Some “bloody” good news you can really “sink your teeth into”… an instrumental version of The Quick Hellos song “Growing Up Too Slow” will play, albeit very quietly, on the HBO show True Blood – episode 510 “Gone Gone Gone.”
The scene is described as: Steve is on the computer in the back room at Merlotte’s. Watch for it on Aug 12!
Here’s the full version below, if you’d care to have a listen (or buy!):
I’ve always been a fan of Kevin Bronson’s writing – he is the rare music journalist who still goes to every show, knows everything about the LA music scene, and still gives a damn.
Here’s his show preview with a little interview mixed in:
Dan Crane has carved out pretty enviable stage personas as Jean-Luc Retard in the cheeky fake-French band Nous Non Plus and as air guitar legend Björn Türoque. But in his newest endeavor, the Quick Hellos, he plays non other than Dan Crane, a guy who writes downright pretty songs.
We finished mixing yesterday and our first track is ready for public debut. Recording and mixing was done by the completely excellent Mark Rains at Station House Studio in Echo Park.
