Drummer Dusty Payette, bassist Al Beaman, and guitarist Phil Tharp recorded “Toledo Will,” courtesy of Vanishing Zenith Records, at Watchman Studios in Lockport — where the majority of the Flour City’s heavy bands go — with co-producer Doug White at the wheel with the band. They maintain attitude over three songs: a loosely executed “Big Legged Woman,” with its lyrical nod to Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”; “Always Trouble Me,” with its trippy guitar; and “Must Learn To Ghost,” a sludgy serving of straight-up punk rock.
Want more? This spring, Zero Gravity anticipates the release of a full-length album, “Fantastic Disaster,” which will include the three songs from “Toledo Will.”
