Sausage Pilot

Posted By on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 12:45 PM

One of the real joys of Lottery League is when players nobody would ever have thought to put together without the intervention of the almighty hopper turn out to be an excellent band. There were more than a few of those last time — Stimulus Package, Free Moments and Hapsburg Lip leap to mind most readily, but there were others — and this year, Sausage Pilot seem poised to hit that level. Amps II Eleven’s Aaron Dowell, Rare Birds’/Dr. Teeeth’s Rusty Boyer, Good Touch Bad Touch’s Ryan Wilkins, Pere Ubu’s Steve Mehlman, and Lottery League organizer and Deathers singer Jae Kristoff are a disparate bunch whose regular bands range from lumpen metal stomp, to archly arty protopunk, to Kinks-y Victorian whimsy. But despite that wide stylistic variance, they’ve happened upon a fun, very natural feeling, groove-oriented heavy rock with some riffs that damn near filleted me when I dropped by to document a rehearsal this week at Mehlman’s studio. The pics and tunes are going to do the rest of the talking. —Kretsch
