FTC: Sound Team
I will begin my From the Closet today by saying that you should check out the wikipedia page about Austin band Sound Team if you don’t know their history. It’s a long story about a band that showed heaps of promise before breaking up amongst turmoil in the band and dissatisfaction with their label. Like I said, check our their wikipedia page and read up. Today I am bringing you a song from Sound Team’s one and only major label LP Movie Monster. Despite what some people may say, I actually enjoyed that record when it came out and still spin it every once and awhile. This jam “Born to Please” serves as an introduction to that LP right after a short “intro” type track. I highly recommend picking that one up at your local record store. Of course the former members of Sound Team are still making waves in the local scene so it’s not like all is lost for you fans of the sound. Bill Baird and Sam Sanford currently jams in Sunset, Matt Oliver and Jordan Johns currently run TV Torso, and Will Patterson has struck out on his own as Sleep Good. Maybe one day we can get them all back together again for a lil reunion?[audio: https://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/07-Born-to-Please.mp3]
