The Attic Classic:  Local rock trio EVEN THE ODD were among a long parade of bands heading to Mitch Easter’s Drive-In Studio in Winston-Salem North Carolina. Sergio Sericolo (guitars & vocals), Dave Rinaldi (bass) and Barry Breckinridge (drums) made the trip for their self-titled debut album. While there’s a bit of the jangly pop rock you would expect from an Easter produced album, other offbeat style elements were added to the band’s straight-forward rock sound by guest musician contributions.

Another album came from the band in 1991. ‘Medicine Man’ was recorded and released on Albany’s Blue Lunch Records label, reflecting a change in sound from their debut. It was also their last album, as Even The Odd disbanded sometime after.

The Attic Classic is “What It Means To Lie,” a track from the debut vinyl album.
