notes::Brad Laner to release Neighbor Singing on Hometapes

Brad Laner, best known for his bands Medicine and Electric Company, will release his first official solo album, Neighbor Singing, on the Colorado-based label Hometapes on November 6, 2007. The record was produced by Laner and Thom Monahan (Devendra, Lavender Diamond, Brightblack Morning Light) at Laner’s home in the hills of Los Angeles.

Laner’s musical career dates back to the 70s when he was playing in punk bands and somehow in 1979 got roped into playing bass live on TV with Captain and Tennille (we’re not making this up – check YouTube). His first recorded output was with the band Debt of Nature who had a track on a New Alliance (Minutemen’s label) compilation. In the 80s Laner was the drummer for the legendary Savage Republic, then in the early 90s he formed Medicine who were signed to Rick Rubin’s Def American label and Creation in the UK. In 1995 Laner formed Lusk with members of Tool, The Replicants and Failure, released one album and quickly disbanded – the same year, he began recording more electronic leaning material under the name Electric Company, and subsequently released 10 albums under that name in ten years.
