Early into my 2nd 2-week stay helping out in the 9th Ward of New Orleans, my new friend and fellow volunteer, Quinten Collier, gave me a CD of some songs he'd written and recorded. A few months into his 6-month stay in New Orleans, Quinten found an old reel-to-reel tape recorder buried in a storage closet at Common Ground, the relief organization we both volunteered with. Thus was born the 1-man band Watermelon's recording of "Echo's Bones," a lo-fi 14-song acoustic guitar masterpiece (in my humble opinion). This is the brilliant last song on the CD. Slapped together with video and pics I shot, much of it during "Spring Break in the 9th Ward." Here's a different picture of a generation you're not seeing on MTV or Girls Gone Wild videos.
