“Bare Tones” Quick Q&A
QUESTION 1 – The new ELM TREASON album, coming out for the Christmas season, is called BARE TONES. In two sentences, tell us about it.
ANSWER 1 – It’s essentially a live album featuring Andy and Bobby plowing through their live set on just two acoustic guitars, without editing, without overdubs. The performance was also filmed, so it will be available on DVD and/or Bluray.
QUESTION 2 – How many songs will be included?
ANSWER 2 – There will be 15 total songs on the standard release. The vinyl issue will be a double album. There will be two bonus tracks from the same performance available as part of a special pre-order campaign, making a total of 17.
QUESTION 3 – When do pre-orders for BARE TONES begin?
ANSWER 3 – Before October 8th. Not sure of the exact date. But no later than that date.
QUESTION 3 – Does this shirt make me look fat?
ANSWER 3 – No. Of course, not.
Jingles, TV Themes and other gems!
It isn’t just songs on the radio or tunes from our collections that stick to our musical bones. Sometimes commercial jingles, TV theme songs or incidental music from programs we watch can be just as infectious as our favorite albums.
Here are four favorites off the top of our heads. (There are SO MANY to choose from).
Got a favorite TV theme? Commercial Jingle?
Let’s hear about it!
The Oscar Mayer bologna song…
Sometimes you feel like a nut – Almond Joy and Mounds…
Theme to Maude…
Theme to Peter Gunn…
Wish we could’ve seen them live….
We’ve posted this topic on our Facebook page before, but we thought we’d give it a pop here..
Assuming your time machine is in good working order, and you could witness one band or artist doing something (playing live, recording a specific track, rehearsing, you name it)at any time in history, what would it be?
I (Andy) will give you an example of my top choice….
I would go back to a Beatles gig in Hamburg, Germany (circa 1961), BEFORE they were famous, when they were learning their craft, playing seven or eight hours a night of high powered rock and roll, before the suits, before the screams, to watch them in action. Not only would that be amazing for me (being a bonafide Beatlemaniac), but afterwards, you could sit with them, buy them a beer (or three) and talk music.
No fame. Easily approachable.
What do you think? What’s yours?
