Honeyrider — the name an appropriation of Ursula Andress’ bikini-clad beachcombing personality through the 1962 James Connection film Dr Zero — is actually the energy pop alias of multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter Gary Strickland. In 1996, Strickland documented a one-off one beneath the name to get a Candy Floss one, “Drugstore Shoot-Out,” which highlighted a visitor appearance by Lisah from San Diego-based indie/emo rockers Crimson Dye #5 on vocals. Strickland continuing to utilize the name, documenting many Honeyrider singles for the renowned Damaged Items label. A few of these had been collected, alongside new materials, and released as All Systems Move!, the group’s first full-length, in 1998. That same season, Strickland still left the NORTH PARK region for employment at an archive distribution business in Germany. He got period off to record tracks in Britain and finished up keeping there, moving towards the northern area of the nation. Strickland eventually came back towards the U.S. (time for England regularly to record brand-new tracks) and started splitting his time taken between California as well as the Tampa Bay region. Damaged Goods released Honeyrider’s follow-up, Splashdown, in 2000, with Robin Hill (drums), Petrinka Drasovic (tempo electric guitar), and manufacturer/engineer Paul Sampson on bass. In 2002, Strickland authorized with Dionysus Information’ Orange Sky imprint, that may launch the long-awaited third Honeyrider recording.
