Thunderegg remixed

This week Keith’s brother, DJ Yosamite of Dallas, generously provides our song: a special Thunderegg remix featuring elements from “Deliverance from Crack Rock” (from Sweetest One, 2004), “Just Another Joe” (from Universal Nut, 1995), and an ultra-rare 1993 recording of a song called “Clown” (he sampled his big brother’s drums). Big thanks to Yosamite and to all of the Woodfin family for being so supportive of the Egg.

The six-piece debut

This past Friday night, Thunderegg played its first official show in a very long time. We were a six-piece this time: Will, Jake, and Keith, but also Bob Porri (pedal steel), Jonathan Chatfield (keyboards), and Tim Kane (trumpet). We set up right in the middle of the Kehler Liddell art gallery on Whalley Avenue, plied the audience with Miller High Life, and then worked our way through fifteen songs. We weren’t perfect, but often it sounded very cool anyway. The next night we played Portland, Maine, as a three-piece and were about as tight as we’ve ever been. But the future sound of Thunderegg lies in that New Haven set, so that’s where week 27’s song, “In the Loft,” comes from. Like Week 25’s offering, it’s very, very low-fi–but hopefully it will give you a rough idea of where the sound is heading.
