The Court & Spark

I used to be pretty good friends with these guys back when I lived in California. We initially sort of met when The Angel Assassins played in Isla Vista with a band that went on to become The Court & Spark.

The party in Isla Vista featured a keg of root beer. When the cops came to break up the party, a kid with a mohawk jumped in the police car and drove off with it. I don't know what happened to that kid, but I sure as shit salute him.

One time when they played New York they were hanging out with their friend who for some reason was roommates with Milla Jovovich, so we all ended up back there hanging out. Unfortunately she was out of town at the time so I did not get to meet her.

Scott handed me this cassette one night at Bottom Of The Hill, a while before the record actually came out. I used to listen to it all the time, and I love the handmade cover.

I haven't seen James or Scott in ages! If you know them please say hello for me!!

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, The Court & Spark.
