Guest Appearances by: Dave Gilmet, Kristin Gilmet, and Molly Grace.
Not too often do City Scenes have collaboration projects whereas the best of the area join forces
from their respective regular bands to create a project like this. This Project is Fronted by Dollar Canon Lead Singer, Guitarist,
Bassist, and Organ George Skaros along with Dollar Canon Drummer Anthony Armstrong. Roger Bryan, Ray Fulton and J. Scott Mcintosh
make up this Super band known as Short Story Record Co. Special Appearances include that of Kristin and Dave Gilmet and Molly
Grace. Singer Songwriter George Skaros might very well be a musical genius pulling together thoughts and ideas in song that
are both familiar and heartfelt to the listener. The only other songwriters that have been able to pull off this comfort and
brilliance in my eyes are Hayden and Jeff Tweedy. The only bad thing I can say about these guys is like the first time you
find out that Santa Claus isn’t real. What I mean is it only seems that this super band makes a one or two appearances
a year so they aren’t a real touring band. That in itself is quite the tragedy and a great loss to one of the better
musical scenes there is in Buffalo Ny. With that said this short EP captures the elegance and charm of the band as well as
the masterful attention to detail that makes a song stand out amongst all others. Skaros’ Singing/songwriting coupled
with the dynamic drum style of Anthony Armstrong make’s this an album that you must check out. Armstrong could very
well be the best drummer that I have ever seen live and I have definitely seen my share. He seems to know no bounds as to
what can be accomplished with the drums. Arms a blur with unique, fresh and mostly amazingly difficult beats sets them apart
from the average band by leaps and bounds. Roger, Ray and Joey flesh out the songs and add their own brilliance to a great
sound and a great EP. Now if we had a full length we would be talking money.
