Rockin Rod's 3 Song Sampler
I had these 3 killer tracks that I didn't necessarily think would go together but I thought music listeners would like them anyway. So I took um to 17th Street Studios and had Lewis do some mixing magic and then put together "Rockin Rod's 3 Song Sampler". "The Blue Rocket" is a track I started a long time ago and just recently finished. It's kind of a cosmic political reggae rock ballad. When I stumbled across a good rhythm track from a while back I decided to re-work the lyrics to say what made sense in 2009. Then I added a keyboard and a haunting slide guitar part for flavor. I really had to go deep for this one but it was worth it!!! "Supermoto 1" was an instrumental thing I did for the extreme sports movie "Severe Supermoto". Knowing I was creating music to go along with images of radical motocross footage, I tuned my heavy metal strat to drop D, hooked up a really fat sound and jammed off an edgy rhythm track. Then I threw in some wild lead guitar runs. I was stoked when I saw how well it worked with the motocross footage. "Huntress" started as an excuse to play harmony lead guitar but then evolved into a hard driving metalish tune with colorful imagery of "The Huntress, Creature Of The Night". Having lyrics like "there'll be no escape tonight, she wants you alive", a rockin rhythm section, harmony voodoo guitar accents and jungle toms, this tune will grab you and shake you and leave a wild hook line in your head for the rest of your days. Go ahead, give these tunes a test drive and I know you'll enjoy listening to um as much as I enjoyed playing um. Rock On!!!
