Back in my Macon, GA days (1993-1997) I got to know and work with some of the most talented and interesting people I've ever met, even to this very day 20 years later. One of them was George "Ronnie" Smith who, in addition to being the most creative videographer I've ever known, was also the heart and soul of Siamese Left, an "... abstractly-named, rural Georgia pop-rock bands that stayed together for more than 15 years before finally releasing a debut album." I edited this video, some of which I also shot, to coincide with the release of their first album, one that was produced by Chuck Leavell. Unfortunately there was no social media back in 1996 and with only dial-up and AOL this video didn't get nearly much exposure as it should have gotten.
A couple of weeks ago, Peyton DeLaney "Laney" Maynard, Siamese Left's soft-spoken Bass player passed away. It is with Laney in mind that I'm re-releasing this video. Recording old SD VHS footage onto HD = B.A.D. but that's ok. It looks fine, it sounds great and most importantly it is a lasting tribute to 4 very talented musicians who simply loved to play.
Rest in Peace, Laney.
