40th Day talks about Lovely Like a Snake

In 1986, 40th Day, reconvening for a show this weekend at the Larimer Lounge, came together when drummer Sid Davis and then guitarist Todd Howell formed the project in the D.U. area, where many of the band members over the years lived. That's also where the band's practice space was located, a place called the Greenhaus, a name which doubled as the name of imprint established by Davis' brother to independently release the outfit's albums.
