Radiophonic live at Liquid Lounge
Proving that great musical chemistry can make bands rise from the dead, Radiophonic is a reincarnation of 3 Shot West, the rock trio that came together in Dallas around 2000. Added to Radiophonic is bassist Daniel Loyd, freeing longtime members Brian Aldsworth and Graham Duncan to create intricate multilayered guitar parts for the new album. Radiophonic writes passionate music that marries pop sensibilities with innovative musical leaps, with notes of Coldplay, Explosions in the Sky, Jeff Buckey and Afghan Wigs.

Anything else about you?: I like butter. I was the president of Mexico. I invented 'Fix-A-Flat'. Chicks dig me. I scored an 1200 on my SAT's but that score was revoked because of steroids use. I flunked college. I graduated college. I'm still paying for college. I wrote a novel about yuppie pyschokillers with Christian Bale in mind. I was cryogenically frozen and revived. Walt Disney is doing just fine. I'm an expert in a very small subset of 80's pop culture. In 2005 I was married. In 2006, I became a father. I'm coy, but clever.
