Copilot Eyedrops 

Basement Arthritis

It's marvelous how fast a band can become "official" in these internet days, isn't it? Missoula "surfadelic" band Copilot Eyedrops sprung up in a spontaneous practice session last November, and it already has YouTube videos, a Facebook page and an EP available for download on Bandcamp.

The EP in question, featuring four songs and clocking in at less than 10 minutes, is far too blown-out and fuzzy to enjoy unless you are really dedicated to lo-fi music, but it does offer a taste of surfy garage rock that's potentially a blast live. Drummer Stuart Landers, who's played in the Chalfonts, says Copilot Eyedrops started when he and guitarist Gabrial Kerber were playing around in a basement during a Day of the Dead party and "eventually our makeshift jams became songs." Jamie Gilligan has joined on keyboards and vocals: Landers says they'd like to record other tracks and play more gigs. I fully support more surf rock in Missoula.

Boys, Copilot Eyedrops and Trick Shot Johnson play the VFW on Thu., March 14, at 10 PM. $2.
