John Dwyer Unearths The Herms

hermspromophoto_101756Being John Dwyer has to be pretty sweet.  Not only does he get to front Thee Oh Sees, but he gets to run Castle Face Records too.  A great band and a great label? Sweet gig bro.  It’s also allowed him some time to really dig deep into his local or nearby history, as is the case with Berkley band The Herms.  He’s taken some early demos and 8-track recordings from the group and compiled them into the Drop Out Vol. 1 LP.  This is the first take on this band for many of us, and this swaggering bit of rock n’ roll is enough to see exactly why John took on the project.  It’s rock like this that I can get behind.
