As much as Bubba D loved playing the tracking sessions Dino loved the mixing sessions with the post crew DQW (dino/quincy/weber). When we finally dug into the studio “concept album” (#4- yup, we’re beating a dead horse/the sargent bubbadino sessions), we used George Martin’s book (with a little help from my friends), about the making of Revolver/Sgt. Pepper’s/Magical Mystery Tour, as the script for the entire project. J.A. Deane

One thought on “The Bubbadinos | Yup, We’re Beating A Dead Horse | Zerx

  1. The latest dispatch from this New Mexico band is another fascinating collection of songs, most of them by Mark Weber, whose vocals continue to have an appeal that a listener not yet jaded by the ways of the commercial world might even assume might have a place on Top 40 radio. He certainly is charming, and the varied and sometimes intricate backup from his musical associates doesn’t hurt a bit. As seems to be the way with this group, some of the tracks depart from the song norm completely in order to present performances such as a multi-tracked collage by J.A. Deane, himself a well-respected performer on the avant-garde scene as well as seeming to be a member of this band, although a secretive one. Choices of covers are good, including a fine tune by the underrated songwriter Jim Lauderdale. Several tracks of poetry also show that the group is aiming at a sophisticated, intelligent audience, which all those interested in creative American music surely hope the group will find.
