ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Tremors:
Blending old-school jazz and country styles with an "alt-rock" flair, The Tremors have found a unique niche with audiences in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Members Parker (country boy) and Scott (jazz cat) first began playing together in early 2002 and were later joined by Matt on drums/percussion and Tom on Bass Guitar.

Parker Nusbickel:
hails from the steamy low country of the deep south where the notes slide around on your tongue like the oil slick on your grandpa's coffee. spoons out verses that make you think about you instead of him. tells stories of addiction, lost-love, child abuse, and america's thick neck losers. has been crashing on your couch for the past three weeks.

Scott Woeckel:
Originally from Chicago Illinois, Scott came to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to explore it's musical possibilities. He has since earned a BA in Jazz Guitar Performance & Ethnomusicolgy from the University of California, Los Angeles and has been a sought after session guitarist, producer, and composer, working with many top artists. Coming full circle, Scott is enjoying a return to his roots with The Tremors, where his playing ranges from greasy down home blues, to psychedelic redneck jazz.

Matt Muñoz:
Born and raised in Texas, Matt has been playing drums since the age of 11. He went to college to study music, but still doesn't like Gregorian Chant much. He cites Jeff Buckley, Buddy Rich, Dave Weckl, Michael Hedges, The Smiths & Wilco as musical influences. He loves pie, his mother & Shiner Bock beer.

Tom Connolly:
Growing up in San Diego California and venturing out on his own at an early age, Tom draws from life experiences more than hours plugged in. His influences include the Sex Pistols to Johnny Cash and everything in between. Having played in bands around California, the one thing that has been a common thread is the honesty of the music and the places it can take you.

I'm on the Run!
This song was so fun... from the breakneck, way too fast tempo to the overly twangy vocals to the 4 second harmonica interludes. I loved it! Some people will probably bitch about the lyrics of this song, but I thought that they were funny and witty (I don't even have a gun, how am I goin to hurt someone?). Too many people get wrapped up in writing 5 minute, "deep" songs that they forget about the power of a simple, fun songs like this one. Keep up the good work!

7 songs, one happy customer
I was given this disc, cause I love songs abut drinking. This disc is about a whole lot more than that, too drunk being my favorite, it's about coming to terms with yourself, your relationships and discovering truth that lies at the source of all pain. If you can get past the fact it's a live record, and a good quality one, you will not be disapointed with the poetry that lies within. I think everysong deserves a star, but the site only lets me choose five, so five stars for the tremors, but they deserve all seven.

Shakin' LA Proper
Hold your horses Californians! There's more pressing issues than a lil' old gubernatorial recall. You've got some real music invading Los Angeles proper, shaking the pillars of plasticity with each lick, each wail into the harp, each pulse from the stand-up bass and drum kit. The Tremors distilled their hybrid country/roots/jazz/alt sound into a seven song shot glass called "Live at Hallenbecks." The songs are well-written and exceptionally performed. Some of my favs include the jazzy "Club Hoppin' Darlin" ("45 minutes and 7 Parliaments and I'm finally at the bar") and the beautiful "Bluebirds" which centers around a "Byrds"-ian riff, before blasting off with with a mix of power chord angst and bluesy tone, until it returns to that delicate riff. It is solid musicianship, emblematic of the CD. You won't need a chaser.

Awesome Can't Stop Listening To It

Whisky drenched Southern rock is good to the last drop
Take two parts whisky-soaked southern rock, one part country, and one part jazz-inspired guitar. Combine in your favorite football souvenir plastic cup and mix well. There you have it: "The Tremors: Live at Hallenbeck's General Store." This is good, honest music. My two favorites are "On The Run," about a fugitive who wants Mama to hurry up and cook them eggs so he can get the hell out of there, and the start-out-slow-then-rock-out "Bluebirds." Some of the lyrics may make you a little sad (e.g. "Someone said absence makes the heart grow fonder, but all it did was make her forget"), but I suppose you can't have honesty without a side dish of sadness. This album does a great job of capturing the experience of seeing The Tremors live (which I highly recommend, by the way). Well done, y'all.

straight no chaser!
I have been listening to this cd for a while now, and all I can say is I can't wait to hear what the future brings from this band. The songs are all really different, the guitar playing is out of this world, and the harmonica and whisky overtones in the lyrics make this cd scream drink me drink me!!!

Max

Yeehaw and Wahoo!
This CD makes me wanna put on a t-shirt, crack open a beer and smoke a cigarette. It's also great truck-driving music. The musicianship is tight, the lyrics are a gas, and the songs keep getting better with each listen. I've let a bunch of friends borrow this CD for a spin, and they love it, too. Outstanding job, Tremors - please make more music like this. There isn't enough to go around.
