Dedicated to the memory of Russ Strutt (1947-2015). I recently inherited my father's guitar as well as his pedals, including a Boss RC-2 Loop Station. I recorded this music while trying to figure out how it works. Russ was a pretty fair country picker and wouldn't have used it like this, but I think he'd have been pleased to know I was doing something with it.
Recorded at home by Joe Strutt, May 28 - June 1, 2015 with the following tools: Realistic Concertmate-500, Boss Loop Station RC-2, Boss Super Chorus CH-1, Danelectro PB+J Delay, Danelectro Hash Browns Flanger, Buddha Machine II, Edirol R-09HR, Audacity 2.1.0.
"No More Dancing in the Sun" contains elements of "Dancing in the Sun", written and recorded by Russ Strutt in 2006.
Arachnidiscs Recordings Extra Limited Runs is a series of micro-batch, home-brewed cassettes ranging from 5-15 copies per release. In some cases, another small run may be dubbed if there is sufficient demand but don't count on it. Don't sleep, pounce!
Shimmering drones and angular melody lines dance and collapse against hazy ambiance and fractured glass surfaces; ecstatic meditations give way to deep noir melancholy and fiery avant expressionism. Arachnidiscs
"...a real feeling of exploration .... Some are busy with bells. Some are barely there...a very soft, spiritual atmosphere that should be your next soundtrack for falling asleep into lucid dreaming." Arachnidiscs
