If you know me, or my music, chances are, you know Harpoon Larry.
Harpoon Larry (or as he is more commonly known: Brock Cummings), has been by my side since day one. At first as my roommate, then as my tour mate, then as my manager, and all the while, as my best friend. If you haven't met Brock directly, than you have, at the very least bought merch from him at a show. For over 15 years, Brock has been rolling by my side, and without a doubt, the biggest supporter and advocate of me, and my work. It is not hyperbole when i say, that i would NOT have a career, tours, albums, fans, ANYTHING...if it were not for Brock. He was the first person to push me to pursue music as more than a hobby, and the dude has been there every step of the way to pick me up when i fall, help me build on my dream, and have my back through everything.
Without "Harpoon Larry"...there is no "Astronautalis"
And, after years of supporting me and my work, Brock is taking the first big step in pursing his own dream...to be a professional Disc Golfer. For as long as i have known Brock, he has played disc golf. He was the first person to introduce me to the sport back in 2000 (i think?). We would walk B.B. Owen Park in Dallas, smoking a joint, and carrying a 12 pack of Tecate, while we got faded, and hucked discs in the Texas heat. Since then, i have watched what started out like a walking kegger, slowly evolve into a passion, and eventually a full fledged obsession for Brock.
Long gone are the days of drinking and tossing discs in the rough, now i see Brock stretching daily, working on form, learning about flight paths, and spending every minute of the time he has off from supporting me, out on the disc golf course, honing his skills. So this year, as a 40th birthday present to himself, after years of competing quite successfully as an amateur, Brock has decided to go pro. While we both take a much needed break from the road, i'll be working on music, and he'll traveling to as many tournaments as possible, and hopefully competing in this year's European Open in Finland. To raise money for this dream, Brock has launched a line of "Harpoon Larry Signature Discs" and T-shirts, featuring an amazing design by our dear friend Andrew McAlpine!
If you play disc golf, you will see that these discs are the real damn deal, pressed up in a variety of great molds from Discmania and Innova, in amazing color ways. If you don't play disc golf, you should give it a try, it is a really wonderful sport, with courses all around, and...i mean...look at how awesome these look!
Aside from all of that, it doesn't matter if you are a avid disc golfer, or this is your first time hearing about the sport, if you love my music, just remember, it would literally not exist if it were not for everything Brock has done for me. And after years and years of his working tirelessly to help me pursue my dream, i think it is high time will all show him some love, and help Harpoon Larry out, in pursuit of his own.
