Remember that scene in Dig when the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe kicks that dude in the head? Well it’s entirely possible that some of the members of Spindrift — who play Saturday, September 13th at the Northern Lights Lounge in Detroit — were there to witness that type of insanity.

You see, Spindrift feature members of the BJM, as well as peeps from the Warlocks, so you know you’re going to be in for some drug-induced, psychedelic, freaky pop music. And if the fact that their new album, The West, is on the Dandy Warhols’ Beat the World label gets you excited, or if the knowledge that one of their songs will be featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Hell Ride tickles your fancy…well, we’re pretty sure we know where you’re going to be on Saturday night. Friends of Dennis Wilson and Bird Dogs are also on the bill. — Ryan Allen

    Spindrift is the most unique and inspiring band I’ve come across in ages… you absolutely have to check this band out!

    oh… and yes, if you get the chance to talk to Dave in Spindrift, ask him to tell you the story of trying to get the club to pay the band (BJM) after Anton was carried away by the cops for the infamous head-kick. Dave had the unfortunate task of trying to get paid after that gig (and many other Anton-incidents) while he did his time in The Massacre.
