A friend introduced me to Songs: Ohia and I listened to Hecla and Griper over and over again. I liked the way Jason Molina sang and played, every note so, last chance. I had a writing teacher who used to say, “If it’s not worth your life, skip it.” I thought of these songs in that way. There seemed to be nothing trivial in what he was doing.
Declarer from Hecla and Griper
Performed and recorded by the Verms
The Verms are from San Francisco, and have one batch of songs out on Burst and Bloom and another possible EP floating around virtually.
