Mike Watt Project. Body Kite live soundtrack with Fantastic Planet

Pierre de Gaillande is extremely pleased to be collaborating with the legendary bassist and punk guru, Mike Watt, on an album of songs all generated by different drummers. This idea came  during Pierre's interview with Watt on Pierre Pressure. The concept is simple; every song starts with a drummer creating and recording a track, which is then sent to Watt to play bass on, then sent back to Pierre to layer on instruments and vocals. This album features and a mind-blowing array of musicians, who are busy touring and recording all over the world, so it is taking time, but we look forward to sharing it soon!
