Interview by Paul Salfen
Supergroup, Spray Allen; Eric Wilson (Sublime), Wade Youman (Unwritten Law), Daniel Lonner (Late Night Episode), and Eric Sherman (Late Night Episode), are thrilled to release their debut single “Stay Clean” that is out now along with the music video.
Lonner says “’Stay Clean’ is a dose of the ’90s – when I was born and when Wilson & Wade were making themselves heard around the world. It’s also a reminder to clean your fucking room!!! The Video features legendary guitarist/producer Paul Leary, the lead guitar and occasional lead vocals for Butthole Surfers and Bam Margera from Jackass. The artwork’s photo was shot by iconic photographer icon Elliott Erwitt, responsible for Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti” cover. The song features production from Stu Brooks (Dub Trio, Danny Elfman) & Gabrial McNair (No Doubt).
From the ashes of 2020’s chaos comes a new awareness of ourselves, and the birth of an unstoppable force that goes by the name Spray Allen; a band that could only be described as supernatural desert-borne peyote rock. This four-piece musical powerhouse are charging straight out of the gates with a debut self-titled double album, showing the world that they mean business in the biggest way possible. The album was recorded and mixed at Sonic Ranch in Texas, with a legendary production team made up of Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers) and Stu Brooks (Dub Trio), and a little help with keys and horns from the one and only Gabrial McNair (No Doubt). Together they have delivered a monstrous 26 song behemoth destined to raise the consciousness of both the old weary traveler and the hybrid youth of today. In a nutshell, this band is part supergroup, part modern day Heaven’s Gate Cult, minus the human sacrifice and group suicide, although “Human sacrifice isn’t off the cards completely” says Youman, “we just haven’t found it to be necessary… yet. For now, all we need is love, wine, and each other.”
