Sheep Fiends – Ziggarnaut Paradox

Album #: 86

Recording Dates: 2010 – 2014

Release Date: 2014

Catalog: SF


This is our final CD recorded at Brian’s amazing Rumpus Room studio. There is a certain sadness to the songs as we end a major era. While largely recorded in 2014 this also features some real bangers from recent years that hadn’t yet been revealed – “Project RATATAT” (2010), “Dan Ryan Shithead” (2011), “Gawdzilla (2012) and the “Ghost Train” (2013) are all particularly unique performances and productions. We would soon take root at Cafe Royd, but never forget my friends. Never forget.

Three Track Sampler

Track 01 – Ziggarnaut Paranormalisisis (Sheep Fiends) – Give a man a meat cleaver and what did you think might happen? I guess we have to trust someone with the slicers now don’t we? But the regret really stings when the chopping gets more personal.  [Scratch on Vocals]

Track 04 – Dan Ryan Shithead (Sheep Fiends) – This was a project that came out wonderfully. I was in the vocal booth at the Rumpus Room and Brian C. was beating on the drums. Other people may have been playing. As I sang in the booth while listening through headphones I recorded the video on my phone. We neglected to officially record this jam but my phone video had my singing plus Brian’s dampened drums coming through the walls. I took this audio and recorded guitars to build more of a song, and then incorporated traffic samples so that we can all relate with one another.  [Scratch on Vocals, Two Guitars, and Sampler]

Track 09 – On My Way (There) (Sheep Fiends) – Sometimes the journey is all we have left. What is “(there)” when we reach the end anyway? A mid-paced cruncher for your imagination.  [Scratch on Vocals & Tambourine]
