Instant Groove

Incomplete Neighbor’s debut album, Suspended Electric Coma, hit the streets May 9 featuring ten original pieces of art on the cover and inside the CD sleeve. Each band member painted several canvases which were compiled together “to make something that we felt was original,” says Tyson Zamora, “and express how we felt about the album in general.” The artwork is also featured on T-shirts and bumper stickers. The rest of the band includes Brandon Dow, Clint Disharoon, and George Thornton.

How did the band come together? “Tyson spent a year in the middle of a desert in Arizona writing and recording several of his own albums,” says George. “He moved out to San Diego for the sole purpose of starting a band with Brandon. After several bass/drum combos, Brandon met George while the latter was helping a friend write and record songs for a project at Brandon’s studio, Protracks Recording. Brandon invited George to join him and Tyson, and George brought Clint along for the jam. It was instant love — two weeks later they had several of the songs that became a part of the debut album.”

And the band’s name? “We thumbed through a music-theory textbook called Tonal Harmony,” says George, “and stumbled upon this perfect description...an incomplete neighbor is a tone or note that is not a part of the chord that is sounding.”

Incomplete Neighbor plays The Beauty Bar on Saturday, June 13.

WHAT’S DISLIKABLE ABOUT PERFORMING?

Clint: “Having to smile and say ‘good show’ to the other bands you play with when you were busy cringing and trying to drink yourself deaf during their set. Also hoping those shitty bands aren’t thinking the same thing about you.”

Tyson: “Having to work the next morning.”

George: “Coming down from a manic high is always a difficult thing to deal with.”

Brandon: “When venues only let you get crappy beer with their drink tickets, regardless of the size of the crowd.”

WHAT’S IN YOUR MUSIC PLAYER?

Clint: “The Music, Welcome to the North. This album is ultra tasty, sexy rhythm section, great melodies, and hot riffs.”

George: “Belle and Sebastian, The Life Pursuit. A lot of bands get praise for being ‘Beatle-esque,’ but Belle and Sebastian sound like the good side of that influence in terms of stellar songwriting, content, and lyrical phrasing — not simply a bouncy happy-go-lucky feel that is easy for the market to swallow.”

SEXIEST SAN DIEGO PERFORMER?

Clint: “Dan Damschen of the Napoleon Complex, hands down. He has high kicks for days.”

George: “Tom Waits. Or Craig Barclift from the Powerchords.”

FAVORITE SAN DIEGO HANGOUT?

Clint: “The Chico Club [La Mesa]. I still hold the record for the most buccaneers consumed whilst still being able to walk out of the bar.”

BEST GIG?

Clint: “We just played a show at a café with the Napoleon Complex, and while they were playing a group of ten-or-more clowns showed up in full costume. I’d say that if you end up partying with clowns and crashing at one of their houses your first night on tour, you’ve got a special thing going.”

WORST GIG?

Clint: “A few years ago I was in a three-piece metal band. We went to New York for some record label–showcase thing. I ended up getting jumped the night before outside of the hotel bar at around four in the morning. It cost me two fake front teeth, a split lip, and two black eyes.”

BRUSH WITH THE FAMOUS...

George: “When it comes to the ‘famous,’ my rule of thumb is: if they don’t know my name and my personal problems and desires and ambitions, then I have no interest in theirs.”

TOP THREE END-OF-THE-WORLD CDs?

Clint:

1. Silverchair, Diorama. “Daniel Johns is pure sex.”

2. Jeff Buckley, Grace. “He was the ultimate package.”

3. Led Zeppelin, Physical Graffiti. “I know it’s technically two CDs, but I’m just starting to get to know this album pretty well and couldn’t imagine being without it.”

George:

1. The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack.

2. Björk, Vespertine. “She taught me how to be a man.”

3. Sole, Selling Live Water. “Anticon are my heroes.”

IF YOU COULD HAVE LUNCH WITH ANYONE...

George: “Benjamin Franklin, because he was more accomplished by the age of 18 than I will be by the age of 99. Or Larry David, and I would let him start on his lunch if it were to arrive before mine.”

PREDICTION FOR 2012?

Tyson: “I was talking to a friend the other day about the Earth’s poles shifting, and she replied, ‘Some people think the world will end in 2012; I think weed will be legal.’ She should write political speeches.”
