Residing somewhere between the instrumental work of Pell Mell, Brian Eno and Giant Sand, 'Music for Driving and Film, vol 2' is a cycle of soundtracks that transports the listener to a very familiar place. You’ve been here before, roaring down a stretch of highway, shifting gears, going from full throttle to a downhill coast, taking in saturated colors, blurring lines, slowing but never stopping. You awake from the dream in front of a giant silver screen that takes you back again.
It features the compositions and guitar playing of the Reverend Screaming Fingers, supported by a stellar cast including Pat Spurgeon (Rogue Wave), Wil Hendricks (Edith Frost), Laurie Amat (The Residents), Jonathan Segel (Camper Van Beethoven), Jenya Chernoff (Mummble & Peg), Suki O’Kane (She Mob), John Hanes, (Chrome), Valerie Kuehne, Steve Lucky and others.
The Reverend Screaming Fingers (aka Lucio Menegon) is a guitarist, composer and sonic artist. His music is sometimes based in free improvisation – intense, ethereal, out there – and sometimes song-based – composed, melodic, traditional. With general disregard for genre, Lucio freely mingles angular riffs, sheer noise and small sounds to creatively combine the interesting and appropriate. He lives for the gig be it stage or studio, likes to play in bands that write, sweat, fight, sink or swim together and absolutely loves to tour. He has performed all over the globe as a solo artist, band member and in collaboration with artists such as Amy DeNio, David Grollman, Emily Hay, Brad Dutz, Nick Millevoi, Colin Fisher, Steve Norton, John Shiurba, Moe! Staiano, Kim Boekbinder, Ross Hammond, Danielle French, Richard Lainhart, Gunnar Madsen, Glenn Branca and Rhys Chatham.
