Geezer Lake


North Carolina-based Geezer Lake straddled several genres, eschewed traditional song arrangements, and melded together elements of pop, rock, jazz, post-hardcore, metal, film scores, avant-garde, noise, sound-collage, and structured improvisation. Perhaps one of the most striking differences between Geezer Lake and other indie-rock acts was their use of reverb-drenched horns, played through amplifiers, adding an etherial aura to the typical guitar/bass/drum configuration.

North Carolina-based Geezer Lake straddled several genres, eschewed traditional song arrangements, and melded together elements of pop, rock, jazz, post-hardcore, metal, film scores, avant-garde, noise, sound-collage, and structured improvisation. Perhaps one of the most striking differences between Geezer Lake and other indie-rock acts was their use of reverb-drenched horns, played through amplifiers, adding an etherial aura to the typical guitar/bass/drum configuration. The band formed in the late 80s in Greensboro and was comprised of Harrison Cannon (bass, vocals), Eric Shepherd (guitar), Scott Irving (drums), Chris Clodfelter (guitar, trumpet, vocals), and, on the last full-length release, Jim Clodfelter (guitar, trumpet, trombone, vocals). Although Geezer Lake never reached the level of popularity of many of their peers who emerged from the 90s North Carolina indie-rock scene, they were hailed by critics in numerous national publications, and were taken under wing by a diverse group of nationally known acts such as Polvo, Ben Folds, Archers of Loaf, and Alice Donut). Several Geezer Lake members also recorded as part of Barry Black, the first solo outing from Eric Bachman (Archers of Loaf, Crooked Fingers, Neko Case). Geezer Lake dissolved soon after the 1997 full-length release, "King Frost Parade", as members moved to various parts of the country to pursue other endeavors, but reunited in 2000 for a brief East Coast tour.
