The get in the van and go ethic of “Rock n Roll” is what possessed Gertie Fox from start to finish.
The band from the beginning was never content to just be a group that got together to play occasional gigs. In addition to playing the small clubs in Los Angeles such as the Knitting Factory, Mr. T’s Bowl, The Echo and Spaceland, they wrote, recorded songs and then hit the road as much as possible. When looked back on years later, the early 2000’s were an intense time of transition. Significant technological and social changes were beginning to take place that proved to be a transitional stage of society and the world at large. Gertie Fox existed while this transition was taking place. Gertie Fox booked gigs around the country using MySpace.com to post recordings online and show photos of the band in action before Facebook or Instagram grew to what they are.
They hand-built recording studios by driving all over California to buy the gear needed at music shops or from the garages of old men rather than being able to order from Amazon with overnight shipping. Everything was a process. When the band’s van was broke down on the side of the road or lost trying to find a venue in some remote location, there was not GPS on a Smart Phone to help. Road atlases were used to navigate the expansive United States. Communication was limited and the band would often find a local public library to answer an email. The convenience of apps was still many years away.
