Dogs with a Bonus Free Track, Celebrate Your Youth Featuring The TRANSMITTERS.
Fredericksburg Virginia's premier reggae band. Mark D on drums, John Buck on bass, Larry Hinkle on guitar, Moe Marsh on percussion, and the Fredvegus music scene's M.V.P. Jay Starling on keyboards. A few years back, we got together for a set at The Fairgrounds to benefit the SPCA. Later that summer I brought them to Kansas for a set a Wakarusa. We were lucky to play 60 out of our 90 minute set due to an incredible storm that just about shut the place down.
These tunes were recorded at Maymount Park in Richmond, Virginia earlier this spring. Dogs was of course written for Earl and Sheeba, our trusty companions/security guards. They rode around with us in variety of motor homes, from gig to gig. Sheeba retired in 2002 and went to heaven in 2003. Earl carried on without her until late December of 2006. Like the song says, they are immortal so their memories will live on forever. Dogs appears on the "Home" record as well as the “Sight” DVD, which features video footage of the pair.
The bonus track, Celebrate Your Youth, is different from the other 30 times I've released this track. This has a bit of a ska feel to it. I wanted to utilize the punk influence of Mark D and Larry Hinkle with a one of a kind, bad brains closing riff. We practiced this riff for the Wakarusa set, but we got rained out before we got to play it. This was like bringing closure to all of that rehearsing we put in for that fest. Please enjoy
Free Free Free. K.lovedub and the Sunn. New New New. Brand Spankin New.
Recorded live in my basement June 8th, 2010. Scott Sunn on the computer and me on bass, mallet cat, synthe, as well as live sample flying. Samples of Bill Murray borrowed from the movie, Caddyshack. Chevy Chase barely makes an appearance. Just a brief sample of the late electronica experiment in its infantile stage. Please enjoy.
W.orD.S. Williams (Bass), Droll (Guitar), and Sipe (Drums). Newness.
This song appears on the LIVE record featuring Keith Moseley on bass. This version has me on bass and is the final installment of the W.orD.S. one time show that I will be releasing. This is an instrumental song that goes many places. Rock, soca, euphoria (which was interrupted by my thank yous and goodbyes... Damn me) and ends in a fit of rock madness. Hopefully we can do another show together and I will then hopefully obtain another batch of tunes to share with you. Please enjoy.
Continuing on with the W.orD.S. Williams (bass), Droll (guitar), and Sipe (drums). Recorded 3/5/10 at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC. Birdsong is one of my favorite Dead songs to play and listen to. It appears on my stage record. It was also in the first 3 song set that I played with Bob Weir at Red Rocks in 2001. That tape is mixed in with a million other tapes in my music room. I'm hoping to one day unearth that recording and share that version with you as well. This version takes on an exploratory jazz feel. It contains a loose, but rockin’ version of the other one in the middle of it. The other one also appears on the DVD that accompanies the double LIVE record. There, it lives in the middle of the song Gallivanting. It’s a must see with Keith Moseley on bass. This version of the two songs has a bit of an open air about it. I like air. Hopefully you will too. Please enjoy.
