Kirby Erickson & Velcro Sheep
Douglas R. Day & Mark Alan Wilson
I was approached by "the Sheep" to record a demo tape in my small analog studio in rural Montana. A week or so later the band showed up on a warm and sunny autumn day, ready to record. After the first long session (and a couple of jugs of my home-made "scrumpy" hard cider), I became a big fan of the Velcro Sheep. The tracks were recorded with two mikes, all acoustic and few over-dubs. We took the base tracks to a studio in Missoula for mixing and mastering and applied some equalization and minimal effects, intentionally staying to the basic essence. It turned out so good I recommended going to CD. What you hear is what you get with the Velcro Sheep. It was a hell-of-a-good time.
Inspiration by Steve Leash and Greg Bechle.
