I’m fortunate to have gotten to know Jason Sukut a bit during his time as keyboard player/backup singer/all-around entertainer during his time in Source Victoria.
Though he and the band recently parted ways, Sukut continues to lead his main project, Tempe pop-rock outfit Domo. The band is celebrating a CD release on Saturday at Yucca Tap Room for its new album, With Friends Like These … We Need New Friends, an unrelenting collection of pop-punk gems that don’t fuck around (the longest track is 3:35).
And for what it’s worth, Sukut’s Men at Work-inspired handbill earned him his second Flier of the Week nod from Phoenix New Times’ Up on the Sun blog. His other winning submission borrowed the cover of classic Nintendo game Metroid.
Download Heart Attack below, a song that fondly name-checks Quicksand and Wilco – two bands dear to my heart. Sukut talks about this and more in a Q&A with Ed Masley at The Arizona Republic/azcentral.com.
