“Brash Bandages” is the latest song from Morgan Y. Evans’ ongoing musical endeavor Walking Bombs, out March 27.
This is the start of a new chapter for the solo and collaborative project, a fun, Guns ‘N’ Roses-influenced punk song featuring Taraka Larson (ex-Prince Rama) and Sean Paul Pillsworth (Nightmares For A Week, Anadivine) and Evans.
“The song was a meditation on if it was possible to write a tune inspired by GnR but about how to survive in life and make healthier choices for yourself emotionally, spiritually, and physically,” Evans says. “We jokingly were calling it “Appetite For Kombucha.” It still rocks, though, and was super fun to crank out before I get full-bore working on my next album.”
“Brash Bandages” was recorded in one, ten-hour, positive session at Nada Recording in Montgomery, NY who have many fine credits including Shai Hulud, My Chemical Romance, Polar Bear Club, All Out War, and more.
“Nada was a terrific environment to track, and I couldn’t have asked for better talent attached,” Evans says. “I have wanted to record at owner John Naclerio’s place for years, and Sean Paul has engineered me before on parts of my first Walking Bombs album. He is genuinely nice and fun to create with and a tremendous musician as well as my homie for life.
“As for Taraka Larson, she is really a musical genius and kind of just a genius in general. If you haven’t read her poetry or writing on time, art, and progression, get on that, cuz it will surely enlighten. Prince Rama was one of the most exciting, important, and genre-straddling, mind-opening bands, and her solo stuff is going to be so cool. Really glad we got to manifest this song in the space between.”
