When I was in high school, I spent countless hours playing guitar, writing songs, rehearsing, and performing with my best friends, Nate Harris and Sean Burton, in our band: Moondog. It was really fun, and we took our music very seriously, even the pretentious Velvet Underground covers we played at every rehearsal.
Just after high school graduation, we headed to the studio and recorded as many songs as we could afford to, a paltry four. We released an EP on cassette (we couldn’t afford a CD press at the time) called “Unleashed.” I wish I still had the album art!
