BANG BANG (MY FIRE'S FOR YOU)

I WROTE THIS TRACK ON MY IPAD IN THE WINTER OF 2013, IN MONTREAL, CA. I SENT IT TO THE MFICs AND THEY LOVED ITS VIBE. I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DIRECTION FOR THE MFICS. ANDREW JAMES AND I SPENT MANY MONTHS METICULOUSLY FINE TUNING THE MIX. WE SHOT A NEW MUSIC VIDEO WITH THE BLACK MAGIC CAMERA WITH KEVIN JOHNSON. I DIRECTED MY TALENTED BAND AND TEAM OF FILMMAKERS IN CREATING A TIMELESS VISION OF THE MFICS LIVE PERFORMANCE AT EASTWEST STUDIOS. WE RECORDED LIVE TO TAPE AT EASTWEST STUDIOS IN STUDIO 1 AND MASTERED AT CAPITOL RECORDS IN HOLLYWOOD, CA. 

TIGER MAN

I WATCHED ELIVS PRSLEY'S 1968 COMEBACK TOUR ON YOUTUBE AND LOVED IT. THE SONG TIGER MAN PULLED ME RIGHT IN, WITH ITS SOLID OLD SCHOOL TOUGHNESS. I KNEW RIGHT AWAY THAT THIS RAY CHARLES AND RENALD J. RICHARD SONG, WOULD BE THE ONE I COVERED. RECORDED AT CLEAR LAKE AUDIO STUDIOS IN LOS ANGELES, CA WITH THE MFICs AND MASTERED AT CAPITOL RECORDS IN HOLLYWOOD, CA.

WILD RIDE

MY V 8 EL CAMINO ON A SUMMER NIGHT AS THE ENGINE THUNDERS DOWN SUNSET BLVD. THE DISTORTION AND DRUMS WARMS MY CHEST. I HEAD TO MY NEXT SCENE AT MIDNIGHT, FOR A NIGHT CAP WITH THE MFICs. SEX, ROCK N ROLL AND JACK DANIEL'S INTENSIFIES THE AIR, AS ITS GOING TO BE A WILD RIDE TONIGHT. THIS EP WAS RECORDED LIVE TO TAPE AT CLEAR LAKE AUDIO STUDIOS AND MASTERED AT CAPITOL RECORDS IN HOLLYWOOD, CA WITH THE MFICs.

STATIC IN HER HEAD

THE CREATION OF THIS EP WAS A FLASH FLOOD OF STONER ROCK AND INDEPENDENT POWER FUZZ. I HAD A BLAST WORKING WITH MY AMAZING TEAM. PLAY IT LOUD AND ENJOY STATIC IN HER HEAD EP. THIS EP WAS RECORDED LIVE TO TAPE AT CLEAR LAKE AUDIO STUDIOS AND MASTERED AT CAPITOL RECORDS IN HOLLYWOOD, CA WITH THE MFICs.

NEW LIGHT

I LOVE THIS EP BECAUSE OF THE TRANSFORMATION IT WENT THROUGH. WE HAD DAVEY RIELEY REMIX THIS EP TO GIVE IT REAL PRESENTS. THIS IMPORTANT SHIFT, DIRECTED US INTO NEW TONES, FUZZ AND DESERT DRIVE. THE MFICs RECORDED THIS EP LIVE AT SWINGHOUSE STUDIOS STAGE 2 AND MASTERED AT CAPITOL MASTERING IN HOLLYWOOD, CA. 

AMEN

SOBERING AND POWERFUL, AMEN IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE SOUND OF THE MFICS. WE SPENT MANY MONTHS WRITING AND REHEARSING TO UNLOCK THE NEW TRUTH AND SOUNDS OF THESE SONGS WITH MATT VOGT. WARREN HUART MIXED THIS EP AND WHAT AN HONOR AND EXPERIENCE IT WAS TO WORK WITH MR. HUART. AMEN WAS RECORD LIVE AT SWING HOUSE STUDIOS STAGE 2 AND MASTERED AT CAPITOL MASTERING IN HOLLYWOOD,CA.
