Lazy Magnet


well, no point really in trying to be coy or mysterious... recognized as the only means of avoiding suicide and redirecting a compulsive/addiction prone personality away from abject alcoholism [at least for a few years] lazy magnet has enjoyed 13 years of solo recording and writing, eschewing most other life responsibilities opting instead for a continual bask in the glow that surrounds knowing that you made something only you could do and having it come out exactly the way you wanted.

well, no point really in trying to be coy or mysterious... recognized as the only means of avoiding suicide and redirecting a compulsive/addiction prone personality away from abject alcoholism [at least for a few years] lazy magnet has enjoyed 13 years of solo recording and writing, eschewing most other life responsibilities opting instead for a continual bask in the glow that surrounds knowing that you made something only you could do and having it come out exactly the way you wanted. after 23 odd self-released albums passed out in minuscule editions to friends and fellow members of the late 90s early 00s american sub-underground jeremy harris was found washing dishes at julians restaurant in providence rhode island where manager brian oakley received a copy of the lazy magnet 94-04 5 cdr hand made boxed set. this collection included over 500 songs harris had made between the ages of 16 and 26. brian offered to release future lazy magnet albums if jeremy was down.

his reply: "totally". three years later harris finally finished his first full length for corleone records: "he sought for that magic by which all the glory and glamor of mystic chivalry were made to shine - or - is music even good?" the former half being a quotation from arthur machens the hill of dreams, the latter half being a question doomed people ask themselves in the throes of mind crippling despair. work on the next album has already begun. says harris: "in the beginning lazy magnet WAS me. i was lazy magnet.. then it was more of a project, then a band. now i think of it more as a house...

you cant get evicted from your own head. lazy magnet is the street i live on.. folks are now invited to come and hang out on it." while touring the united states in 2003 with a simple set up of guitar/rhythm unit harris finally grew tired of playing by himself. in the process of recording this latest record several guest musicians were asked to learn and record parts for certain songs. it stood to reason that when it came time to play a show folks who had guested on the record could perform their parts live.

this is finally how the project became a band and now exists as a loose experimental recording/performance collective... in the past 10 years providence has suffered from the loss of several [all?] diy performance/live/work spaces.. some with a higher profile than others but all adding to the excitement and inspired creative output of their participant's lives. it'd be impossible to quantify the loss to human cultural advancement suffered as a result of the current condo-ization of america... except to say that at the very least it is terribly significant. harris has no problem acknowledging that the extension of lazy magnet from a simple solo project to a freeform collective is a conscious form of resistance to this shit lifestyle.
