Terry Eason

Terry Eason - Sentimental Vanity

Garage D'or #018 | $15.00 postage-paid.
On "Sentimental Vanity" Terry Eason has managed quite a trick – he’s produced his most polished and yet rawest recording to date. This disc expands the easonic soundscape with the use of grand piano, string quartet and layers of vocal harmonies while continuing with his inventive guitar and master songcraft. Various influences pop up: you might hear Beatles, Kinks, Queen, Wilco, They Might Be Giants, Flaming Lips, Todd Rundgren, XTC, Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Elton John or even Prince. His best effort yet.

The Summer People

The Summer People

Garage D'or #011| $8.00 postage-paid
A good rock-n-roll song make your troubles go away, strip away the inhibitions and just make you want to get down. The Summer People are about just that. They are a group of musicians from Minneapolis, Minnesota that have a lust for creating the most rocking, groovy hard rock this side of the Midwest. Saturated guitar tones teetering on all out fuzz, rumbling bass that hits you right in the chest, pummeling drums that snap with wild abandon, and insightful vocals belting out with passion for a world gone mad.

 

The Blood Shot

The Blood Shot

Garage D'or #010| $8.00 postage-paid
The Blood Shot was born of fire. The fire known as rock and roll. Worshippers at the alter of all things Thin Lizzy they are. Do you know what it's like to have your soul shaken? The Blood Shot legacy was born of necessity and is fueled by disgust. The "Brotherhood of No Shame" is on the prowl looking for children to spoil and prepared to lay waste to all those in way. The band's most recent testimonial/debut long player "Wake up and Die Right" is only the beginning. The Blood Shot are currently working on songs for their next offering. The band's sound is gritty and raw as it is hard and heavy. They dig their Maiden as much as their Yardbirds, you see. Humble Pie ala mode.
