Here’s a cut off The Muckrakes upcoming CD, Grandiphonia.

Although this version of “Young & Crazy" will NOT be on the CD, I decided to release it on my blog to give you an idea of the music that were working with and revamping.

When the CD is released, compare the two versions. I’m sure you’ll be a lil’ shocked to hear the difference in structure, instrumentation and inflection.

Where I live is about to get creamed by Hurricane Earl this weekend.

Trailer Park Love Story by The Muckrakes, recorded in Richmond, VA. at The Capital Ale & Music Hall.

Sounds like the stack of leftovers in old margarine tubs, wobbling on the wire shelves of a ColdPoint fridge, tilting forward on the cigarette-burned kitchen linoleum of a 1978 single-wide, propped up on chocks cut from a telephone pole in the Goldrun Village Trailer Park.

It’s Thursday, that means “punk rock” mayhem. With that said, here a video of me breaking my collar bone as I played with with The Trauma Dolls. There’s also some blood and broken glass. Good times, good times.

Best thing about being from the south….

The Bottle Babies playing “Kick Out The Jams” by MC5 in Norfolk, VA. @ Club 37th & Zen. I played until my fingers bled that night…literally.

CD COVER DESIGN

Asking help for a CD cover design. The CD is for my band, The Muckrakes. The name of the CD is “Grandiphonia”.

Music style is a mixture of lo-fi Americana rock meeting a stack of leftovers in old margarine tubs, wobbling on the wire shelves of a ColdPoint fridge, tilting forward on the cigarette-burned kitchen linoleum of a 1978 single-wide, propped up on chocks cut from a telephone pole in the Goldrun Village RV park.

We like to stand tall and enjoy stomping strongly through weedy stagnant undergrowth with deftly articulated songs, lyrical stories wrought from heady memories, and music-craft from the backwaters of The Old Dominion.

Anyway, we can’t offer much. But we can offer credit art to the CD on both our website and cover inner sleeve as well as a slew of band merchandise and tickets to every show as well as link and promo from all of our networking sites.

Ya interested?
