‘Where’s the Water?’

Local band creates music videos to promote community activism

January 3, 2013
By BILL MAURO Jr. - Sun-Gazette Correspondent , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

Local band DePotorLand is quite literally the sum of its parts. Joe DeChristopher (the "De" in DePotorland) plays guitar, programs drum loops, and sings. George Potor plays guitar and sings. Fred Strickland (rounding the name out, obviously enough, with "land") plays bass guitar and sings. All three members write music and lyrics. DeChristopher describes their music as often "political, satirical." Nowhere is that more apt than with the group's recent trilogy of recordings and corresponding videos - all of which come as a direct response to the drilling industry cropping up around the area's natural deposits of Marcellus Shale, or 'fracking' in common parlance.
