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. But 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 only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
