Didn't see that coming! Listening now, duly impressed. The production works in favor of the voice and guitars, it's nice and raw, even if the rhythm section is a bit subdued. Really fine playing! Damn.
Either you or the band on Facebook? Myspace creeps me out. If so, friend me up (Lefty Phillips) so I can share your stuff with my buddies, they'll dig it. Much respect!
Hey man, nice stuff you put up there. If you're into funky basslines, I wrote this a couple years ago as a bass exercise. I'm not throwing it out on the boards yet, but I figured you'd get a kick out of it.
I hear ya. The one time we played there, we brought in about 40 people, his bar was packed, everybody was eating and drinking - but he got upset because our people started calling out for the stuff we usually do and we played it.
Purists. Go figure.
BTW - You gotta come out to a Diesel gig when you have a night off. And I owe you guys a visit, too - as long as it's not @ Bobbique.
fatb0t! Thanks for dropping in on my thread! Really appreciate you taking the time to listen, and comment.
Sadly, the songwriter, bass player, singer, studio owner, record producer and sound engineer are all one and the same. I think we have a unique and interesting sound as a trio, but once the recording process starts, the guy takes his stupid songs and makes them sound like everything else! It's very disappointing. I'm hoping with this tune, he'll hear the magic and try to catch that.
Trios are not for everyone. It takes a degree of fearlessness, and total comfort with space - I loved that the tune put you in mind of Gov't Mule; Warren is a master at playin' nuthin', don't you think? Those guys will play nothing at all and sound HUGE (& they don't lose that quality when they bring in keys). It's like people who need to talk all the time, to drown out their own noisy heads; these people can't play in trios. Stillness, silence, quietude - there's a true trio, right there.
