Recording this album began in the dead of winter with a TV monitor set up in the living room of Wendy's apartment. The video was cued to a murder scene in Alfred Hitchcock's film Blackmail. They picked up their instruments, guitar and bass. Wendy pressed the record button on the 4-track. Their music unfolded in a collaborative response to the tension on screen. This is a track off Guitar & Bass Actions, the debut album by HORDE OF TWO, an instrumental group made up of Mecca Normal guitarist David Lester and solo bassist Wendy Atkinson.
HORDE OF TWO lives in Vancouver, Canada and plans to tour in the Summer and Fall of 2009. For more info and to listen to some of the tracks go to: http://www.myspace.com/wendyampdavid
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
