Inception: San Diego, 2007


“I know it sounds lame, but I actually did come down here [to San Diego] seven years ago to follow my dreams of grandeur,” says Ambient Bob, bass player for the Vulgar Herd.

What was the dream? “To be a rock star,” he confesses. “Met a lot of great people, did a lot of great things, and it all fell through. I didn’t play the kind of music I liked then, in hopes of getting rich quick. Ended up taking a lucrative yet brief stint in the mortgage business. We all know about that one. The way I see it now is…I may as well like what I do.”

“Loud and unapologetic” is how the Vulgar Herd describe themselves, “a cross between groove, 7/8, metal, funk…” A blogger at, discussing a show at the Ken Club, called the band an “odd mixture of Pretzel Logic–era Steely Dan and Europe, of all bands.”
