Biography

There are two bands called Pidgeon.
1) Pidgeon is 5 piece band from San Francisco.
They have released two albums on the label Absolutely Kosher Records.
“From Gutter W/ Love” July 27, 2004
“Might As Well Go Eat Worms” September 23, 2008
Pidgeon is:
Val Iwamasa- guitar, voice
Micah Foley - guitar, voice, screaming
Alexi Alexaieff - bass, screaming
Troy Enrile - drums
Nick Garrett - guitar, screaming

2) There is very little info available on Pidgeon. The listed personnel includes 3 musicians/vocalists and one poet. All songs were written by Jobriath Salisbury & poet Richard T. Marshall . A blonde lass named Cheri Gage is credited with lead vocals & autoharp. Bill Strong Smith plays drums & percussion. The legendary Jobriath is credited with keyboards, guitar & lead vocals. (This LP is probably the controversial solo artist’s recording debut.) The self-titled Pidgeon album has a lot of musical variety including wild Psych guitar & harpsichord on “Milk & Honey” and “Irene”. Vocal harmonies abound. Some tracks are more folky/moody /introspective, while others rock. Jobriath’s vocals are very distinctive throughout.

jobriath.org:
In mid-1968, Jobriath, now age 22, quit the L.A. cast of HAIR to form the band Pidgeon. With lyricist Richard T. Marshall, he had just composed a batch of songs. Stan Farber, a noted session singer in the area, found them & agreed to produce.

    the similar artists are not at all like them, does anyone have better suggestions. I like the screaming over female singing and tempo switching parts the best if that helps...
