Sheep Fiends – Blowing Away

Album #: 95

Recording Dates: 2015 – 2018

Release Date: 2018

Catalog: SF


The new Café Royd studio got settled and our pace of jamming picked up. All this new Sheep Fiends raw material necessitated a lot of mixing work which Brian C. and I both took on with gusto. This increased activity led to a very strong collection in Blowing Away. Three ten minute plus epics center this release; surrounded by nine earworms from another time.

Three Track Sampler

Track 03 – Close to the Opening (Sheep Fiends) – Sid makes a rare appearance at our Chicago studio to spread a bit of his wisdom. A crunchy distortion provides an invigorating and upbeat musical experience.  [Scratch on Guitar]

Track 04 – You Dropped From the Sky (Sheep Fiends) – Powerful drums and distorted mandolin provides the main riff. There’s plenty of time to stretch out and at least 18 styles of guitar provide color to Paul’s lengthy yet cohesive sci-fi story. Will you step outside?  [Scratch on Guitar]

Track 06 – Workin’ at the Air Team (Sheep Fiends) – A true tale of middle class struggle. Sing along now: “they didn’t want you to have health insurance…”  [Scratch on Vocals]
