When we formed the band on Labor Day weekend back in 1985, it wasn’t pretty. Blasting through Stones and Ramones songs in a gritty rehearsal room shaped like a hallway in the back of long-gone Campbell Music, London Down launched.
And it still ain’t pretty. Nearly 34 years later, our music is still raw. We hit 94 percent of the notes live (we did the math). But we hit them with intensity -- so maybe there’s a cosmic offset of some kind?
Anyway, all this to say we recorded our sold-out “Gnashville” album release party back in March and plan to release a live album from the show this summer. While a mixing engineer in Nashville sprinkles alt-rock pixie dust on the tracks, we’ve decided to go ahead and share with you a rough mix of one of the songs.
“Screaming Skull Twist” was the last song we performed at the show. It’s an older song of ours, but if you like raw, high energy punky rock, this should melt your creepers. Enjoy! And do let us know what you think.
In other news, we plan to release a couple of singles in the coming months before entering the studio to record another album. We’re really pumped about the new songs!
Thanks for your support!
