"Got The Goat By The Horns" is the debut album from The World Famous Dirt Mall Rock & Roll Band. What follows is a glimpse into the creation of this landmark recording.
released December 4, 2007
Johnny Anguish plays guitar and sings. Jason Murray plays guitar, too. Jamie Griffith plays guitar, but his is of the bass variety. Derek Madeiros does not play guitar, he plays the drums (including the bass variety). The band used these instruments to create the rock and roll music you hear on this record. They also used a tambourine, bongos and a cabasa. Jason Murray played a guiro!
All of the electric piano, organ and synthesizers parts were performed by Mike Quinn. Remember that name as it will come up again.
"Got The Goat By The Horns" was produced by Dirt Mall and Mike Quinn (see). Mile Quinn recorded, mixed and mastered this record at The Moontower in Cambridge, MA. Jeff Taylor assisted on "Ghosts Descend."
Johnny Anguish wrote the songs except where noted. Please note that Johnny Anguish and Jason Murray wrote "Rows." Also note that Johnny Anguish, Jason Murray and Derek Madeiros wrote "Ghosts Descend."
