The GoToms... Bill
Harwood, J.D. Bender, Perry Pineda & myself Robert Heinze. Later
on newer members included Bernie Zwass & Patrick Kilcoyne.
Perry engineered and
recorded most of the songs even after leaving the band as bass player
but continuing to assist with newer recordings. He also
his own recording
projects listed under Ethylene Keen. Describing the GoToms music
is not so easy, part psychedelic, part blues, part jazz & part rock? There were so many
different influences in the beginning I just couldn't tell you what we
sounded like, or who we might of sounded like? I guess it was
mostly the free form environment that made the music unique. Since the early days
of the mid 90's we tried to keep that freeform environment even after the newer
members helped us attain a more roots rock and roll feel. Bill 'GoToum' Harwood passed away
in 2005 and left a lot of good memories in these recordings which I
hope will live on. It was
good fun and good times,
most of the time anyway...heh. Between Perry and myself, we were both interested in the engineering
and recording process so we managed to record quite a bit of the
music. Please click on the GoToms picture above to listen to one of my
favorite songs from the obscure 'Sepulveda Lounge' album called "Your
Recent Behavior" once distributed online at Tower records years ago.
Other obscure recording projects to note would be the 'To Dissapear' and 'Gotta Goa'
My sincere condolences to the
Bill 'Gotoum' Harwood of the alternative rock band
the 'GoToms' passed away on 11/13/2005...
All those that knew Bill will
surely miss him... Robert Heinze...

This page dedicated to the late Bill 'Gotoum' Harwood
1950 - 2005
I will miss a good friend, but his music will always be with me...
Robert Heinze 11/13/2005.
The last song that 'Gotoum' recorded was with
his son Sam Harwood, who wrote and sings the lead vocals on this light
hearted song called 'Sasquatch'. Gotoum is only playing rhythm guitar on this track because
unfortunately he passed away
before he got the chance to finish the song. It was filled in by guest
artist Barry Allen Honig with Perry Pineda on another rhythm guitar part.
