We were young. We had a 4-track, a room full of instruments, and several pots of coffee. We'd just learned how to mess with vocals by speeding them up or slowing them down. Things got weird. [more inside]
A Red Hay cover of the Neil Young song... [more inside]
The very last Red Hay song recorded. This was actually one of our first songs, a very Neil Young-ish guitar thing with a weird time signature. After we'd broken up as a band, we all got together one weekend and started messing with the old country-rock stuff, redoing a lot of it with our new keyboard-torturing habit. This was the most radical rethink, and the best outcome.
I used to play bass for a band called Red Hay; we had a serious case of Uncle Tupelo Envy, and our catalog showed it. Get Drunk was one of our better songs... we tried really hard to make the rhythm section sound like a semi-truck motor. Recorded in 1998 in a high school band room in Verndale, MN.
