In Memphis

by The Weisstronauts



The "In Memphis" EP was recorded almost entirely live at historic Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee during a brief stop in the band's June 2008 tour. Engineered by Jeff Powell (Big Star, Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers, etc.), and mixed by Pete Weiss (at Verdant Studio in Vermont), this 4-song EP catches the band in a creative and unguarded chunk of time. The rhythm section of Jeff Norcross and Nathan Logus particularly shine, as do the the spontaneous guitar solos of George Hall, Kenny Lafler, and Pete Weiss. Definitely a new and different kind of Weisstronauts recording, this CD release is strictly limited to 300 "hand numbered' copies.

The Weisstronauts Boston, Massachusetts

The Boston-based Weisstronauts are a difficult-to-pigeonhole instrumental rock band employing three electric guitars.

"Then there’s the Weisstronauts, who toss major surf rock influences into a blender with everything else they’ve ever even sort of liked and pull out songs built on combinations that look insane on paper but absolutely kill once you hear them."
