By the time he’d moved to Minneapolis at 20 years old, you’d have thought Con Davison was just a wandering music school drop out. He moved into a house with too many people, and got random jobs at mediocre places. Music had subsided to no more than a quiet hobby to cope with the woes of being young and away from home. But, almost accidentally, musical favors turned into consistent involvement, and Davison slowly stumbled his way into the Twin Cities music scene, first lending his drumming to numerous projects (most recently Bad Bad Hats and Dreamspook) and now onto his first solo effort.
There used to be this warship called the Eaton, I came to find out later. A great steel hulk used in the Pacific. It crashed 3 times after the war (the worst with the USS Wisconsin) and then was sunk for target practice in 1969. The same year Gary Usher and my Eau Claire, WI hometown hero, Curt Boettcher made their last record as Sagittarius; the immersive, sunshiny, Moog-strewn, hippie-nadir ‘The Blue Marble’. I also found an orchid outside Eaton, WI last year. It was all on a wavelength. Somehow it all made sense.
