Video Archive: Christopher Halverson – “Hollywood”

The intro song is Syd Straw’s “Future 40s (String of Pearls).” Then Halverson kicks into his original “Hollywood,” which was a mainstay over the years in his sets with bands such as the Mighty Shock Tower, Sloe Loris, Verona, A Band Called Truman, etc.

This one is from deep in the archives — recorded by UWS Studio II at R.T. Quinlan’s on Sept. 16, 1995. Produced by Brandon Leno. Edited by Brandon Leno and Margo Abramson. The one and only Eric Swanson was on the sound board. Production assistance by Renee Hudacek, Melissa Long, Paul Lundgren, Dinelli Seneviratne and Nathan Steigman.

Yes! I remember the Mighty Shock Tower playing this one in like, 1990. "This next one's called 'Hollywood.' And she would, if you'd let her."

Fun Fact: The "Hollywood" this song refers to is the Hollywood apartment building on Second Street and Seventh Avenue East. (I played drums in Verona.)
