When I first started Popp Over America, I was certain I was going to be doing the TV show and the tour as a solo act. But in the words of the greek philosopher Heraclitus, “The only thing that is constant is change.” My friend of many years Shaugn O’Donnell joined me for my birthday show back in May at Shrine and we had such a good time we decided to become an acoustic duo. We have played more than a few gigs under the moniker Popp Over America, but after our last show out in Stony Brook at the Velvet Lounge, that name didn’t feel right. We are a unit now so we needed a new name.
After a volley of emails between Tylor Durand (graphic artist and former bandmate), Shaugn, and myself, we settled on the name Lost Axis. Tylor whipped up seemingly infinite renditions of graphic ideas and after a bucket of us whining and Tylor refining, we arrived at the above logo. Some will say it’s too metal. Some will say it’s too punk. We say good.
Pilot Editing Progress:
I am still working diligently on logging the footage for the pilot episode. Uladzimir Taukachou, the cinematographer for the pilot shoot, has been helping me greatly by syncing all the cameras and sound. At this point I don’t think I can fit all of what I want to keep into just one episode. I will know more as I move along in the process but this is an epic task. There is a story to tell and I don’t want to leave out any important detail. I hope to have some clips up soon. Stay tuned!
