Skilled percussionist and jam scene regular Mike Dillion has kept busy in self-isolation, avoiding COVID-19 by recording three complete albums – Shoot The Moon, Suitcase Man and 1918 – all available starting March 12.
According to Dillon, each installment of the trilogy showcases a different side of his music: Shoot The Moon is brimming with politically-minded “Punkadelic-Funk-Psych,” Suitcase Man contains “strikingly honest lyricism and minimalist arrangements,” and 1918 tackles the pandemic head-on, as Dillon explains, “The parallels between 1918 and 2020 are immense. We just have fancier toys, but the tunnel vision and mammalian tendencies are the same if not greater.”
All three releases will be available on March 12 via streaming platforms and on vinyl from The Royal Potato Family.
