Music Monday: “Twenty-One,” by Guy Gilray

front-coveryhtbtIf you read You Had to Be There: Three Years of Mayhem and Bad Decisions in the Portland Music Scene, you might recall that I managed a local band called Arctic Sun.  As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I’ll be re-releasing the book under a new title (Music, Mayhem, and Bad Decisions: Three Years in the Portland Punk Scene) next year … but the content is not going to change.

In that light, I am sharing a solo piece by Guy Gilray, who was the lead guitarist in Arctic Sun.  Guy released a new album, His Name is Thunder, this month.  This song, “Twenty-One,” is from an earlier album entitled Baby Blue and Bubblegum Pink.  I love the way he’s incorporated film and video footage from his older bands’ work in his presentation.  The whole thing is delightfully atmospheric.  Enjoy!
