Beach Fossils @ South Street Seaport last Friday (more by Chris La Putt)
Beach Fossils

Captured Tracks confirm that Beach Fossils guitarist Sennott Burke has left the band. Sennott himself got in touch and told me, "I have nothing but love for the band and everyone in it. I just need to do my own thing." He added that, "If you are interested in playing guitar for Beach Fossils, get in touch via email beachfossils@gmail.com ASAP and be ready to leave Friday." Friday is the date of their Toledo, Ohio show.

This may or may not have something to do with a bass being lobbed into a river.

This news comes the same day that Vivian Girls & Best Coast announce new drummers.

Beach Fossils are scheduled to play Mercury Lounge with Small Black on Wednesday night (7/14, before Friday, before Toledo) (and the Bug Jar in Rochester tonight, even more before Toledo). It's unclear if these shows are affected at the moment (update: Sennott says, "Yeah, I'll be there, I'm going to finish this leg of tour and possibly longer, pending replacement.").

A band might break up because a guy threw his bass into a river?

Well. Maybe that's, actually pretty fitting.

does someone need to really do their own thing 2 days before band goes on a long tour?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2010 9:18 PM

be ready to leave Friday?
who the fuck do they think is just going to drop/change their life on three days' notice to tour with Beach Fossils?

Seriously?

I'm going to replace that guitarist with my cock.

Standing drummer with no kick... What a fucking gimmick. Don't tell me banging a waist-high surface is ergonomically comfortable or functional in any way.

Talk about a straw man, 10:58

Because Beach Fossils would be soooo much better / accepted by y'all if they had a kick...or didn't play Jaguars...or didn't use reverb.

Sure.

That said, their bassist is still a moron.

Good for Burke -- he was the best part of that band, and with such an incongruously nice stratocaster, I don't blame him for getting the hell away from that bass player.

@ 11:49 PM. No one on that stage is playing a Jaguar. I see a stratocaster, a telecaster and an old moserite bass. Get your facts straight, player.

That being said, You could learn this band's set in a night and make moves.

They hired the guy from the Beets with his little starter acoustic guitar and the band has changed its name to Beetsch Fossils.

Wait, Mosrite bass? The one he was playing at Bruar Falls...which was directly before the Water Taxi show. Which means that he premeditated throwing a cheap bass into the river as a stunt, not his favorite son.

Punk rock

Woah, this is kinda sad news to me. I love Beach Fossils and their sound, and I hope that they will sound the same with the new guitar player they find :\

Posted by Kemet | July 15, 2010 2:03 AM

dustin payseur wrote 80% of the record on his own.

theyll sound the same.

Why is Brooklyn full of so many petty jerks? Why all the snarky comments? Hey, if you don't like this band get your own record deal and tour. Fuck you. They rock.

Posted by Unbound | July 16, 2010 11:48 PM

i agree dude. buncha weirdo jerks.
