A little late on this, but Live at the Viper Room Volume 2 was recently released. Featuring the song “You’re Where I Wanna Be” that is only available on this live recording. This show was a few months before Live at the Viper Room Volume 1, and features the same amazing band line up: Michael Knott (lead vocals, electric guitar), Andy Prickett (lead guitar, background vocals), Eric Campuzano (bass), Robert Meyer (Fender Rhodes, keyboard, organ, background vocals), and Ed “Giles” Benrock (drums, background vocals). Pick it up on the Blonde Vinyl BandCamp page today.
A surprise single release from Michael Knott (after some prompting by Joshua Lory). This is a song that Knott recorded years ago, but is now being released for you to stream or purchase individually. Check out the trippy cool layered vocals on this track!

Just released from the vaults by Blonde Vinyl: Michael Knott – Live At The Viper Room 3/4/1998. From the old Knott page news section: “Mike’s second “official” post-Aunt Bettys solo project show was held on March 4, ’98 at the Viper Room in Hollywood. The show attracted a large crowd, including many of the industry reps invited from labels such as Atlantic, Interscope, and significant smaller labels.
Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, and the bass player of Live were also seen in attendance. They were there to see bands following Knott, but they heard Knott nonetheless.”
Knott’s backing band includes Andy Prickett, Eric Campuzano, Robert Meyer, and Ed “Giles” Benrock.
If you are planning on being at Joshua Fest next month, be sure to catch Michael Knott and band (Joshua Lory on bass and Jim Chaffin on drums) on the main stage on September 2nd and the acoustic stage September 3rd. Or if you are on the fence about going, maybe this will push you over the edge 🙂
