CLASSIC SOUNDTRACKS VOL. 1 RECORD RELEASE SHOW & SCREENING
SPINDRIFT, California’s psychedelic spaghetti western pioneers, have built their career on American mythology and cinematic drama. Appropriating the legacy of Ennio Morricone, The Sons of The Pioneers, and Johnny Western, they make it their own with flavors of The Doors, Joe Meek, and Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra.
The band’s defining moment was singer Kirpatrick Thomas’s 2001 cross-country odyssey as he transplanted from Newark, Delaware to Los Angeles: exploring the west in a furious, music-filled rocket blast, like Lewis and Clark led by Hunter S. Thompson, fueled by the blaring soundtrack to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. When he finally touched down in his new home, he drew from the talent that he found in LA’s psychedelic rock scene to form a new incarnation of the band that would share his vision of a new style of western music.
