Společně strávenej čas, malý triumfy i kolosální průsery – to všechno dává Svatejm Trojicím sílu čelit celýmu světu. Peleton navíc zdobí nenápadná tvrdohlavost, se kterou proměňujou zdánlivý fosilie 90. let na žhnoucí magma neustále inspirujícího odkazu. Není tam ani gram pochybností navíc.
Jsme na vaší straně!" __________ *PELOTON: (Pell-a-Tawn) (From French, literally meaning ball and related to the English word Platoon), the large main group in a road bicycle race. Riders in a group save energy by riding close (drafting or slipstreaming) near (particularly behind) other riders. Like birds flying in formation, each rider makes slight adjustments in response to the riders around them (particularly the one in front of each), the Peloton travels as an integrated unit. Converging upon San Francisco during various times, from places as far away as Japan, Texas and Detroit, the members of Peloton would all eventually meet and not think of playing music together for quite a while. Brian Jackson moved to San Francisco in the fall of 1999, expecting to be able to form a band quickly from what he had heard and naively assumed was a thriving live music scene. Quickly disappointed, he'd have to be content writing his own brand of melodic songs, laced with bitter-sweet lyrics, in a room in the Upper Haight, playing only to his audience of pedestrians on the street below. Miyako Ueki had lived in San Francisco a while longer and was just happy doing her artwork.
She had studied piano as a child, but hadn't bothered since. After she and Brian had met, she discovered she hadn't lost the talent and possessed a natural ability to compose beautiful, complex songs. It wasn't until the spring of 2003 that Miyako and Brian would begin working on music together. There were sparks from the very first notes. They began crafting a sound that interwove acoustic and fuzz-washed guitars with alluring piano melodies and sonic organs.
Juxtaposing it all with hypnotic ryhthms and heartfelt lyrics in both English and Japanese, they knew they had something unique and potent. After demoing four songs at home they decided to find the missing pieces. A somewhat frustrating year of playing with various people would pass and they found themselves still a duo and a drum machine, but were unrelenting in their determination to make it come together. Brian had a multi-instrumentalist childhood friend, Dustin Robinson, who had moved to San Francisco in September of 2001. They decided to ask him to fill in on drums at rehearsals. Everything went well so he stuck around providing the back-beat, background vocals and contributing other instruments during recording sessions. William Taylor had known the other three almost since they had first moved to town.
He had played bass in college but hadn't given it much consideration since. He had however always remained an avid listener of the same indie, pop, shoegaze and rock bands that the other members had a taste for. It was only on a dare that he came to play with the others for the first time. They began rehearsing religiously several times a week until they were ready to record their first EP. They entered Tiny Telephone Studios in February 2005 for the first time.
The self-titled six song EP was recorded over seven days between February and September. A private party at the historic Fillmore West was Peloton's first show; surely a good sign of things to come. It was then that they were joined by friend, musician and sound engineer, David Cuetter on guitar and keyboards. Since then they've been playing venues in and around San Francisco and receiving a very warm response. They will begin recording their first full-length LP in the fall of 2006.
