He'd say inconsistent where we'd say experimental. He'd say distracted, not inquisitive. Not artistic, but erratic. Not waving but drowning. But, you'd forgive the boy for an occasional temperament that makes Nick Drake appear eruptively ecstatic.

Not exactly corrupted by the lust for a cheap buck he remains broke but perhaps at least, with his soul intact.

ASG is a small band with a sound that’s big in so many ways. The trio formed following the break-up of local Wrigthsville Beach punk band the Urethra Franklins when Andy Ellis (bass) and Scott Key (drums) teamed up with guitarist Jason Shi.
