remember…

jimmy gnecco of ours & i

over seven years ago in providence, rhode island, this picture was taken by my friend erin caruso. at the time, erin and i didn’t even know one another; however like synchronicity, everytime we ran into one another at an ours show, we’d happily smile and say hello like we had known each other for years.

after this one particular show, some fans were hanging outside of ours tour bus and i was lucky enough to enjoy the moment. a boy had asked jimmy if he could play the song meet me in the tower because it wasn’t on that night’s setlist, and we all were able to appreciate a very special impromptu acoustic session. 

a few months later, erin kindly surprised me with this black & white picture and to this day, it still takes me back to that exact moment of closing my eyes, feeling completely content and peaceful.

.see ours live.

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    That’s a great photo, and it’s so cool to see people still supporting Ours after all these years. I had the privilege of interviewing Jimmy after the recent 2 night Chicago stand, and he didn’t disappoint. If you’re interested, check it out at: http://www.thescenestar.com.

    This is a great site (and pretty too!), and I only wish I’d discovered it sooner because I’d love to have some of the black sessions you’ve previously posted!!! Just stunning stuff!

    I always thought that Zam and Dave were the real talents in that band, which is why the Teenbeaters were better.
