Eric Slick = Behemoth
So tonight is your last chance to catch Project Object on tour - they end their winter swing tonight at Revolution Hall in Troy, New York and if you are anywhere in the area, what can I say...THEY ARE AMAZING! GO SEE THEM!
In the meantime, here's a couple of reviews from recent shows:
From the Ween Forum Board:
"Went to the Lancaster, Pa show last night. Pretty good crowd for a Wednesday in the middle of nowhere. Great show as always except not one song from Joe's Garage which is what I really wanted. Ike IS Joe for Gods sake.
He has a great band behind him this tour. Seahag was on as usual but Eric Slick stole the show for me. That fucker can play and its great to see someone so young digging the Zappa stuff."
"Eric Slick is a behemoth. I have not seen someone dominate an instrument like that since Mike Watt. I had to peridocially scoop up and reaply my face because it kept getting melted off."
"I was looking at some of the pictures and I definitely see Eric Slick, that cute little drummer hanging around- Is he playing with Chris H?
Fucking 19 year old virtuoso-type drummer mother fuckers."
"Saw them last night in VT, amazing as usual. BTW, who the fuck is that new drummer? he's like 14, and he's amazing.
I wish it was the Sixties, I wish we could be happy..."
"Eric Slick. School of Rock Grad. Plays in Adrian Belews band and Harford's Band of Changes too. Supposedly distantly related to Grace."
From the Zappateers Forum Board
"Thanks again. This was a great show. Slick and Seahag blew me away.
So yep, Eric's a behemoth alright.
Behemoth: A creature or thing of monstrous power
Hahahahaha - that's going to be my new nickname for my son.
Yo, Behemoth, see you tomorrow. Any special dinner requests? Have I mentioned I miss you?
Well, at least I get to see the behemoth for a few days before he takes off for California. Can't wait to tell you about that next week. Oh.My.God.
