RASKUL was a band about 23 years ago...let's see i'm 38 now, and i was fifteen back then so...yeah about 23 years ago. Anyway it was Mike Scott-Git Fiddle , Eric Gordon- Ricky Bach, Mike Ross - Vox,and me Paul D. on the drums. Man ... I must say that it was easily the funnest part of my youth. The shows we played were always lots of fun...We even did a mini tour with Neurosis to Eugene, Oregon. Eric was definitely the BEST bass player Ive ever played with. His ability to lock in with me was uncanny. It's almost like he could read my mind....we were basically the same person musically. Mike Scott was FUCKING talented as ALL HELL. He's the only guitarist that I've ever seen who could play rythm and lead at the same time. It was amazing. I didn't realize just how lucky i was until many years later. just to have experienced being in a band with them was a true gift. Keep in mind I was fifteen at the time and these guys were like 27 or 28. Anyway...they looked out for me like older brothers should. We recorded a live demo at the Gilman Street Project.I remember like it was yesterday. T. Odd from Christ on Parade was there as well as "the girls"-Maria and Kelly. It was great! Afterward we all went to Lavalle's pizza on the corner of San Pablo and Gilman for some slices.Anyway...about the demo... It was called "IN OUR THOUGHTS". It had like 8 or 9 songs on it.Marshall really did a great job on it. It sounded GREAT! Eric Gordon might have a copy he could make for anyone who's interested...I'm sure he wouldn't mind. I heard he lives in Ohio or something like that now. but he shouldn't be that hard to find, for those of you who really wanted to. I have alot of stories that will be coming out in a book I'm writing about my life, and there will be an entire chapter about RASKUL in it. The book will be called " The Pablopedia of Mohawks, Cracked Decks, Chipped Teeth and Broken Hearts" anyway...i just want to thank ALL those involved in making RASKUL possible...from Marshall Stax to Lucy Lizzard...and everyone in between. Thank You.
All my love,
