The Whiskey Sessions started when three old (by this point) musicians met to get reacquianted and drink som whiskey. The whole think quickly turned into a recurring even about booze, music, and on-the-spot creativity. We get together, pop the cork, and get cracking on writing a song. The goal is to compose, write lyrics, perform and record an entire song in a single evening, preferably before the neighbors start banging on the wall or the audio interface burns up.

We often mix and master when we've had a chance to sober up, but we are proud to challenge ourselves to achieve all of this in a short period of time. And it's a lot of fun too......

Zombie_Rodeo_04.mp3 (mix: johno / adam)

+lyrics

Old and new met at Adam and Jessica's place. A twelve bar blues turned into zombie slaughter. Mad o johno hade the night before been out and about and met Andreas, who got invited to the session without us realizing that he was also a musician. Mad, johno o Andreas were as a result seriously hungover.

Our first attempt was completely uninspired, old and boring blues stuff, but when johno started messing about with running some organ patches through SoftTube's eminent amp simulation effects Adam suddenly became a rock star. Again.
