Bobby talks about he band’s sound..and why it matters to him.
More Info on our upcoming LIVE ALBUM
In this edition of GROOVY NOODLES, we’re giving an absolutely exclusive look at the live album we’re planning on releasing around Christmas with a performance of “Uptown Q” from our soon-to-be-released fourth studio album THE VOICE OF TREASON.
The video gives you an idea of how the “movie” will look when done… and the audio gives a taste of how the album will sound… Barebones, honest, straight-forward.
16 total songs.
Thanks to your feedback, we have decided that if we are able to release this album on vinyl, it will be a double album (it comes down to whether or not we can get the records pressed in time. Most places we checked with are on a six-month to one year delivery schedule. We’re still looking).
Based on your input, we decided a two-record set inclusive of all the material is the best way to go.
This will be a very exciting release – CDs, vinyl (hopefully), downloads, DVDs, BluRays, 4K video…
Anyone still do cassettes? (That’s still an option, too).
Your Input: Great Song from “Meh” Band
We’d love to hear from you on this, putting a little twist on last week’s question to you…
Name a song you love from an artist you don’t. We probably have ONE song we like from an artist we otherwise don’t care for.
This could be fun.

Arguably the greatest meeting ever? Colonel Sanders and Alice Cooper?? Yes, there IS a god.
Then and Now
A GROOVY NOODLES exclusive video sneak peak!
As you may or may not know, we recorded an entire ELM TREASON live set a few months back . It was professionally shot and mic’d.
To put out a live album and video release for Christmas.
We post a video every Thursday on our Facebook page of us doing our “two-man thing” (usually us rehearsing into a camcorder), so we decided to take the next logical step.
We wanted to fufill the requests of almost all of you – namely, to put out a record that best represents what Bobby and I (Andy) do when it is just the two of us jamming – and actually do it right, properly recorded and mixed!
The future CD/DVD/BluRay/4K audio/video release will consist of 16 total songs.
Here, for newsletter people ONLY, here is a taste. We are running through a song on our upcoming 4th album THE VOICE OF TREASON album called “Uptown Q.” Bluesy, smooth, alternating guitar solos, a tempo change – and a taste of old New York. Enjoy!

A deliciously CLASSIC cassette ad – a “WONDER”ful flashback to the days of “wider dynamic range” and “far less distortion.”
ONE MORE FUNNY
Another knee-slapper at the expense of the accordion. (Accordion enthusiasts, please don’t send hate mail).
– Andy writes about the band’s brush with a Texas cop.
– The car commercial we did that paid for our guitars.
