New Album “3” and New Tour Dates

Posted on by rgc

Q: How do you follow-up a four-song 7”?
A: With a two-song full-length.

One song per side, this radio-format-challenged record will come out January 22, 2013 on Chaperone Records.  Side A “Can’t Walk Out” is the crown jewel of recent RGC live shows with it’s repetitive, building, almost free, freakout – so far, probably the most accurate recording of what the band brings to the stage.  Side B “Seven” sees the more sprawling side of the band – haunting, epic, and enhanced throughout by guest guitarist Nels Cline.  These songs were tracked live, playing together in the same room, one take each.

A friend of mine used to play Frank Zappa’s “Uncle Meat” at 16 rpm all the time.  How do you recover from that?

You don’t.
