Along The Roadside
Creepin' Charley and the Boneyard Orchestra
.mp3 board recording from the IMAF Festival June 13, 2009
What you hear is what went through the P.A.
For info, go to
I can't take much credit for the kickass tune here.
I'd never heard them before they played that day.
Basically, I turned it up loud and tried to "stay away from the "suck" knob"!
If you get a chance to see Creepin' Charley and the Boneyard Orchestra, GO!!!
You will not be disappointed!
King Creole is:
Kevin Heffernan - Vocals & all guitars
Mike Strauss - Bass Guitar
Craig (Red) Smith - Drums
Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Floodstage in 2002.
King Creole's "That's Right" is an up tempo Rockabilly song about a woman most men have met in a bar at least once in their lives, and desperately hope to never see again!
Elvis may have left the building, but King Creole, a 3 piece Rockabilly/Blues/Rock band has stepped in to fill the void!
Written by Steve Hurt
Steve Hurt - Guitars & Bass
Travis Brant - Drums
This is a very early FloodStage recording. The song was started in the early 1990's but wasn't mixed until August 2003.
One thing that is unusual about this song is that all the tracks were recorded with Shure SM-57's.
(There wasn't much choice, all we had at the time were SM-57's!)

Fredrick Is A Frightful Fellow

She's Coming Home
A song project for J Hall's Forum at Pro Sound Web
The project was "IMP-4" (Indie Music Project #4)
Participants were to write a song using a (god-awful-too-low-to-ever-stay-in-tune) guitar tuning that was specified on the forum.
Also, everyone used drum tracks provided on the forum rather than recording new drums.
The song was done in a hurry (wrote the chords at 7 p.m., and finished mixing around midnight, on July 4, 2006), but the flutes make the tune worth listening to!
Ace drummer Greg Mrakich dropped by the studio to do some samples of three of his drum kits
(and his most excellent playing)
Here are the results of that session:
Ring Of Fire
Live recording of the band O-Face doing a smokin version of "Ring Of Fire" (ala Sonic Youth!)
Alex Torres on Vocals
Jason Cully on Guitar
Jimmy Slaymon on Bass
Scott McMurray on the drums

Rock on guys!
