CounterclarkwiseTea Leaf/Molitz/ALO Side Project

OPEN WEEPING, METAL AND MORE!

Ladies and Gentlemen, step right up. Counterclarkwise has arrived. Counterclarkwise features Tea Leaf Green guitar man Josh Clark, bassist Steve Adams of ALO, keyboardist Steve Molitz of Particle & Phil & Friends, and drummer Scott Rager of Tea Leaf Green.

Counterclarkwise will be performing never before heard Josh Clark originals at San Francisco's Connecticut Yankee on Friday, Feb. 20th. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. This is the group's debut performance.

Throw back ten to thirty beers and listen to Clark tackle heavy subjects such as flatulence on an airplane and his disdain for blinking lights. Gasp at the mind-boggling virtuosity of Counterclarkwise as they weave webs of improvised musical delight. Cry openly while Counterclarkwise soothes your wounded soul with whispering melodies and cozy little mind hugs.

Big Light's Fred Torphy to open the show.

you're right, this does sound good, especially for ten bucks but that last paragraph is one of the worst pieces of writing jambase has put up yet, still I'd go if I were from the area

Are you serious phishbase??? Are you not familiar with Reed Mathis (JFJO, SKB, and MANY other projects he's associated with..) I suppose you want Fish, Gordo, and Page to fill in...

I quite enjoyed the last paragraph. Gasp at the mind-boggling virtuosity of Counterclarkwise as they weave webs of improvised musical delight. Cry openly while Counterclarkwise soothes your wounded soul with whispering melodies and cozy little mind hugs. Are you kidding me. That is pure genius. If nothing else, funny. Lighten up. For those of you Josh bashers, I saw him front row a month ago and he tore it up.

I am sorry but I have absolutely zero respect for anybody who says TLG features "bad" or "lame" musicians. All four of them are extremely amazing musicians. God so much hate on these boards, this will be my last jambase post until further notice

never HEAR THE INNER PING.

Josh Clark has stared at the ground every time i've seen tea leaf. he's also looked complete drunk out of his mind and his playing reflected it...

Reed, if you're reading this, please go back to JFJO. You made that band incredible, and your doing nothing in Tea Leaf (except for maybe getting more play).

I'm not trying to be a hater, and im sorry if anyone is perceiving my comments in such a way, im just curious what the TLG appeal is?

Can anyone tell me why they like TLG? (and i say that with all sincerity, because i would genuinely like to know). I just dont get it

Sounds pretty neat to me. Why are we commenting on someone's logo? Well here goes, I like the Cubs, they're a classic baseball team. I quite like Andre Dawson's forehead as well. J-Bizzle has wrote some pretty funny stuff in the past, BUT this lineup sounds fairly cool. Would have to hear it but the parts seem fair. I was def more excited bout Gene Ween band but that seems to be on hold.

And I found the last paragraph to be comical. I enjoy laughing, pizza, beer, cozy mind hugs, etc

Firstly TLG are good musicians, I just don't think they play any good songs. Anyone who has seen Buckethead solo will understand what I mean. Also, isn't that Rich Pryor (Brewster's Millions) in J-biz's sig? If so it rocks regardless of ballcap. Third, Steve Moltz is the Jesus of Keyboarding, I love when him and Phil take the Friends into space.

I've been to an Op Ivy show... just like crappy American lager it takes quite a few beers before it goes down smooth. Still, a guy's gotta skank every now and again right?

Danwon, I like TLG because they play original ROCK.

It does not sound like some other band. I cannot perceive any kind of

"copycat rock notes". Original, funky, psychedelic, ripping and energetic, and rootsy.

Trevors voice can grow on you.

I can say, the first sets can be kinda boring, but they in the 5 times I have seen them bring the heat in the second set and can really keep a room moving.

Give them some more chances, Hell I had to see Pgroove 5 times before I was impressed.

I read somewhere that if you listen to too much TLG you become a homosexual, right miles?
