Review: Haight-Ashbury - Haight-Ashbury 2: The Ashburys
Haight-Ashbury is Kristy, Scott and Jennifer. Before they formed the band, Scott was a guitarist would recently traveled to San Francisco. He was a fan of early Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead and The Jesus and Mary Chain. His sister Kristy, and her friend Jennifer, were vocalists in several previous bands. When their backing musicians failed to show up one night, Scott filled in. The gig was well-received, and a new band sprang to life.
The second official video is for album track "She's So Groovy '86" --
Haight-Ashbury 2: The Ashburys reveals a band gaining maturity, sharpening its focus and paying increased attention to the craft of each song. I think their future is bright.
Haight-Ashbury is touring Europe for the next few months in support of the album. There are no North American stops.
