N. Hollywood, CA (February 3, 2005)–Megatrax Production Music, Hollywood’s premier supplier of original, high-quality production music for film, broadcast, advertising and multimedia, has announced the release of its newest original CD production, Indie Rock. The announcement was made by Megatrax co-founders JC Dwyer and Ron Mendelsohn.
Described as “an adrenaline-fueled frenzy of garage, punk and indie rock styles,” Indie Rock was produced by Pinch, drummer of U.K. punk band The Damned, and recorded at the famed Mouse House recording studio in Altadena, CA. An exciting artist-driven project, the CD features members of several other punk bands contributing their talents, including guitarist Steve Soto from The Adolescents, bassist Warren Renfrow from Manic Hispanic, and singer Sean Wheeler from Throwrag.
Regarding the new Megatrax CD release, Pinch exclaimed, “If you need a balls-out backing track from a bunch of genuine punk rockers, Indie Rock is the way to go!”
Indie Rock showcases a variety of styles including modern cutting-edge punk rock (as evidenced by the song Brain Drops), classic ’70s Clash-style songs (i.e. White Riot), psycho-billy, surf punk (a la Dick Dale) and garage howlers.
The sessions were recorded and mixed by Richard Mouser, owner of The Mouse House. Reflecting on the process, Mouser remarked, “It was fun coming up with a number of different guitar tones. We used a variety of vintage amps, and various miking techniques, including room mikes, to create a colorful atmosphere.”
