Garret Factory release - 'The Drive Off the Map' CD

Dear Factory Friends,

Have you ever wondered what kind of music I was writing and playing back in Texas, before I moved to Atlanta, and before there was a Crucial Dread Reggae Band and a Garret Factory & the Whooping Cranes? Besides performing solo Acoustic shows, and playing in Rock & Reggae bands, I developed my showcase band called: Oui B. Cranes which later evolved into Garret Factory & The Drive. Now, we are announcing that we’ve just completed a CD album entitled ‘Garret Factory and ‘The Drive Off The Map’ to celebrate our 10 year Anniversary!

This new album consists of all originals, starting out with 3 studio songs, & followed by 14 songs from Live Shows! Currently my Whooping Cranes® Band continues to play some of these songs, which allows this release to be an up-to-date, as well as reflective project! And even though this CD Release is a ‘Basement Tapes’ album, it Rocks! It’s interesting to note that this new release is a “that’s the way it was” kind of album: no remixing, no additives, no overdubs, no preservatives – just pure raw music! The album was recorded in stereo analog and digitally mastered for the best possible sound quality, which did improve many aspects of the recordings from our shows; due to: different mic placements, different EQ’s, etc, And there’s nothing like the sound of digitally mastered beer-bottles breaking!... It’s energetic Pub Rock, complete with cigarette smoke so thick that you’d think someone turned on a fog machine! This compilation includes magical versions captured Live, as well as bringing the listener directly into the heart & soul of the party with the eclectic audience of ‘Drivehards’!

Interchange Records is proud to add this CD to the catalog! It’s a Real Rockin’ Album of 17 songs – clocking in at over 76 minutes, which constitutes a double-album! I send my heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in helping make this album possible!!!

Many Thanks & Keep Rockin’!

Garret Factory

P.S. Just like our Band, this album is a Party looking for a place to happen! Enjoy!
