Eric Gould’s Extracurricular Activities
Though Particle has been off the road for most of 2008, bassist Eric Gould has remained busy. As previously reported, after relocating to Kansas City, MO Gould formed Big Man’s Gold with local guitarist/songwriter Lucas Bingham and longtime friend and drummer Andy Manz. The trio has quickly made a name for itself around Kansas City, even hosting a Thursday residency at The Canoe Club in Goulds Lake Lotawana community. Gould also appeared on Bingham’s new solo album, Clean Sheets, and has been clocking in time with the improvisational electronic duo, Organic Proof, which features keyboardist John Brewer and drummer/percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Brandon Draper.
Before Particle gears up for a few December dates, Gould and guitarist Brian Jordan will perform with Organic Proof at Denvers Cervantes on December 5 and 6. Cervantes collaborative weekend of music will also feature EOTO, Steve Kimock and Jamie Janover. Meanwhile, Big Mans Gold will return to Lake Lotawana, MOs Canoe Club this Thursday.
