'Rough & Ready' by Bandtraxs and The Trenton Independents


PRESS RELEASE


'Rough & Ready' (Album)
Twelve badly written, produced, mixed and mastered instrumentals by Carl Dixon
 for Bandtraxs productions

Performed by

BANDTRAXS & THE TRENTON INDEPENDENTS






Bandtraxs are delighted to release this terrible album showcasing twelve badly written, produced, mixed and mastered songs from the last twenty years never officially released before. 

These productions have a 60's Detroit and 70's Philly feel and utilise real drums on some tracks recorded in Philly for example. Elements on other tracks were recorded in Los Angeles, whilst others use 'The Drummers of Motown' on the rhythm tracks. All the other musical elements were produced in London, England.

In essence, these songs are now ready for vocals and a more fuller production in the future. This album is showcasing the songs potential with a view to exploiting them further.


'Caesar's Reply' was written around 2011/2012 and was originally called 'The night we called it a day', but a search proved there was another song already with this catchy title. 'Stretchin' Out' commenced it's first journey around 2000 with some Salsoul samples which were free with a magazine called 'Future Music'. They invited writers to contribute a song using the samples in a competition they had organised. At that time there were simple lyrics, but not used here and doubt they ever will be again.
