Tera Melos

How Patagonian Rats as the realization of Malcolm Gladwell's "10,000 Hours Theory"

Spend any Sunday with experimental rock band Tera Melos and you'll learn a thing or two.

1). They've shared the road with Mike Watt
2). Nick Reinhart is an avid admirer of Brian Setzer
3). Marnie Stern met Richard Nixon when she was very little
4). Drummer John Clardy's tongue is bigger than the inside of his mouth
5). A cartoon of bassist Nathan Latona's face makes for a good logo (see above)

These facts, while fascinating, take a back seat to the sounds you'll find on their latest full length Patagonian Rats. It's the album Reinhart calls the record he's always wanted to make.

Our conversation yields pretty terrific fruit about the Sac Music Scene (or the perception of it at least), the origins of record label Sargent House and the rigors of what's next.

Plus: Arch made O.A.'s very first animated .GIF of Nick Reinhart playing guitar. Enjoy the epilepsy.
