White China Gold is...

A freak who won a lawsuit against himself (Hunter v. Hunter 2015) after accidentally faking his own death in a series of allegedly real drug overdoses. Crowned the American Ambassador of Sleaze by his home state of Alaska, which happens to be much closer to Russia and Canada than the rest of America. Dubbed "The Undisputed Champion of Bath Salt Soul" and "Scarface meets Prince" by someone who posted a photo of him on social media once. He thinks that you should believe everything you read. He feels like this is going well, so far. He's proven himself the best guitar player to ever come out of the little hospital in Anchorage, Alaska where the doctors had to cut him out of his mother's uterus because he was trying to kick his way out upside-down and backwards. He lost his birth certificate because he's absent minded and can't remember the name of the hospital. He's proven, both, his rock n roll prowess and absent-mindedness in bands like The Heavy, Portugal the Man, Kay Kay and his Weathered Underground, Wild Orchid Children, Saves the Day, Forgive Durden, Mad Rad, Tilson XOXO, and a thousand others you've probably never heard of. 

Babes was recorded live in an old theater in Seattle, Washington in the middle of a speedball psychosis. He spent most of the session either locked in the bathroom or trying to build new guitar pedals out of found materials to get the perfect sound. Something he had no previous knowledge of. And, apparently, continues to have no knowledge of. It didn't go well. But with the help of master musicians and engineers Aaron Benson, Jacob Hoffman, Terry Mattson, Phil Peterson, Chris Proctor, Vox Mod, Steve Fisk, Shaprece, and Steve Turnidge, the record was finsihed. He feels strongly about his decision to burn his Seattle life to the ground and accidentally move to the Hollywood Hills to stash his own special color of sleaze in the third O of the Hollywood Sign. He watches from his bedroom window each night to make sure it stays safe. It's been said to be the reason that Midwestern tourists block traffic on Beachwood Drive every single day of the year to take photos where it looks like they're holding the Hollywood Sign.
