    We love raw sound and we always record our albums playing live in the studio, without adding further overdubs, the music that we listen comes from Sun, Chess, King, Vocalion, Okeh and many other relics from the past on which you can hear very awful and poorly quality recorded sides that can flip your soul a thousand times. And you wouldn´t give a hot damn, I grant you that.

    When we decided to record our album Rambler´s Romance in 2014 it was done entirely in six hours of work, seventeen tracks including nine of our originals that we captured in the studio of our personal Sam Phillips, the great Vicente Artal "Soni" of Caraband Productions and the album was a great success and opened lots of doors to us. It sold the first edition of 400 copies in a few months and now we are nearly finishing a second edition of 300 CD´s more.

    But that was the second time around when we got it right. It was a first try in the studio of the groovy people of El Regreso Radio, where Miguel, host and tech of upcoming bands radio show "La Tela de Araña 2.0" (The Spider Web 2.0, hence the title of this EP) offered us his studio to make the recordings. We gathered together the whole band with six ambient dynamic microphones capturing the live session in a room not bigger than a living room. Those tapes remained in oblivion for a while and now, for popular demand we have decided to publish them in an EP, Digital and CD formats available.

ADDED NOTE IN OCTOBER 9th, 2016

We found out today that Miguel "Buka", the man who offered his studio, equipment and time to record two of our albums, "Unplugged at Bop Street" and specially this one. He took care of turning the living room into a full session drums included. He did a lot for the music and the musicians in Valencia, and we will remember you and thank you wherever you are. As per today, this EP is dedicated to MIGUEL "BUKA", gone too soon, and to his family and friends.

Well, if you know us you will know by now that we are not partial about leaving music buried in tapes or hard drives without being heard. We understand the quest for perfection that many musicians seek by recording in the best studios, with the best gear available and looking for a modern and crispy production.

We are just not like that. First of all, we don´t have access to that kind of luxury, but we keep on writing songs and adding new covers to our always growing setlist and we record our music as we can, grabbing the chance as it passes by, on the spot and making the best out of it.

If you own an studio and fancy recording us and publishing us a record, you are most welcome to it, though for sure we´d have a go at the time of mastering the final mixes!

Juan Carlos Mota (Jay Rambler) y Dani Dómino were the rhythm section of The Ramblers for a long time with plenty of great shows at our back in venues like Loco Club, Black Note or 16 Toneladas to mention a few and the band really rocked and rolled, with a tight sound and pulse, but we lacked some more tracks and for life matters we couldn´y put it together. So the session stayed dormant in a hard drive until today that we decided to rescue them.

With a MacBook and Audacity I polished a bit the tracks, applying some EQ to reduce the sound of the cymbals and snare, leveling them and passing them through a compressor and we are releasing now five of the songs of that session. Everything is recorded live and no overdubs have been added.

The sixth song, "Pirate Love" is one of our originals that was recorded at home, using an iPad with GarageBand, a Sony Stereo microphone and an iRig to connect electric guitar and bass to the device.

And we hope that you will enjoy this songs as we enjoyed playing them and recording it, it was a hell of a session and a ball of a good time!

Track Name: Rocket in my Pocket
I got a rocket in my pocket and a roll in my walk
So, baby don't fuss me with that North Forty talk
There ain't nothing you can tell me I don't already know
I got a rocket in my pocket and I'm raring to go
A-Let's go some place so we can rock a bit
I got a rocket in my pocket and the fuse is lit

Well, two-in-one's polish and three-in-one's oil
A lot of lid-flipping makes my bad blood boil
I didn't come here to listen, so cut the scene
I got a rocket in my pocket and a roll in my jeans
Let's go some place so we can rock a bit
I got a rocket in my pocket and the fuse is lit

Well, better tune in and get my signal right
Or there'll be no rocking tomorrow night
Ain't nothing you can tell me I don't already know
I got a rocket in my pocket and I'm raring to go
A-let's go some place so we can rock a bit
I got a rocket in my pocket and the fuse is lit
Track Name: Same Old You
So here you are
In your borrowed car
Kicking rocks around
Looking at your shoes
It's the same old you

Tell me where you been
And where you're going to
Where were you last night
Boy listen up when I'm talking to you
It's the same old you

Another lonely night
With that same old whiskey morning

It's the same old you
When you get to drinking
The same old you
When you're on the town
The same old you
In church on Sunday
Getting high when the sun goes down

Well this time I done some thinking
And I think I'm done with you
Cause until I get to leaving
It's just the same old me too

Well your mama's gonna cry her eyes
There ain't gonna be no wedding day
What's she gonna say?
When I tell her how I had no choice
The same old you couldn't even raise your voice
And ask me to stay
I wouldn't anyway

So you can keep your ring
And I'll keep my daddy's name

It's the same old you
When you get to drinking
The same old you
When you're on the town
The same old you
In church on Sunday
Getting high when the sun goes down

This time I done some thinking
And I think I'm done with you
Cause until I get to leaving
It's just the same old me too

Cause until I get to leaving
It's just the same old me too
Track Name: Losing End
I went into town to see you
yesterday
but you were not home.
So I talked to some old friends
for a while
before I wandered off alone.

It's so hard for me now
But I'll make it somehow,
Though I know I'll never be the same.
Won't you ever change your ways,
It's so hard to make love pay
When you're on the losing end,
And I feel that way again.

Well, I miss you more than ever,
since you've gone
I can hardly maintain.
Things are different round here
every night,
my tears fall down like rain.

It's so hard for me now
But I'll make it somehow,
Though I know I'll never be the same.
Won't you ever change your ways,
It's so hard to make love pay
When you're on the losing end,
And I feel that way again.
Track Name: Hard Headed Woman
Well a hard headed woman,
a soft hearted man
been the cause of trouble
ever since the world began.
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
a hard headed woman been
a thorn in the side of man.

Now Adam told to Eve,
"Listen here to me,
don't you let me catch you
messin' round that apple tree."
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
a hard headed woman been
a thorn in the side of man.

Now Samson told Delilah
loud and clear,
"Keep your cotton pickin' fingers
out my curly hair."
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
a hard headed woman been
a thorn in the side of man.

I heard about a king
who was doin' swell
till he started playing
with that evil Jezebel.
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
a hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man.

I got a woman,
a head like a rock.
If she ever went away
I'd cry around the clock.
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
a hard headed woman been
a thorn in the side of man.
Track Name: Hound Dog
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' 'round the door
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' 'round my door
You can wag your tail
But I ain't gonna feed you no more
You told me you was high class
But I could see through that
Yes, you told me you was high class
But I could see through that
And daddy I know
You ain't no real cool cat
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' 'round the door
You're just an old hound dog
Been snoopin' 'round my door
You can wag your tail
But I ain't gonna feed you no more

You made me feel so blue
You made me weep and moan
You made me feel so blue
Well you made me weep and moan
'Cause I'm looking for a woman
All your lookin' for is a home

You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' 'round the door
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' 'round my door
You can wag your tail
But I ain't gonna feed you no more
