Red Eye Flight

Red Eye Flight

 

Daddo Bogich approached me after seeing me play a show at Luna Lounge. He was recording tracks with a producer and asked me to play on them. His vision was pure art rock. Radiohead's OK Computer which, having just come out, was blowing us all away at the time. I was completely in my element. As far as he was concerned there was almost no such thing as too much guitar, and the weirdo and spookier the better.

I consider the resulting recordings, first the "in the box" recorded demos with electronic drums, and later the full studio sessions produced by Merle Chornuk (featuring drummer David Berger and bass player Drew Glaskin) to be some of the most evocative guitar work I've ever put to tape. At the time Skywriter was being shopped around extensively to record labels and doing tons of showcases and David Doobinin asked me to devote my full musical time to the band by quitting my other projects. It was a very difficult decision to make but seemed to make sense with the attention that Skywriter was getting. But leaving Red Eye Flight has always been one of my real musical regrets.
