Im very excited to be putting out the first of three EPs, entitled Mood Food Cafe. This turned into a country record, with the help of some great guest musicians, including Neil Fitzgibbon, Bean Dolan, Dave Hastie and Mick Cronin. You can download the EP below and name your price for it—-you can pay whatever you think its worth! There will be a very limited edition run of cds printed on cardboard digiback with three artwork illustrations by the immensely talented Marcus Gunnar Pettersson. You can pre-order your hard copy of the CD here .
As we’ve been recording the three EPs that will be launched one after another in the next few months, I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce (and thank!) all of the awesome, talented and lovely musicians that were willing to plough their way down to the most remote corner of the country to be a part of this adventure! We’ve had serious, straight-faced sessions trying to get a technical fiddle part down, all the way to big jam-outs; getting experimental with xylophones, weird microphone placements and homemade walnut liquer. Its been a trip! So in case your eyesight is too poor for the tiny print in the liner notes, here’s the line-up of the upcoming EPs.
Bean Dolan on upright and electric bass Neil Fitzgibbon on fiddle and bouzouki
Brian Murphy on electric lap steel Andy Wilson on backing vocals
Dave Hastie on backing vocals Irene Dunne on backing vocals
Mick Cronin on drums The Wheels!
A big thanks to Bean, Irene, Neil, Andy and Dave for coming all the way to Bantry Bay and laying down some monster parts. Also a huge thanks to Brian and Mick for letting me rock out in their awesome studio in Drumlish and for providing the necessary groove and electric growls to the recordings.
Now that you’ve met the cast, its time to hear the tunes! Give us a few weeks and we’ll be putting them out as they come, hot from the press!
