Ep 2 - Song 4: "03" by Tires

The fourth member of my "Board of Trustees" is Andrew Smith. If you're any part of the central Iowa music scene, the chances are you've seen this raven-haired, bespectacled middle-age man. He attends at least 3 shows a week of various genres. And was in fact, chosen as the first recepient of The Greater Des Moines Music Coalition's (DMMC) Music Fan of the Year Award at last year's Backstage Ball.

Andrew Smith is not a musician though. So I just let him choose a track to feature on this podcast. And he chose "03" by Tires.

"Electronic rock band Tires plays primarily instrumental music, with an emphasis on groove and a layered palette (including the occasional electric drill on guitar). The huge sound produced is accomplished by just two people: Phil Young on guitar and electronic sound manipulations, and Jordan Mayland on drums and synthesizers. The two are in a virtual “who’s who” of Iowa bands, including The Wheelers, The Volcano Boys, The Mantis Pincers, Nuclear Rodeo, and many others."

- Bryon Dudley for The Greater Des Moines Music Coalition (http://www.desmoinesmc.com/category/local-news/gdp/page/7/)

Lineup:
Phil Young - keys, guitar, samples
Jordan Mayland - keys, guitar, drums
Chris Marshall - guitar, drums
Cory Wendell - bass, percussion
sometimes Joryn Brown - drums, keys
