Introducing - Thomas Pearson
From Atlanta, Georgia, Thomas Pearson is a father and an elementary school teacher who trains Jui-Jitsu in their spare time. Before his journey into fatherhood and academia, he was making important music for generations to come. Thomas gave me affirmations that I wasn’t alone in my anger and frustration with some of the institutions around me, Hang Your Head and Foundation’s later records were pivotal to my interest in aggressive music. I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to share some of these things of his, with you. Please revisit Foundation’s records and every project that has come after by the members of the band.
Show us something you never leave the house without...
As a father of two, I can actually never leave the house without my day-bag stuffed with water, snacks, diapers, and backup clothes.
Show us the most organized area of your home...
Oddly enough my closest, which contains a hodgepodge of clothing, records, and tchotchkes, is the most organized area of my home. Please never look in my drawers.
Show us where you go to relax...
I'm going to give a little context for this, but my Jiu-Jitsu School is the place I go to relax. Unit 2 BJJ is the only place I can be that I am not dwelling on the past or feeling anxious about the future. The practice of jiu-jitsu is demanding, but it is the only time I am truly in the moment and not worried or stressed about life.
Show us the oldest record you own…
That would be my 8 and 1/2 soundtrack (1963). I picked this up on a day trip to D.C. from Baltimore. I took the train down with my daughter and my good friend Sarah King gave us a 5-star tour of the area including an absolutely crucial stop at Joint Custody to purchase a few things. Here's a picture of Ambrose and Lucy on said day.
Show us the last things you purchased...
The last thing I recently purchased was this crewneck from Tracksmith. I had been rocking a navy crewneck from Penfield for almost 6 years until I lost it this past spring while I was out on a day hike with the kids. It was hard to get over, but I finally pulled the trigger on a replacement.
