Saint Pé
In 2014, after 10 years of touring the world (literally every continent but Antarctica!) in Atlanta’s legendary Black Lips as well as the critically-acclaimed Diamond Rugs, guitarist and vocalist Ian Saint Pé needed a change. As he put it, “The only thing you can’t change is time, So it was time that changed me. I loved the Black Lips, but I needed to enjoy new environments. So I got a brand new bag: Saint Pé.”

He packed up his gear and moved to Nashville, where he settled down in a log cabin formerly owned by country legend Roy Acuff. Before long, that home had also turned into a studio, and with the help of a number of Atlanta-based friends, the Album, Fixed Focus was born. It’s less a departure from the sounds of the Lips and Rugs as it is an informed continuation of them that maintains all the hooks and pop sensibilities of his previous acts, while refining them with a bit of Nashville class and a hint of the darkness that 10 years on the road imbues upon the soul.

From singalong stompers “Street Lights,” “Got The Look” and “Kiss It Goodbye” to Southern Gothic explorations like “Burning Bright” and “Carbon Maker,” Fixed Focus is a fully-formed solo debut that sounds more like an album from deep into an established career.

Recorded by Saint Pé himself, Fixed Focus was then mixed by Matt Boynton (Kurt Vile, MGMT) in New York City and mastered by Joel Hatstat in Athens, GA.

With his first record finally in that brand new bag and new songs already on the way, Saint Pé plans to spend the foreseeable future back on the road with this latest project, bringing his new sounds to plenty of familiar faces.

Residuels (solo)
Residuels (solo)
Philly’s Residuels aren’t ashamed to play big, dumb rock n’ roll. They’ve got a stripped-down, 70’s punk vibe but whip out extended improvisations without coming off like assholes… think MC5 without the speeches or the afros. In virtually no time this power-trio has played all over the continent with bands like BUZZCOCKS, THEE OH SEES, BLACK LIPS, THE SONICS, DESTRUCTION UNIT + THE SPITS and made IGGY POP a fan with their cover of STOOGES’ “I Got A Right”

“"I first met Justin Pittney (Residuels singer / guitarist) working on the Stooges music for a Sailor Jerry spot. I noticed he had a great feel for our music, and I enjoyed his company and his wit, and I still do. I think Justin is a good example of someone who is solving the puzzle of how to have fun and more as a young musician today” – IGGY POP
