It had been long time since the last night I shared mixing board with my friend Dra Feelgood, aka Veronica. We had been together with 4 Hands from Hell playing some tunes in Xmas, but wasn’t the same. We together work together very well, and our feel free philosophy seems to work better and better.
I was really in the mood for Saturday night session @ Psycho R&R club, for being the Record Store Day, and especially because some close friends had confirmed their attendance, so the motivation required was fulfilled and I wanted to have lots of fun.
I think what it’s really interesting is that we have very different musical backgrounds and tastes. Veronica is more into classics, more blues and country rooted music, and I, on the other hand, was raised into the 90s sounds, you know, Seattle scene, stoner, punk rock and the trends my favorite magazine used to remark most. Thus, if you get the chance to attend one of our sessions might listen to The Rolling Stones, Hank III and Whitesnake, but also Warrior Soul, Orange Goblin or The Wildhearts can blow your head. As we see it, and as long as we get the audience high spirited, anything goes.
And seems that we succeeded, as I remember many people coming to the board, not only for requests, but also to congratulate us for our musical choices. You can imagine what effect caused upon us to be flattered. No better upper, that I can tell.
As you already know from some time, I’m trying to keep track of the set list of the songs I play, not only for the record, but also for publishing the list here and create a playlist, and to be aware of mood, my choice in certain moment and the way I create certain situations.
I’m glad things are changing, and I’m super proud of improvising 100%, so every session is like a challenge, and I’m glad I’m starting to add stuff I hadn’t considered before.
Unfortunately euphoria, party time and the booze, only allows me to write down my selection of songs, thus in a playlist, it might look weird.
I’ve created this playlist on Spotify, It’s not a problem you can stop, but there are some songs missing. The Hellacopters’ Grande Rock album is not available, Demolition 23 does not exist, and I haven’t been able to find Slave To The Grind anymore. So here you are the actual tracklist of songs I played @ Psycho.
I really hope you like them

Fingers crossed for a new session ASAP, I really can’t wait too long.
