Finalist in multiple iterations of yearly “Best Of Tucson,” in the country music category. Growing up on a ranch in central Arizona, there was a lot of country music on the radio. This took a while to sink in. After quite a few years banging around with obscenely ridiculous and fun underground extreme rock ‘n roll/noise, Topless “went country” around 1990. He masterminded the essentially invisible “all-star” Tucson underground-country group Topless Opry (2000-2004); their never-to-be-remembered album, “No Phoenix Blues” (2002), achieved minimal notoriety/radio play, based on the merits of its bold, honkytonk-style cover of Lou Reed’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties.” Solo albums “It’s So December” (2011) and “Big Black Heart” (2017) have each received two or three shots of critical acclaim.
