“Hot Mess”

Go Back

The first time we had Black Pistol Fire on the gondola, I was blown away. They brought tons of energy and intensity to their session, and if you've ever seen them live they you'll understand. They have become known for their raucous live shows where guitarist Kevin McKeown runs, jumps and even crowd surfs throughout the show - while shredding on guitar and booming vocals as well. Drummer Eric Owen beats the hell out of his kit and gives live sets real power and rhythm. Anyways, when I saw that they were coming back through Aspen, we decided to film again, and even turn it up a notch. Owen was on a similar kit of my random percussion instruments, and McKeown was lent a beautiful acoustic-electric vintage National guitar from the guys at Belly Up, which we then plugged into a little Marshall pocket-amp. Check it out in action on this first track "Hot Mess" from their 2012 album Big Beat '59. Band Members: Kevin McKeown (vocals, acoustic guitar) Eric Owen (cajon, percussion)
