Indie supergroup Eyes Adrift offers a dream fusion of Meat Puppets, Nirvana and Sublime

"You think to yourself, you know . . . okay, what is this? What's the point here? Why this thing, at this time? Well, the point is that the collision has always been there. We became a band because we are a band. That's why. It's the reason why you have to get the Boredoms on a Nirvana/Meat Puppets/Boredoms tour. It's the reason why [artist] Mark Ryden paints pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio and Abraham Lincoln. It's all part of the same trip.

"This sounds like someone's fucking stoner daydream," he concludes, "but we pulled it off. We just started talking about this back in October. And it's beyond an idea at this point; we went with it and we've become indebted to it already.

"It's a weird thing," says the beautifully gifted guitarist, "like music always is. People like us need it."
