Before he was known as the drummer/octopus of Don Caballero, Damon Che had a one-man project called Thee Speaking Canaries. At the beginning of the 90s, before he recorded his debut record “The Joy of Wine,” Damon Che composed and performed an entire record’s worth of material. Now, twenty four years later, we get to enjoy the fruits of his labor.
Playing all instruments and with a creative zeal that’s part Sonic Youth and part Van Halen, “Platter Base” serves as an essential release for fans of the Canaries, Don Caballero or just plain guitar histrionics. Get in on it now, because it won’t ever be reissued.
