THE MONOLOGUE BOMBS
The Monologue Bombs is the solo project of sinner-songwriter Scott David Phillps. Phillips has been a fixture of the North Carolina musical landscape for 20 years, first with The Boy Wonder Jinx (with his brother Dan of Zapruder Point) & Goner (now GNØER), a giant of the Raleigh scene since the 2000’s. Phillips has always been driven by emotional storytelling in his songwriting, and it cuts through more directly through The Monologue Bombs.
From Phillips on Orchard EP & the upcoming Reaves EP:
"While writing this batch of songs, it became clear to me that the album divides nicely into two thematic halves--the "Orchard Side" being about coming of age in suburban Cleveland; the "Reaves Side" focusing on moving to Raleigh and the more late-period coming of age that followed. I've decided to accentuate the duality by recording the halves in two different places, with two different sets of personnel. Luckily, I've made a lot of musical friends that I respect and admire in the community to help me out! To wit:
The Orchard EP was recorded at The Shed in Raleigh with Matt Douglas (The Mountain Goats). Guests include John Teer (Chatham County Line), David Mueller (Birds Of Avalon/Dreamless), Reid Johnson (Sun Studies/Schooner), Anne-Claire , Rachel Kiel , Anne Polesnak (Utah!) Greg Eyman (GNØER), and Chip Crell.
The upcoming Reaves EP is being recorded at Dark Pines Studios in Graham NC, with a production team of Greg Elkins (Pershing Hill Sound) and Ryan Johnson (Silkworm Sound). The core band will consist of Jesse Huebner (Maldora , Console Command) on guitar; Christopher Scully-Thurston on stand-up bass; Matt Vooris on percussion; and myself. (I sing and play piano & accordion & guitar, by the way. :)) Confirmed guests for the Reaves Side include Kate Rhudy, Dan Phillips (Zapruder Point), Reese McHenry, Nathan Golub, Caitlin Cary (Tres Chicas), Andy Kerr, Caroline Mamoulides (Pinto), David Morris, and Chip Crell (again!)."
