It was a regular day for Jack Denning, father and former lead singer in Rochester 80s punk band ‘The CaddiDaddis.’ He was tuning up is signature 1985 Fender Telecaster when he found a joint in his the case and decided to break his near 31 year T-break.
After much consideration, Jack tried to connect with his son by playing his favorite Bleachers album, ‘Strange Desire’.
“I just didn’t understand why people cared about all of his bands” Jack said referring to Antinoffs prominent musical pedigree. “They’re catchy and all, but that autotune stuff and over producing was a real draw back for me.”
Eleven minutes into Jacks ‘Bleachers and chill’ sesh,
‘I Wanna Get Better’ comes on the vinyl machine; and something magical happens.
“I had never thought to listen to them high before,” he said. “After the song ended I looked at my song in tears and said ‘You know what Travis,I totally get it now. I WANT to get better’.”
