SPLIT SINGLE – AMPLIFICADO
Long before he was the bass player in Bob Mould‘s band, Jason Narducy performed in the Chicago punk band Verboten; a band that would inspire Dave Grohl to pursue music (as detailed in the Foo Fighters documentary, Sonic Highways.)
Many years later, Narducy would release two solid albums as the leader of Verbow in 1997 & 2000, and continued that consistency with two albums from his solo project Split Single in 2014 & 2016. We have now been graced with album number three from Split Single, entitled Amplificado. Enjoy.
