Howdy folks. Our CD launch is fast approaching. You can buy your tickets right here on the gig page. It’s going to be awesome. This band that I am lucky enough to be playing with is something to behold! We also have very special guests, Charles Jenkins and Matty Vehl along for the ride. I’m really looking forward to playing again. We don’t get to play enough but when we do, it’s always thumping.
The track that I’ve attached, Shut It Down, was written at 8.00 on the night of our 12-tracks-in-a-day recording session at Hothouse. I decided that the record needed another fast track, so I quickly chucked a few chords together and let the band weave their magic on the rest. Mark came up with the uber-cool bass line, Nicky with the guitar riffs, Cal drove the drums like a man possessed and Ed soared over the top on the pedal steel; plus it was all topped off with a dose of Token Youths horns goodness. It was spontaneous composition at its best!
