Let me tell you something. In March, Denny, the awesome dude who wears mesh trucker hats, drives a bitchin’ Firebird and occasionally comes to our shows holding bandsigns he crafted in Microsoft Paint, was real worried when he found out Scott was playing his last show with us:
“THOSE ARE SOME BIG SHOES TO FILL.”
When we told Denny that Jason Mowery was our new man, he promptly tracked Jason (aka Mowie, Mow Mow, JMOW, JMO, Chairman Mow, the Conductor) down and said, “YOU’VE GOT SOME BIG SHOES TO FILL.”
Denny said some awesome other things, most of which I drank from my memory and replaced with the lyrics from Queensryche’s first album.
Well, that handsome old coot was more than right. Replacing Scott is a task and a half. But Jason is ready for this. And he smells good, too.
If you don’t remember him, or lived outside of the 614 in the late nineties and early aughts, Jason was the drummer for Denovo. They were fucking incredible and only an asshole wouldn’t have conceded that Mowie was one of the best 2 or 3 drummers in town at the time. And he still is.
So he’s bringing his nutso, artful style to Bicentennial Bear and if the first couple of practices are any indication, this is going to be a real exciting time for us. Welcome to the fold, dude, and get cracking, because we just booked a bunch of shows!
