We’re hosting a big album release party for Wild Bill’s solo release!
via Wild Bill:
THE FIGHTING FOR THE TITLE LIMITED EDITION GRAY NES CARTIRIDGE VINYL
It’s called “Fighting for the Title”, and was produced by Kris Wade and myself. We had a lot of fun experimenting with and creating our own samples while sticking with the integrity of the songs, and we are REALLY happy with the results. So happy we are pressing it to vinyl! The artwork (thanks to Dave Creany for the photos and Luke Litman for the cover art and desgin) was inspired by the classic 1987 NES game, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, and the vinyl is designed to look like a cartridge. You will hear classic NES sounds on the record, and soon we will release some videos also inspired by the NES days of the 1980s. I can safely say is this the most ambitious project I’ve worked on yet. I’m very proud of it, and I hope you will run and tell all your friends and strangers to buy one. Once they are gone they are GONE.
Wild Bill & The Lost Knobs
Wild Bill and the Lost Knobs are a high energy Americana rock band from Austin, Texas. Heavily influenced by music from Austin’s trademark 70s “cosmic country” era, the band combines classic country and blues with other progressive styles to satisfy the dancers, the rockers, the rollers, and anyone else who hears them play. They look and sound like they were sent straight out of a time machine from the Armadillo World Headquarters in 1978, and quite possibly smell like it too. The band formed in a slow cooker starting with a singer songwriter show in a coffee shop. That eventually resulted in the band playing their own “Highbilly Happy Hour” residency at the world famous Antone’s.
They released their debut album, The Show, in 2014, and produced three videos to promote it. The video for “The Show” swept top honors over some of Austin’s biggest names at the Austin Music Video Race winning for best art direction, best concept, best use of song, and best music video.
