Buckcherry in Concert!
Over the past few weeks we’ve mentioned that we’re changing studios and while that won’t affect you much at all as a listener; the one difference will be the distinct sound of the myriad live, electric performances we’ve done there over the past five and a half years. We’ll still present live, plugged-in shows, but our new studio will have a slightly different sound than Valley Sound, where we are now. All studios have their own sound and vibe. Both home bases are excellent for us; it’s akin to choosing which German luxury car you want. Everyone has their favorite and for Buckcherry there’s something about Valley Sound, owner/engineer, Jamie Sutton, the gear and the sound of the room that gets them lit up. They performed live for our Twenty-Fifth Anniversary four and a half years ago, debuted their “Black Butterfly” album with a live performance of seven new songs and upon hearing we were going to be moving on to a new location they wanted to be the last band to plug in, kick ass and be the only artists to ever play there live three times. And you better believe the third time is a charm because the band absolutely killed it in this 55 minute incendiary live set. Learn more about the So Cal based band at Buckcherry.com, MySpace.com/Buckcherry and the other now usual web suspects. You can also hear two advance songs on the Rockline website, “Lit Up” and “It’s A Party”. Truer words were never spoken.
What you hear is their raw live show with no overdubs, no computer tricks, no sweetening in any way. It was a blow the roof off the place, sweaty, profanity laced, nasty, down and dirty Rock & Roll concert by at band at the top of their game. The show that we’ll broadcast on radio is edited for language, but that’s it. The crazy thing about “bad” language in the good ole USA is that most of us talk that way and even though there are some bleeps and a few words reversed via Pro-Tools, we all know what those words are. So why do we have to do this, Mr. FCC? Huh? So, what we’re going to do is make both versions available on our website, the radio version AND the unedited as it happened live performance. It’s impossible to verbalize just how good Josh Todd, Keith Nelson, Stevie D., Jimmy Ashhurst and Xavier Muriel of Buckcherry sounded on this late October afternoon. We’ll let you listen on your own and soak in the whole incredible experience. Listen live on your favorite station and then listen again unedited on our website. Get ready to rock because Buckcherry’s here to take names and kick some tail exclusively, and for the last time at Valley Sound, on the next ROCKLINE!
