Among the many jam-heavy sets lighting up Summer Camp Music Festival last weekend, two highly anticipated ones were played on Friday and Saturday late night by recent scene stealers Aqueous. The Buffalo, NY groove-rock four piece have been playing a number of tremendous shows over the past year, so they were an obvious choice for keeping the party going into the AM at Summer Camp.
Today, at 4:20 P.M., the band released a new video of their nearly 18-minute cover of Oysterhead’s “Pseudo Suicide” from their Friday late night set. About the cover, guitarist and lead singer Mike Gantzer had this to say:
“Having been inspired by The Police, Phish, and Primus, when Trey Anastasio/Stewart Copeland/Les Claypool formed Oysterhead and released The Grand Pecking Order, we were all floored by it’s epic weirdness! It’s been on our radar for a few years to cover one of those tunes, but we needed a context that would allow us to drop that kind of darker high energy vibe that “Pseudo Suicide” carries. When we saw that both of our Summer Camp sets were at 2:00 am this year, we knew it was the perfect crowd and context to bust this one out! Special shout out to one of our diehard AQ fans who pestered the band to cover Oysterhead, too.”
