Call it a supergroup if you’d like, call it a fun project by some long-time Columbus music veterans if you’d rather, The Damn Thing features Marcy Mays (Scrawl), David Holm (Ugly Stick, Bigfoot, Cherry Chrome), Pat Murphy (Bob City) and Ben Kemp (The Honey’s).

There’s a rumor that the band has been recording some music for a debut release and you can get a sneak preview of these songs by checking out a couple of tracks on Bandcamp. With a head’s up from Ben Kemp (“I think you’ll love the fourth song in our set, it’s probably our heaviest song”), I filmed “Crooked Eye” at the Independents’ Day festival in September. And, Ben was right, I do love the song and hope to hear a recorded version of it in 2018!
