Six Hits of Sunshine and the Bruises to Show is a collaborative effort of six musicians under the direction of ambient/experimental composer Michael D. Peck.
The project began in 2001 as a postal collaboration, trading sounds back and forth with members James Keeler (WILT) and Aaron Jones. This process continued until 2005 when the six members converged to record live source material. The material was later manipulated, editted and tracked by Peck and the outcome are these 'Six Hits'.
What's more is that MAGGOTAPPLEWONDERLAND is a revolving member project where members are encouraged to bring their own unique talents to the table thus enabling MAW to focus on a continuing evolving sound that defys genre, but admittedly lurks in the shadows of one's own conscious.
'Six Hits' is predominately an instrumental album featuring guitar, bass, drums, percussion, found objects, synthesizers, theremin, shortwave radio transmissions and field recordings.
Fans of Mr. Bungle's Disco Volante, 1970's era porno-funk and post-modern funeral jazz will no doubt fall in love with this release.
