ELWAY / THE HOLY MESS - Gratis Akustik-Split

 

Über die Kollegen von Death To False Hope Records gibt es die EP der beiden Frontmannen Tim Browne (ELWAY) und Steve-O (THE HOLY MESS) für umme zum abgreifen.

Ein Statement zum Entstehungsprozess gibt es von Tim Browne:

Over the past few years of playing in our respective shit shows ("bands" for the layman), Steve-o and I have become good buddies and, in the inebriated spirit from which our friendship grew, we give you this record.

It wasn't really planned to be this way, but all of the original songs on Fool's Gold are really offbeat when you consider the sources. I think both of us were trying to do something different and possibly circumnavigate the truly pervasive lameness of forced, awkward Americana that seems to be milling about in the once proud jukeboxes of all my favorite bars. I for one am very pleased with the results. We also covered one of each other's songs, which is cute!

I recorded my four tracks at my house in Fort Collins with the help of my buddy Chris Love (from a spectacular band called Sour Boy, Bitter Girl) and Steve-o recorded his three with his buddy Andrew Clarke in Philadelphia.
