“I was brothers with Ray,” Oni explained to “The Double Stop” podcast. “He was a good dude. He was a great guy to me. When I arrived into L.A., he was a beautiful man to me. He was an unbelievable talent. So this ‘Sun Red Sun’, it’s his extension for him. And this song ‘Sun Red Sun’ is written in the idea of that I’m speaking for him and I’m speaking for me. ‘Sun Red Sun’… you know, shine on me forever. That kind of thing. So you’ll hear it in the lyrics when you hear the song. So Ray is a dominant and principal meaning in the title of the album.”
Asked what it is about his chemistry with Lynch that keeps him coming back to the band after leaving the group several times in the last few years, Logan said: “It’s [George‘s] undeniable riffage — the riffage of the sexiness that he supplies to me that I get from no other. I can never get it from any other.
“We have a special thing going on. It’s been like that forever. And if you were to ask him, [he would tell you] the same thing: it’s like no other. It’s just the way that it works. Somehow, the energy and the synergy of what it about, it works together. He evokes the riffs that just make me wanna fucking write. That’s fine and simple. That’s it. He’s magical, he’s a purist, he’s a deep thinker, and I think he acknowledges me as the same.
“When he tells me, ‘Oh, man, that was a great lyric,’ I take that and run home with it. ‘Cause we’re acknowledging each other.
“I think we just need to let things happen at this stage. And I’m always gonna be there for it.”
LYNCH MOB‘s last release was the “Unplugged: Live From Sugarhill Studios” EP, which came out in March 2013.
