Sound Magic 2

Rider Sturgeon Rough Mix

Behold this jam rock odyssey, people!
That's my band, The Thumbless Hitchhikers, just jammin out on an average Tuesday night. Last night in fact. This hasn't really been mixed or really f'd with at all. This is more or less straight off the board. I pretty much did what that guy up there is doing when I heard it just playing back raw. Yeah, there's a couple mistakes and a few things could be better, but holy crap I can't believe how good this is.

Sometimes you just get sounds without trying. Those are the best ones usually.

Mixed & Mastered @ BootyQuake.

downloads are free, CDs also free (at the shows!)

I'm mighty proud of this y'all!

This three song demo is something that my band, The Thumbless Hitchhikers, has been working on in earnest for the past month or so.

In addition to playing keys, I engineered, mixed and mastered it ... and you can tell ... dem drums on LA Woman! (LOL). It was a learning experience, and I've gotta say the sounds we did get, while not perfect, are fo' sho' pretty damn great.

We're gearing up to hit the gig circuit around town pretty hard. It promises to be a jammy summer, my peeps!

You can download the demo for free off our bandcamp page, or just give it a listen right here:

'Course if you're a true fan, you'll want a physical disk for your retro CD collection. You can get those at our shows!
