give me a little background?
Were caged pets for a band called Yam in early to mid-00’s. During/after Yam’s demise, adopted by instrumental hip-hop group, starkiller. in 2006, flew the coop and formed Lark vs. Owl, first CD year or so later. Quick migration with Uneasy 2008-2010, but back to old feeding grounds, working on new CD 2012.
What or who inspired you?
Birds of a different feather but liked each others’ side bands (Matt Supernauty, Dennis AJBBV) and said flock it! Also Quasi’s “Including Birds” or something like that; simple/not-so-simple 2-piece band (at the time) said anything’s possible.
What instruments do you play?
Dennis bass/guitar/ukelele/vocals, Matt vocals/drums/keyboards/gong/whistles and kazoo.
What do you listen too?
Like any good songbirds we listen to too much. Wanna reinterpret old folk or John Lee Hooker-style blues but end up just covering the Ramones or Radiohead.
What makes you happy? or sad?
Happy: the courage to fly musically naked (musically only) in front of an audience. Sad: Dealing with Rubber Chickens aka: people truly faking it to make it.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Try to sleep in between reading scraps of nesting paper (Matt-Salman Rushdie jag, Dennis-NW History books).
. If you could do anything you wanted what would it be?
Continue to fly musically naked (again, musically only) in front of larger audiences, perhaps naked audiences.
If you couldn’t tell these guys are hoot, bad pun.
You can hear them and see them at on the web at these locations. Thanks again guys for sharing with us.
