Dana Colley, Jerome Deupree and Jeremy Lyons together are “Members of Morphine: the Elastic Waste Band.” They perform songs by the late Morphine-frontman Mark Sandman, as well as their own brand of “psycho-delta blues.”
The trio include Dana on baritone sax and Jerome on drums, two-thirds of the original line-up of the seminal Boston-based progressive rock band, the two who backed Sandman up their debut record Good and the band’s break-out follow-up, Cure for Pain. Jeremy Lyons is a slide guitarist and singer from New Orleans who met Dana and Jerome after relocating to Cambridge, MA following Hurricane Katrina. Jeremy plays electric guitar and a version Sandman’s own 2-string slide bass.
In July of 2009, Jeremy, Dana and Jerome performed at Nel Nome Del Rock Festival in Palestrina, Italy, ten years to the day after Mark passed away on that very same stage.
The band will also be playing as part of the Gimmesound Sandman Charity show this Wednesday at TT the Bear’s. Details and tickets over at http://www.gimmesound.com/index.cfm?CFID=9138719&CFTOKEN=4f642901b7446226-B6E9E8BB-5056-A848-05CC9D662FA01B09
