For the last 5 years, living in a car, booking his own shows, producing all his own music, Paleo has become something of a mantlepiece in the American house show circuit. His tour history is a database for kindred spirits: over 700 shows across the US, about 150 a year since 2005. A View Of The Sky is his third effort. The songs contained therein, vivid scrawls of a remarkable mind, are the first compositions he made following his marathon year; it is also Paleo’s first collaboration with Partisan Records out of Brooklyn, NY– home to Deer Tick, JBM, Mountain Man, and more.

Working For A Nuclear Free City formed around brothers Phil and Jon Kay and schoolfriend Gary McLure. Ed Hulme joined two days before the band’s first gig, cementing an unconventional line-up that doesn’t always have a singer, though Phil takes the majority of the vocals.
