Here is an excerpt from the article, and be sure to click through here to listen to the track!
— Excerpt —
As famed as Seattle’s music scene is, the city still manages to house performers who remain largely local favorites. Take The Missionary Position and its founders, singer/guitarist Jeff Angell and keyboardist Ben Anderson. Angell has been on the scene since 2002 with his band Post Stardom Depression; as The Missionary Position, he and Anderson have been wowing crowds for the last five years; and now they’re together again in an Emerald City supergroup, Walking Papers.
But while these names may not be familiar to many readers (yet), the other members of Walking Papers certainly are. When The Missionary Position opened for Screaming Trees/Mad Season drummer Barrett Martin’s band The Barrett Martin Project in 2012, Angell and Martin hit it off, and a musical partnership was born. Looking to take their collaboration “to the next level”, the pair turned to another longtime fan of Angell: Seattle resident and former member of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver, Duff McKagan.
“I hoped at some point I would do something with Jeff,” McKagan recently told Rolling Stone. “Early on, when we were looking for singers for Velvet Revolver, I brought Jeff Angell down, about 2003. I’ve had a relationship with him and wanted to work with him for that long.”
