Elsewhere on Bulls and Roosters, the jangly swagger and bombastic beat of “Sippy Cup” spirals into the bold declaration of youth, “I got a sippy cup, you’ve got your wedding gown.”“The Cold”illuminates that aforementioned use of space with its delicate buildup and calculated tempo as “Money On It” ponders the nature of relationships with a soulful swing. “Kenmore Ave.” proves to be a special moment as it marks the first of three songs—including “Alison”and “Southern Comfort”—that Danny penned for Together Pangea. “I went to rehab in September 2015,” he recalls. “It was time for a change, and I’m thankful to MusiCares. While I was there, I had an acoustic guitar, and I began writing ‘Kenmore Ave.’ It was big for me.”Inspired by a John Baldessari painting named “Tips for Artists Who Want To Sell” William saw in the downtown L.A. museum The Broad, Bulls and Roosters speaks to the balance the band artfully wrangles. “These two competing ideas, commercial success and expression, are always in the back of my mind,” he admits. “The album has a lot of that conflict in it. The piece argues that paintings of bulls sell better than paintings of cows, and paintings of roosters sell better than paintings of chickens. We have D.I.Y. roots and punk ethics, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have strong hooks and melodies. It’s a push-and-pull.”It pays off in the end as Bulls and Roosters represents Together Pangea at their boldest, brightest, and best to date. “We wanted it to just be a good rock ‘n’ roll record people could enjoy,” concludes Danny. “We’ve grown up, yet we’re still the same dudes. It was time to sprinkle a little sunshine in there without everything being so heavy and dark.”“I hope people have some connection,” William leaves off. “We’re just being as honest as ever.
Having all played in bands from a young age, the work ethic it takes to move your life around the world just isn’t something that most people possess. Playing in garages to arenas and back again, sleeping on floors and in vans for the better part of the last fifteen years, they found their way to Southern California and were pushed only by that dream so many end up letting slip away.
Singer/Guitarist Davey Warsop (Beat Union, Suedehead) and bass player/vocals Dan Smith (The Dear & Departed) are UK exports. Smith by way of New Zealand and also widely known for his achievement in the tattoo world, they both moved to California in the early 2000’s without knowing each other. Korey Kingston (The Aggrolites/Suedehead), a San Diegan drummer raised on a healthy diet of Reggae, Ska and a West Coast view on that same upbringing, would end up completing this trio perfectly. Despite their different geographical beginnings, they quickly realized they were all very much from the same place. “The timing couldn’t have been better” says Smith. “As the story goes, both myself and Korey reached out to Davey by way of text message, coincidentally within a minute of each other, suggesting we start something. We hadn't even met, so i think Davey saw that as some kind of synchronicity, perhaps too much of a coincidence for him to ignore. Then before we knew it, we were already in the studio recording”.
It was only a matter of time before the hiatus they were all experiencing and this coincidence would essentially bring them together. Musically, it is exactly what you might expect kids schooled early on The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers would sound like. Then, submerse that in the sun drenched beach cities of Southern Californian surf,skate and punk culture and the sounds of The Descendents or early Green Day and you will find Sharp Shock. The way the band formed can only be described as organic and after some time away from playing and being rather disheartened with the machine of the music industry and not knowing where they fit in, they all agreed to take much more of a DIY approach this time. Warsop, having produced and engineered countless records over the years at Hurley studios shortly after moving to the US, was a key piece in the productivity of self producing the debut album. “We tracked the majority of this record live, to keep the performances honest and fun. Like our name suggests, we’re trying to keep everything about this band direct and to the point. From the songwriting being short and snappy, to us being a trio…we don’t want to overcomplicate anything.” says Warsop. Sharp Shock had their first record under their belt within a very short amount of time and it would be no surprise if a second wasn’t too far away. “This feels like it did when i was covering my favorite bands in my garage as a kid. We are doing only what we know…and doing it from the heart” say Smith.
Unlearn Everything will be released via Heart & Skull Records this summer.
