PULL ANCHOR is a bass and drum duo from Joshua Tree, California featuring Leo Bost on drums and Larry Bost on bass.
Pull Anchor have recently gained the spotlight by opening for such acts as The Meat Puppets, Mike Watt and the Secondmen, and Saccharine Trust. The new release, entitled "In The Dirt" was recorded/mixed by Pete Mazich and mastered by Mike Watt at Casa Hanzo in San Pedro last September. The track list will include Discordant Bong, Broken Gears (see video links below), and others yet to be announced. The current plan is to release it independently on May 1st.
Larry describes PULL ANCHOR's music as jazz-influenced punk rock over a background of samples from old vinyl records. The band creates this live and in studio by utilizing turntables fed into guitar amps. The band controls the feed with volume pedals. With a few of its influences being Charlie Parker, the Minutemen, Lightning Bolt, and Saccharine Trust, PULL ANCHOR offers a very unique presentation and needs to be experienced live to be truly appreciated.
