Local boy makes good...

Posted By on Tue, Jun 21, 2005 at 12:46 PM

My friend Scott Taylor — leader of epic rockers User Shorty Patent Company and erstwhile music journalist — has been racking up some press lately.

According to Taylor, "write-ups in Boston's The Noise and Northampton's The Advocate both cite drugs as the major source of the album's sound.  Yeah, thanks - I'll be sure to send those off to my Dad."

Maybe if you wrote a song UNDER 10 minutes, man!

Taylor also reports that the national magazine Under the Radar  — a fine publication, I might add — has the disc slated for review in their next issue. "I pray the person actually listens to the album more than once this time," he says. Hey — is that a dig at me?

In related news, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals new manager Justin Goldberg has given User Shorty Patent Co. a spot on his  Indie 911 website. "Justin claims to actually like the album, but he could be just saying that because Grace played on it," Taylor says.

Aw, c'mon. He probably does like it — not everybody in this business is jaded and cynical.

Most. But not all.
