Titty Bingo Tune Preview

I’ve been listening to mastered mixes from Titty Bingo’s next release. Cueing up the jukebox, So Cold whacked me like a Buford Pusser 2 x 4 across the gut.

So Cold is a f*cking monster. I wonder if Dahr’s showing the youngsters how to rock?

Freddy’s opening toms on So Cold announce a kick to the head before you’re whisked away on a runaway freight train. Freddy’s drums and Larry Fulcher’s propulsive bass send this song careening down the rails yet their rhythmic skills keep the proceedings from flying apart.

Dahr’s urgent vocals border on unhinged.  He’s a hanging-out-the-window engineer on this out-of-control train and you better clear the tracks.

Then there’s Derek O’Brien’s guitar. Fans of Derek adore his understated, sinewy guitar licks, but this time around, Derek stomps on the throttle and leaves me with my mouth hanging open.

The production lends the right atmospherics (especially Derek’s guitar) which support the song’s attitude.  Dahr co-produces with Andy Johns while Andy mastered and mixed. Steve Chadie does the engineering work.

By the way, no one knows when or where this gem will appear. There’s a distinct chance So Cold won’t fit on the next release.
