Jail Weddings

With the end of his post-Starvations project Fortune’s Flesh, singer/guitarist Gabriel Hart has gathered like-minded adventurers to roundout the line-up of his new outfit JAIL WEDDINGS - an updated take on the darker side of the ’60s girl group blueprint with swamp-pop leanings, all combined with mean-streak mutant torch song drama. The band will reside very happily in Los Angeles, CA until further notice.

With the end of his post-Starvations project Fortune’s Flesh, singer/guitarist Gabriel Hart has gathered like-minded adventurers to roundout the line-up of his new outfit JAIL WEDDINGS - an updated take on the darker side of the ’60s girl group blueprint with swamp-pop leanings, all combined with mean-streak mutant torch song drama. The band will reside very happily in Los Angeles, CA until further notice.

“Jail Weddings are unreal—full disclosure is that I respect Gabe Hart (Starvations/Fortune’s Flesh) a lot and here is the band he was born for. Nine-piece revue with himself and two wild ladies up front—Katya the incandescent blonde and Tina the bombshell brunette—and a band that is Phil Spector’s Wrecking Crew from X’s Los Angeles. Their good songs are as good as any good band and their best songs are an honor and a privilege: Gabe in silver tie with basso boom like Roy Orbison (!) hauling a song across his shoulder with the opener, “Somebody’s lonely . . . !” and the band (with violin and sax and keys) and the girls pop in on the exact same sha-la-la behind him. No gimmick—instead the total real deal, with Katya and Tina and Gabe all splitting solos (just like my Wailers at the Castle LP) off their righteous heartbroke big-beat big-chorus California rock & roll. ” - Chris Ziegler, The District Weekly/LA Record « hide
