"After a solid year of challenging audiences and themselves with visceral
and equally almost mythological live performances around Detroit, opening
the doors to their roving Sparklewood Friendship Society Club wherever
they played like a sideshow attraction or sonic church, the band hunkered
down in the studio with KNERD.com founder Rob Shelby for their first
official offering to the public.
The band, very aware of the impact we have on each other and our
surroundings, decided the physical copies would be hand stamped on
recycled paper with a homemade wildflower seeded paper insert.
Ever the collaborators and sharers of knowledge esoteric and of the
common man, Macrame Tiger had been on the radar of Loco Gnosis having
shared stages, meals, flasks and otherwise for some time. Loco's Primary
Curator Jeff Howitt thought that the band should release the album
themselves as Sparklewood had pulled in faces from the forest who had not
found the light or who were afraid to dance with the shadows of life.
Further speculations revealed a common ground the musicians shared and as
each movement of peoples stands on their own in name and function yet another
integration of resources and purpose has merged both camps into a wilder
frontier than the one they just wandered in from.
Loco Gnosis started almost 5 years ago with a handful of DIY'ers and each
new participant over the years has almost naturally appeared when they
have found themselves as outlaw and sheriff to their muse, be it applied
to organizing festival or band, writing for recording or performance or
operating culturally in benefit or pleasure.
We are happy to support Macrame Tiger and have them working with Loco
Gnosis and also to be brothers and sisters of the Sparklewood Friendship
Society.. official self titled debut album release to be announced.."
