Only in recent months has John Zimmerman of Wet Socks brought his longstanding solo project Kewl out of hiding. For recent shows, he has assembled some of the busiest young rock musicians in Savannah.
I’m not quite sure what the future holds for Kewl, but it turns out that Zimmerman is a natural in a flamboyant act like this.
Jaime Hernandez, a sound artist with an interest in sound preservation, recorded Kewl’s entire set last week at El-Rocko Lounge at a show that also included Pink Mexico and Twisty Cats. Jaime uploaded the audio — soundcheck and all — to Soundcloud, and we’re thrilled to share the stream here. The soundcheck finishes at the 9:36 mark.
Emily Earl of Emily Earl Photography and Sulfur Studios caught some excellent images of the show, which she has graciously allowed us to share. We hope to feature more of Emily’s work in the future. A couple here with more after the jump:
