The Jigsaw Seen
The Jigsaw Seen
If you've somehow managed to miss out on the brilliantly innovative music of The Jigsaw Seen over the past 25 years, it's a pity but you're in luck!
Burger Records will be helping to reintroduce the Los Angeles band's masterful mix of Art Rock, Psych, Garage and Americana in a Guided By Voices-inspired campaign by releasing a singles and rarities collection, "The Jigsaw Seen For The Discriminating Completist" in Summer 2016.

The band's previous releases this decade, "Old Man Reverb" (2014), "Gifted" (2012), "Winterland" (2011) and "Bananas Foster" (2010) received great reviews from UNCUT (UK), The Sunday Times (UK), The Independent (UK), The Daily Mirror (UK), Blurt, Glide, Babysue, Big Takeover, Dagger, PopMatters, All Music, iTunes and countless weekly and daily papers, also appearing on numerous “Year End Best Of” lists in the US, UK, Spain, Sweden and Norway. Tracks have been featured on NPR’s “Song Of The Day” and Magnet magazine’s “MP3 Of The Day.” The albums appeared on the CMJ Top 200 chart, reaching the Top 10 at numerous radio stations in the US and Canada and receiving airplay in the UK, Japan, Australia, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and South America.

The Jigsaw Seen's music has been heard in the television series "Futurama," "Shameless," and "Wilfred" among others and will be featured in the upcoming theatrical film "Who Gets The Dog?" starring Alicia Silverstone.

The list of bands that opened for The Jigsaw Seen in the '90s includes the Smashing Pumpkins and Kara's Flowers (Maroon 5.)

Jonathan Lea and Tom Currier of The Jigsaw Seen recently performed with Ray and Dave Davies of The Kinks at their historic reunion in London on Dec. 18, 2015.

The Jigsaw Seen have been nominated for a Grammy and an LA Weekly Award.
Spidey - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Spidey was alone a lot as a child, He used to make up songs to keep himself company. Now these songs are your companions. Thanks for listening.
As a former pro skateboarder, Spidey had fame worldwide and was known for his seriousness on the skateboard and in life. As a frontman, Spidey's performance has the panache of Liza Minelli, but with the earthy delivery of John Lennon. Having such solid support, Spidey has the room to venture into various moods of bipolar musical disorder which can range from musical theater to hooky rock-pop gems with frayed edges. Beneath his smooth vocals is the bittersweet anxiety of emotional urgency.
