“As Big As You Can Get It!” is online

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Grinding out the hits, er, songs

We’re releasing our third record, “As Big As You Can Get It!” online today.

You know, because it’s 6/9.

We’re boldly stepping into the 21st century:

  • Listen to full-length previews at music.drunkdude69.com
  • Name your own price for downloads if you like the music and want to contribute to our efforts
  • Download the music for free if you choose
  • We’re applying that to all three of our releases

Hmm, all this “bold stepping” is making us thirsty! While we go get a libation, we hope you’ll check out the new tunes!

Low low price

Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight & the Pips, The Supremes, The Temptations, Four Tops and more. Those are some goood sounds for that low price. Or maybe it’s just this Fleetwoods 45.

We are very, very excited.

Free downloads: Afternoon R&R Themes

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

"You can only hope to hear me on your radio..."

We’ve posted both the regular and extended versions of the theme song for ESPN Cleveland radio’s drive-time sports talk show “Afternoon R & R“. Our thanks to the folks at WKNR 850 AM, especially to hosts Mike Reghi and Kenny Roda.

As we’ve detailed several times before, the theme song is based on the DD69 track “It’s Alive” (released on the album Wigs & Liquor). We collaborated with Jay Goodman of Skinny Moo to create a new melody and lyrics to lay over the music, and Kenny Roda threw his hat into the ring by adding some of the extended version lyrics.

Thanks to everyone involved – we’re always excited about collaborating and getting our music to a wider audience.

You can download the theme songs for free here.

June happenings

Blue skies on Mars. Finally.

Ahh, it finally stopped raining here in Cleveland. It was getting just about biblical with the precipitation, but we finally seem to be getting some summer sun.

With that bright and cheery fact in mind, we are thrilled to release our third album “As Big As You Can Get It!” this month. We’ll be doing an online release with minimal fanfare on June 9th (which also happens to be our frequent collaborator Jay Goodman’s birthday – happy birthday Jayfronius!).

We’ve got more in store for the month, so we hope you’ll stop back a few times to check things out!
