Today, singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek is best known for his work as
Sun Kil Moon. Benji, his latest LP under this moniker, was one of 2014’s most acclaimed albums, and featured prominently in a number of year-end lists. In the wake of this widespread critical success, there’s plenty of reason to look back at the lifespan of Red House Painters, Kozelek’s first musical project.

Though credited to John Andrews and The Yawns, Bit By the Fang is actually the one-man debut from Andrews, a multi-instrumentalist and member of the neo-psych collectives Woods and Quilt. As for The Yawns, they’re credited as an “imaginary back-up band,” and that description offers a pretty good indication of Bit By the Fang’s pleasantly warped vibe.
The Other Side of Shel Silverstein
I grew up with Shel Silverstein poems – Where the Sidewalk Ends and The Giving Tree were considered required reading for nearly everyone in my generation. It was not until years later that I also discovered that Silverstein was an accomplished songwriter. He penned Johnny Cash’s fan favorite “Boy Named Sue” as well as a number of other successful tracks. His own 1972 studio album Freakin’ at the Freakers Ball was an eclectic mix of wild songs and silly prose – and my first introduction to Silverstein as a musician.
