FRIDAY REWIND Wk.17: "Half Polyester Protection" by The Mormons

On February 2, 2018, I launched a new series called, "Friday Rewind," where I performed a cover of a song I either recorded and/or played live at some point in my drumming career. Every week for 25 weeks straight, I released a blast from the past. From totally obscure musical acts, to some a few of you might've actually heard.

The playlist predates this current website, so I thought I would repost these here so there's an easy way for viewers to check it out. I tried to release the videos in chronological order but some bands overlapped others, and when I started I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to execute the whole thing, so some of the videos have no particular order to them.

Welcome back to my review of "Friday Rewind," a series where I released a video each week chronicling my playing days as a working drummer. This week features the song, "Half Polyester Protection" by The Mormons.

As with the last two week's of Friday Rewind, when I moved back from Houston, TX., I was in a bad place. No money, no job, no car, no place to live. I moved back into my mom's, put my head down, and went to work. On myself.

As soon as I had covered the basics, I reached out to old friends so that I could start playing music again, and yet another of my friend's to welcome me with open arms was, Jimmy Castillo, who played bass in The Mormons. Their drummer and manager at the time, Joey Welcher (who I would grow to have a very strong relationship with later on), stepped down to focus more on managing the band. So, they needed a drummer just as I had gotten back on my feet. As a drummer, and in life, it seemed, my timing was pretty good.

Here is one of my favorite songs from them. I hope you enjoy it!
