"Beneath Pavement, the Beach" - 9/13/2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Celebrity Pilots is the nom de plume for Chris Sheehan, co founder or The All Golden and former member of The Witch Hazel Sound. Using chiming guitars, analog keys and bent circuitry, Sheehan searches for lush, warped soundscapes to perch his Anglocentric by way of Ohio skewed pop visions.

"Beneath Pavement, the Beach" is the debut album from The Celebrity Pilots (to be released on Sunken Treasure Records 9/13/05). Recorded at Waterloo Sound Recording in Kent, Ohio with the eccentric Todd Tobias (Guided By Voices, Gem), the album stretches from taut post-punk sing along anthems to longer atmospheric offerings.

Rounding out the line up is a group of incredibly diverse and talented musicians: Jess Faller on keys (Tiara, Chris McCoy), Adam Dowell on bass (The Moving Parts) and Dan Gerken on drums and vocals(Miranda Sound).

In addition to finishing the most recent offering from The All Golden, Sheehan has played on Robert Pollard's 'Fiction Man' and 'From a Compound Eye' as well as rhythm guitar and keys with Doug Gillard on the road.
