I figure there’s more than a few guitar fans who would celebrate the news of what is certain to be another fantastic Mike Keneally album. For those “not in the know,” Keneally was Frank Zappa’s guitarist on the doomed 1988 tour, documented by The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life, Make a Jazz Noise Here, and Broadway The Hard Way. Keneally has since gone solo and has turned out one great album after another – and usually each successive one has been better than the last! His last album, the acoustic Wooden Smoke, may just be my favorite (actually, it’s tied with Sluggo!.) Keneally’s brand of guitar work favors showing off his seemingly unlimited skills, but he does so in a musically-friendly way – it’s not just a showcase for his speed.
But enough of that, on to the news.
Pre-Orders Begin For Mike Keneally Band’s DOG Special Edition CD/DVD!
Spring ’04 Release Slated
PRE-ORDER at http://www.moosemart.com BEFORE 12/31/03
AND GET “PUP,” A BONUS CD-R!
PRE-ORDER AT A KENEALLY TAYLOR CLINIC
AND GET YOUR “PUP” TO GO!
Mike Keneally’s first album in over two years is also the recorded debut of the Mike Keneally Band: Mike on guitar, keyboards and lead vocals, Rick Musallam on guitar and vocals, Bryan Beller on bass and Nick D’Virgilio on drums and vocals. It’s a powerful, electric album of music that the fierce foursome has been honing onstage for months, along with the surprises you’ve come to expect on a new Keneally album.
This special edition will also contain a first for Exowax: a region-free NTSC DVD that includes live MKB performances, behind-the-scenes studio footage and several extras. And in the time-honored Exo-tradition, Mike will hand-number and autograph the first 2500 copies. When you pre-order, your credit card will be debited right away and you’ll receive your DOG when it’s released next spring.
When you pre-order the special edition of DOG before December 31, 2003, you’ll also receive PUP with your order– a cool 35-minute CD-R preview of Mike’s upcoming Radio Keneally internet broadcast service, personally assembled, narrarated and labeled by Mike. It features studio and live MKB recordings, MK solo home recordings, and more!
The standard single-CD edition of DOG will be available for purchase when it’s released in the spring.
Get those credit cards out, guitar and good-music fans. While there, be sure and order yourself a copy of the limited edition of Wooden Smoke. Without the second disc, the album wouldn’t feel complete to me. You’re really missing out if you pass up that one.
(you’re also really missing out if’n you don’t head over to unproductivity while you’re out and about.)
