My Father and I

I love this photo of my father and I. It was taken after The Blood Arm opened for Franz Ferdinand at The Hollywood Palladium in 2009. It’s been missing for a few years now, but thanks to my friend Bekki Newton, we were able to track the photo down and I’m really pleased to have it. I can’t wait to explain the whole thing to my kids.

Thanks goes to photographer Timothy Norris for capturing a moment.


Franz Ferdinand After Party

Here you have Ali Bell and I in the dark of the after partáy. Photo by Bob Hardy of Franz Ferdinand. Congrats goes to the band on their greatest-hits-album Hits to the Head. The two new singles are fantastic – as are the rest of the songs.

This photo was taken after the last Franz Ferdinand show in Berlin. My band Mexican Radio opened. I’m so appreciative of their continued support for The Blood Arm and our various musical projects over the years. They are a great band – so go buy that album!

The Buff Club, 2007

April 4, 2007: We distribute beer at Glasgow’s The Buff Club and party with Alex Kapranos and Bob Hardy of Franz Ferdinand. Seems like a long time ago now, but boy, did we have fun!
