Ex-Television and Rocket from the Tombs guitarist (and frequent Matthew Sweet collaborator) Richard Lloyd's 2009 album, The Jaime Neverts Story, is his long-awaited collection of Jimi Hendrix covers recorded in early 2008.
As much a homage to Jimi as it is to Lloyd's and Hendrix's mutual friend Velvert Turner (R.I.P.), the story behind this release touches on punches thrown, tears shed and three men whose legendary guitar alchemy has shaped and continues to shape rock music ever since.
For recording Richard was joined by bassist Keith Hartel and longtime Lloyd session drummer Chris Purdy, with a special guest appearance by Television drummer Billy Ficca.
This is Lloyd’s third release for us and we’re proud to be working with one of Punk’s true godfathers.
