Cozy Basement Rock

These days the basement is more luxe, but the rock remains the same. Ultra-loud and unapologetic. Saturday The Valiant Arms tracked some songs for their next release, all original material.

Back in the day Oswald Five-O was held together with duct tape and ashtrays. Our practice space was lined with moldy carpet and filled with broken strings and Nick's spittoons. We never recorded our practices, but were thrilled if we could book time in a studio. I'm happy to say that these days TVA enjoys the relative comfort of drywall and comfortable furniture, and the digital opportunities to record on the fly. Basement rock was never so accommodating. Having paid our punk-rock dues, we deserve it!
