did I mention I play rock&roll in a duo w/ my partner of 20 years?
I play guitar. Zinnia plays drums. We both sing
we're called
TrASh pANda GO karT

"Chaotic cartooniness turned up to 11!"
— Karen Eisenbrey (Square Pig in a Round Hole)

"TPGK will whisk you back to being 13, and making a weed pipe out of a Mountain Dew can while college radio blares in the background which is the highest possible praise I can possibly give."
— James Burns // (Negative Passengers)






(check the video for "BiRdS" right here!)


"Love the guitar tone on this short but sweet song from Trash Panda Go Kart! In less than a minute this duo had me singing along and bopping my head in a track conjured out of nowhere. It has snare rattle, it has call + response vox, my only gripe is I wish there was more of it!"
— Moths and Giraffes (@mothsgiraffes)

... annnnd I play LEAD BASS in improv-rock stoner-psych trio
BEYOND CAPTAIN ORCA!



Jack Endino... lead guitar
JP Lenon... lead drums
5... lead bass

plus occasional guest-friends!







"BCO! display classic power-trio telepathy and sky-scraping interplay,
moving from peak to peak with a kind of muscular transcendence.
Very few bands in the Northwest are going as deep and long as these guys do."

β€” Dave Segal, The Stranger
