FROM THE SHELVES OF SOUNDSCAPE STUDIO - A collection of rare and unreleased recordings selected from The Rooks' Soundscape Studio era. This now defunct New York City recording studio was home to The Rooks between 1990 - 1996 before closing its doors forever. Included here are alternate takes and/or drastically different mixes of such band classics as "Reasons," "Music Sound Sensation," "In A Pinwheel Spin" and many more. The booklet contains extensive liner notes explaining details for each selection. 18 tracks. A must for collectors.
Who are these Rooks? Do they sing? Have they ever written a power pop classic? Do they paint with sound? Do they believe that music is the universal bond? Do they drink beer? Are they happy in this ever-changing world? Do they dig Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, baseball and Nick Drake? Do they hate the straight-jacketed, close-mindedly thinking, cookie-cutter, creative stomping, shoot-themselves-in-the-foot, waiting for the other shoe to drop, take what you can and dash policies of the music industry? Do they love their fans? Are they from New York City? Should you check them out? The answers are yes, yes, and a shout from the rooftops yes!!! Now how much more positive can you get than that?
