Joe GriffinRough Cut Love – released September 3, 2006

“Joe Griffin’s ‘Rough Cut Love’ is loaded with infectious pop hooks, impeccable classic rock sensibilities, and seasoned with a dash of alt-rock spiciness…the songwriting here is more mature, the musicianship experienced, and the lyrical craftsmanship poetic. “Rough Cut Love” marks the impressive emergence of Joe Griffin as a creative force to be reckoned with, and one that should easily win the hearts and ears of all who take the time to listen.”
— Vince Font, “Schizopolis” Internet Radio Show

Donny Who Loved Bowling’s fourth album is a dark affair, much more raw and abstract than their previous releases. Harsh, unsettling and by turns angry and despondent, the music evokes pain, loss and helplessness. There’s also a down side.

Donny Who Loved BowlingScreeching and Exploding – released September 21, 2010.

“Plays like the soundtrack to a futuristic David Lynch western.”
–Vince Font, “Schizopolis” Internet Radio Show

The third full-length release by Chicago/Austin experimental duo Donny Who Loved Bowling finds the band embracing acoustic instrumentation to a greater degree, paying warped homage to classic rock guitar riffs and 30s blues licks, alongside their trademark electronic twists. “Screeching and Exploding” is at once more meditative and more brutal than their debut album, “tree fort,” and displays a clear progression from the organic advances of their critically-acclaimed “Butcher Covers” release of 2008.
