. . . among other things with a local rock trio by the name of Happy Birthday Secret Weapon.
Saw the gents play at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard a few months back in support of Levi Fuller's 'Ball of Wax' project and was blown away by their performance.
The image above had us laughing on account of it's remarkably sublime homage to the snarky, self-mythologizing album covers the Champs were known for.
With titles such as 'Nebula Ball Rests in a Fantasy Claw' and 'Thor is Like Immortal' or 'I am the Album Cover,' the Champs had a pretty good sense of humor much like the gentlemen of Happy Birthday Secret Weapon.
In addition to our image above, the guys helped me with a triptych concept that I'm still working hard to complete, so that I may get it up on the blog and soon-to-launch website.
In the meantime, you should go out and give their music a listen.
