    Nice to hear live drums! Producers these days often don't even use real instruments, and it often times degrades the song. Great lead singles to kick off your album. I'll definitely take a look at your album.

    alright battlegun!

    appreciate the review and support.

    yes, all real instruments here, it's just the only way this album would have worked.
    glad you dig it!

    so, this new album has live drums.


    my last two albums, were a combination of programmed superior drummer tracks, and some loops created in Sony Acid....


    those tracks sound pretty rockin,
    but of course,
    are missing some of the 'sav voir faire' that really good live drums have......


    now, this guy that did the tracks for me, he's a pro..
    plays gig stem in DFW area, plays for the local symphony, can play any style....

    and when he did his tracks, he was playing along to my demos, which were done on top of a drum machine.



    he managed to put all kinds of swing and feel on top of those very straightforward drum machine grooves,
    and to me, that's the testament of a really good drummer.....
    somebody that can, when force to, play dead on time, even with a metronome,

    but still makes you want to groove.

    bad @ss.

    ANOTHER TUNE:

    "Take It All", from the new Bats Brew album "Trouble"




    this is the 2nd song on the album,
    it's about someone that's very hungry.
    LOL

    here's a pic of the original artwork i did for the album cover:

    COVER 1 BLACK — Postimage.org

    it's acrylic on glass.

    i used two 12"x12"pieces of glass separated by rubber bumpers at the corners.....
    made about a 1/4" gap between the glass...

    i used gold rice paper as the base, and painted the text on one pane of glass, which is on the top...
    and the bat on the 2nd pane of glass, which is in the middle.

    outside, using a DSLR camera, in natural sunlight, i got real shadows, over a period of time and rotation of the art to the sun, settled on this one.

    another song link:

    "Long Journey"




    inspired by a true event,
    most folks can relate!

    this is a acoustic/electric hybrid, in open tuning, with some spacey slide work and of course,
    live drums.
    njoy!
