Real Good for Free: Space Toilets’ “The Wizard’s Demon End”

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Jed Davis – formerly of such bands as the Hanslick Rebellion, Collision, Jeebus and others – has been a busy, busy guy this year.

Upon leaving Brooklyn and returning once again to make his home in Nippertown, Davis released “Yuppie Exodus From DUMBO,” a wax cylinder single.

Then he finally got around to finishing up and releasing his years-in-the-making full-length CD, “The Cutting Room Floor.”

Now, he’s teamed up with Avi Zahner-Isenberg – guitarist-vocalist with Sub Pop Records’ indie rockers Avi Buffalo – to form Space Toilets.

Davis describes the project as “an improvisational collaboration.” He says, “We recorded a number of fun keyboard/guitar jams, then added vocalish-type stuff on top.”

The first fruit of their musical labor is a sprawling, 10-minute track titled “The Wizard’s Demon End,” and you can download it for free.

Meanwhile… Davis showcases yet another collaboration live on Tuesday evening at the Fake Coffeehouse (the old Rathskellar) in UAlbany’s Campus Center. Davis, who performs there each Tuesday evening, will join forces with dynamo drummer Jerry Marotta for a free show at 7pm Tuesday. Sharing the bill will be Michael Eck (in maximum solo acoustic mode).
