FVCK THE BOZOS
Six-track EP recorded and mastered for Portland band, Backbiter
Recording, mixing, mastering
The game plan for tackling Backbiter's Fvck The Bozos was the same as their style — quick and dirty. The idea here was raw passion, not necessarily a top-performance.
We tracked all the instrument tracks live and in under three hours at my basement studio. Second guitar tracks were then overdubbed and the band called it a night. Following that, there was almost a month-long break around the holidays before the band could get back to record the vocals.
The goal while mixing the tracks was to preserve the band's aggression and energy. To accomplish that, I blended a few Drumagog tracks into the drums to give them some punch and clipped the vocals through a couple of tape saturation emulators. The results are hard-hitting, raw-punk tracks that don't make any sacrifices to tone or quality.
Fvck The Bozos has been released as a cassette tape by Dirt Cult Records.
