Remember the scene from Rebel Without a Cause at the observatory when Buzz says "Hey, I'm a crab!" In that shared moment of intimate humor there was a glimmer of hope. Everything was going to work out this time, after all. Jonn Lunsford and Lisa Jackson have fulfilled the promise of hollow-body rockin' in a grange hall style, a party where you can win the dance contest in the name of love: What Were Flames Now Smolder. A rebel with a constellation. Al Larsen (Some Velvet Sidewalk) wads his guitar up into a ball for one song. Pat Maley tinkles the keys on a few others. Abandon the alter of drab and dull for some stone-free love-itis.

The cover art for What Were Flames Now Smolder was drawn by world-renown comic artist Adrian Tomine.
