SPB premiere: "Still Thinking Of You" by Wish Granters

Wish Granters - s/t

Today we’re debuting a brand new song by Wish Granters, a group featuring Mike Watt, Jamie Morrison, Vince Meghrouni, and Mike "Jimmy" Felix. Combined, those names have played with the likes of minutemen, firehose, Toys That Kill, Pale Angels, Atomic Sherpas, and a whole lot more.


The collaborative project releases its debut next month on Nov. 15, a self-titled 5-song EP that releases jointly on Water Under the Bridge Records and Recess Records (both based in San Pedro, CA).
 
SPB is excited to share a first taste of the record, the song "Still Thinking Of You."


 


The record began when Watt approached Morrison about doing a project together. Morrison worked out some ideas with Page Angels' bandmate Reza Mireshan in Wales. Then, as Morrison explains:



Once I got to the States, Jimmy and I went through the songs a few times so he could get familiar with Reza’s ideas and work in his own. Next up was a rehearsal with Vince at his home in Echo Park, CA which is more like a music/art museum. Vince had already written his parts on the sax and harmonica for all the songs. I was blown away by this guy. He added so much depth to my simple ideas and really transformed the feel of it all. What a character, what a musician! Thank you, Vince. We spent a weekend at Casa Hanzo studio in San Pedro, CA in February 2018 with Pete Mazich at the helm. This was the first time the four of us had gotten together to go over the music. We restructured some parts to compliment the new dynamics. Getting this far without a bass line for Jimmy to follow caused some rhythmic adjustments, once Watt started cooking up his parts. Watt was another huge addition to the depth of what once sounded and seemed like simple songs to me, back in Swansea.

1. Still Thinking of You
