Gates and Vasudeva are both awesome! Thank you for the info, I wasn't aware such project exists, and I'm falling in love right away! ;D it looks very interesting that the guys don't play their regular instruments over there.
ps. I know it might be quite maddening for these bands, but I suppose here on ap.net it still would help listing Ethan K. as an ex-Lydia guitarist too - people here might find some more interest as Lydia is one of ap's favourites I guess... And I personally am a fan of Lydia to this day, but Gates surpassed it being closer to my personal taste - I'd second that they can hold on their own, but why not use it to grab few more people to listen ;))
