Your friendly neighborhood Live at Trackside crew made their way into the depths of the Keith Albee Theater in Huntington to capitalize on an opportunity to film the Spirit Family Reunion before their performance on Mountain Stage that evening. We stalked them after a lunch break to the local record store Now Hear This—thoroughly embarrassed that these fine people were subjected to the world’s shittiest collection of vinyl with the world’s highest prices— and asked percussionist Peter Pezzimenti if they’d be willing to let us film them. Luckily, they agreed. And now you get to enjoy the fruits of this stalking adventure.
Holy cow! Watch this scorcher from Detroit’s The Muggs and daydream about starting your own rock/roll band. If you can come up with a jam as badass as “6 to Midnight” from their album Born Ugly please, by all means, contact Live at Trackside because we’re going to have to hear it.
Rod and Bud lock in a groove during a recording session unfortunately NOT captured during a Live at Trackside filming.
Hey gang, check out our latest dispatch from Bud’s hidden studio nestled between the train tracks and hills of Cabell County. Loves It performs “All We Are” after a little false start. Hit play, sit back, and marvel at the past Live at Tracksides that AREN’T just shots of other camera people.
Tim Lancaster and friends traveled to the fair city of Huntington to record his second album and we happened to capture a take in the making. Please, friends, watch as Tim sings about some fair headed maiden up North or down South or somewhere in between as local ringers Bud Carroll and Jeremy Short fill in on bass and lead guitar respectively.
For the gear geeks on our embarrassingly short followers list, this was recorded entirely with analog equipment live to the tape machine and damn it if it doesn’t sound ok!
Hit play on this latest Live at Trackside and rest assured knowing that your butts will be cleanly kicked off your bodies. Watch as the boys in The Phantom Six overdub some sizzling secondary percussion tracks (pardon the business talk) and drool over Billy Matheny’s beautiful probably-tailored-in-Italy suit and matching shades.
Tell your friends!
Every so often while playing a show in Huntington, West Virginia—if you’re lucky—there will be a very drunk man that, if your music so inspires him, will shout out the inspirational phrase “Shit AND Damn, son!”. I’d like to think that he would shout that out at his glowing laptop screen while laying in bed watching the latest Live at Trackside featuring Detroit’s The Muggs. Here we see them playing the explosively epic Sturm und Drang/Hats Off to Mr. Beardsly which are available on their equally epic and explosive album Born Ugly.
Austin Texas’ super duper cute Loves It! perform “Appalachian Ballad #1” at Trackside Studios.
