(Paul Kaufman solicits support for a new project by Che Underground’s own.)
San Diego has embraced its prodigal musicians as they return after decades. Consider the Comeuppance, a “chamber pop” combo led by David Fleminger (guitar, vocals) and Heather Vorwerck (cello).
This ensemble has a distinctive sound influenced by diverse jazz, country and classical traditions, all the while staying true to the high standards of songwriting that Che Underground readers know to expect from all of Dave’s endeavors.
Readers of this blog will recall that the Comeuppance relocated last spring to San Diego. The move marked a homecoming for David after 25 years in San Francisco; it’s a return to the city where he created so many memories as the creative force of bands like the Answers and the Mirrors as well as a founding member of a wide array of musical notables from Social Spit to Manual Scan.
They’ve recently expanded their lineup to include a rhythm section manned by San Diego notables Paul Brewin (drums, formerly of Manual Scan and Drip Tank) and fellow returnee Tom Ward (bassist with projects that range from the Nashville Ramblers to the Gravedigger V).
And…The Comeuppance’s full-length CD has just been nominated for “Best Local Recording” for the San Diego Music Awards!
Voting for this award begins on June 25, so cast your ballots, and help the Comeuppance celebrate at the Awards show on August 13!
