EleKtriK SunsEt presents 'Weirdo Island'
from the mind of Joey Sunset Gusich!
Recording of this record took place at Last Stop Records, San Francisco. Alex James Muscat was the engineer. Musicians are Joe Gusich on Guitar.Mandolin.Vox.Drums, Accordion & AJM on Bass Guitar. EKKSE's reverb induced sound fetches influences from Rock, Surf, Psychedelia, Pop & Eastern Europe to bring together an original orgasm. ‘Quirky alternative rock which is at times very dark and catchy with lots of little extra ear candy sounds and ideas.'
The Sunset Guitar Sound was made mixing a Blue Fender Stratocaster with a Silver Sparkle Italia Modena Guitar and an occasional Martin Acoustic, Mandolin & Accordion along with Fender Amps.
