5/25/17: Morphine

Morphine_Live

Last week my special feature on the Fuzz Factory was the one and only Morphine. A three piece band from Boston led by vocalist/bass player, Mark Sandman. I was fortunate to have seen Morphine in concert five times way back in the 1990’s. Mark Sandman tragically died of a heart attack mid-performance in 1999. In case you’re not familiar, Morphine featured drums, saxophone and bass guitar. That might not seem like much but it was so much more than the sum of it’s parts. Morphine’s sound was low and thick. In my not so humble opinion, Morphine was the greatest rock & roll band without a guitar that ever was! The feature also included Treat Her Right, a band led by Mark Sandman before he formed Morphine. I also played a song from Twinemen, a band featuring the surviving members of Morphine.

No particular reason to feature Morphine this week. Perhaps because it’s the end of the school year and I’m in search of a cure for pain.
