With all these pedals laying around, you'd figure there'd be at least one noise band in the house. Well there wasn't for a long time until Joe Kelly and his long-standing friend (and occasional bandmate) John Vitale were watching some DVDs of the Johnny Cash show and decided to start an updated version of the Statler Brothers. They each borrowed a Total Sonic Annihilation pedal and started chaining some of the house pedals into some loops. I heard them tinkering around with some bossa-nova drum machines for a couple of weeks before they decided to go organic and get a real live drummer in the name of David Andrew Moore. David is a drummer, percussionist, composer & educator- not exactly the usual riff-raff for this neck of the woods.
In what should follow in a long succession of MP3s documenting the life and time of the DBA studio players, I'd like to present you with the first Statler Bros. tracks- all recorded live in 1 take! 2 beers max!
