"Pat Gubler (aka P.G. Six) came on the scene in 1994, as a member of Memphis Luxure, a noise/rock band from Port Chester, NY. That band morphed into Tower Recordings, a musically omnivorous ensemble that released several albums on the Siltbreeze and Communion labels over the past decade. Pat's first solo album, Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites saw the light of day in 2001, followed by The Well of Memory in 2004. Music from the Sherman Box Series, a collection of instrumentals, arrived in late 2006. His music fuses an unlikely range of influences including '60s British folk, country rock, & experimental music. On Slightly Sorry, in addition to the Anglo-Irish quasi-folk influences, you get some Garth Hudson attempts, some Roger McGuinn-izations, the odd Crazy Horse-ism and a pretty nifty cover of a song by Youngbloods pal Jeffrey Cain (note there is a near-approximation of some Dave Schramm-ittude on that Cain number -- not really but kinda. Okay, maybe not). After all influences have been calculated, the roots-informed, detail-obsessed, defiantly handspun sound -- and the transcendently glossy results of such alchemy, make the truth about P.G. Six."
