It all started with swim trunks, a Summer Reading ‘zine and sunscreen. Oh, and a 7-inch; we can't forgot that part. "I've always wanted to do my own record," explains Bones (ne Sullivan), referring to the solo single he released as part of the limited "S/S FRIENDS" fashion line. "I never thought it'd be reggae, but then last summer happened." Ah, last summer. At the time, Sullivan was getting restless over the looming release of Sam Champion's Heavenly Bender LP, so he set aside some no-frills studio time. The two-sided result, "Easy Street" and "Act So Casual," became an easy, breezy mission statement for Sean Bones, a project Sullivan describes as "music that might cause people to scratch their heads a bit, only to realize that scratching their heads would make a good dance move." Indeed. Just ask the folks over at RCRD LBL, who got behind Sullivan early on and wrote, "Canvas shorts and reggae music sound like summer spent by the water being lazy. Sean Bones is not lazy." [+]
