New album nearly done

Tis the winter of our discontent? Sorry Will Shakespeare, but we’ve actually been having a ball putting the finishing touches to our forthcoming second album – working out cover ideas, letting Roscoe loose to nail a few final scorching lead breaks, shoving Leroy armed with shakers and tambourines in front of a mic, and convincing O’Mara to pick up a guitar and join in on the odd track!

We’re looking to release before the end of the year, but stay tuned for some exciting news (key words – vinyl, pre-release, unreleased tracks!)

Reel experiments

We spent a curiously interesting morning at Sing Sing recently with producer Shane O’Mara and studio boss Kaj Dahlstrom fiddling with assorted reel-to-reel tape machines in pursuit of an old school flanging effect for one of our new tracks. There was much hi-fiving when we finally heard the result – a very respectable albeit slightly unhinged 60’s sounding middle eight that will hopefully blow a few minds…

New guitar

After a musical lifetime of religiously sticking to Fender guitars (his trusty ’72 Tele and a 60’s reissue Jazzmaster), Tanner has relented after falling in love with the rowdy humbuckin’ Gibson SG sound during recording sessions for the new album. He’s now the proud owner of a rare kinda wood- grained, kinda sunburst model that’s positively, brutally rocking. Prepare to be shaken, and stirred!
