New Double A Side 7" Record Launch - Melbourne

This is it folks......the results of their blood, sweat & tears over the last 9 months. The band have been keeping a relatively low key, simply working on new recordings to release and share with their fans. They formed a great working relationship (and friendship) with David M Turner, Producer & Engineer of Los Bomberos Studio in Northcote, Victoria. With the Dave & Assistant Engineer Kyle Lane and the amazing writing talents of both Felix and Leo, the band have created 10 studio tracks so far (with more in the works) which we have decided to release as a 'collection' of double sided Limited Edition 7 inch Vinyl records. These will be released over the next 12 months, with their intention to release two new tracks at a time every 2 to 3 months.

 

The first two tracks hot off the production line are 'MOCKINGBIRD' and 'SEEING THINGS' which some might be familiar with from some of our recent live shows in the past. Well now you can take them home with you, both on Vinyl format as well as being available in the usual Digital Download option. Remember folks, these Vinyls will be limited to just a run of 200, so get in quick if you want one!

 

The Rechords are putting together a big 'ol bash at one of Melbourne's most unique venues, the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood with it's optional 'opening roof' band room. It's the perfect opportunity and they have invited Special Guests, The Bon Ton Rhythms to help celebrate.

Reservoir Stomping with The Rechords

Reservoir Stomping with The Rechords

Reservoir has never been known for its arts and music scene… or any scene, really. According to most, it’s the creative never-never of Melbourne’s north. An uneventful suburb. A sleepy kind of place. If there’s anything exciting going on, you best believe it’s not going on in Reservoir.

But that’s all about to change. 

On Sunday 30th October the Preston-Reservoir Bowls Club will throw open its doors for the inaugural Reservoir Stomp. It’s an event run by locals for locals…. and anyone else that’s ever been too afraid to venture beyond Bell Street to attend a gig. 

The concept for the Reservoir Stomp came about after proud “Reza” residents Emma Peel (PBS FM) and Danny Walsh (Danny Walsh Banned) kept bumping into fellow performers at the local IGA. Performers who were just as passionate about their home suburb as they were. You see, Reservoir is a great place to live. It’s one of the few remaining suburbs in outer Melbourne where you can still buy a home made cream bun at the cake shop; Where you still get a sense of Australian ‘suburbia’ in all its glory. And for performers, it’s the perfect place to be inspired.

The Reservoir Stomp is a celebration of the suburb’s rich and diverse talent base, spanning dance, comedy and, of course, music. More than 20 of Reservoir’s finest exponents of funk, soul, salsa, garage, rock’n’roll and rockabilly will take to the stage alongside up-and-coming stars of r&b, rap and punk. There’ll be Bollywood and hip hop dancers and authentic 1960’s dance classes, too. There’ll be celebrity MC’s to officiate proceedings. There’ll be local food vendors and barefoot bowls. And to top it off, there’ll be an incredible All Stars Band playing hits from Quentin Tarantino’s iconic Reservoir Dogs soundtrack. 

Yeah, nothing much happens in Reservoir - only the biggest suburban shindig of the year!

 

THE RECHORDS will be included in one of the best local lineups seen this side of the Yarra.  More details to come soon....re: Times.

Preston Records RENT PARTY!
Jul

3:00pm 3:00pm

Preston Records RENT PARTY!

ONE HUGE LINEUP to support a very worthy cause.  It's all about helping out a fellow musician and a Melbourne Recording Studio institute. 

You may or may not have heard of Preston Records, but those who appreciate amazing authentic roots recordings and the warmth of vintage valve sounds will surely know the legendary recording sessions that have come out of this studio since the 80's and the many, many releases on the Preston label.  The studio has seen the 'whos who' of the Melbourne roots, rock'n'roll and rockabilly musos that have twanged and bellowed various tunes and laid them down on reel to reel tape.  Not even local but it has played host to many an interstate and overseas act within those studio walls.  The man behind it all is Graeme Thomas, Bassist, Guitarist, Engineer and Producer who has lived, breathed and ran the studio for many a year and like many of us at times, has had his ups and downs through life.  Well now is one of those times when it's down, so the potential to see an Melbourne institution like Preston Records be lost is very, very real.  Through the efforts of Rick Dempster and others, this won't be a lost cause.  This is a benefit show to raise the much needed funds to help Graeme keep the dream alive and give others the continued opportunity to record the way it should be.

The Rechords have a strong connection with Graeme, for if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have met Leo Francis.  So get on board with this one folks, if the lineup isn't enough I don't know what is........... check this out:-

STRAIGHT 8's / CONTINENTAL ROBERT / DANCEHALL RACKETEERS / CHRIS WILSON / LISA MILLER / THE STARLINERS / PAUL MADIGAN / EZRA LEE / KERRI SIMPSON / THE STRINGBUSTERS / TIJUANA SURF.

Tickets available direct through The Thornbury Theatre.

Sounds of Americana in Newcastle, NSW
Jun
24
to Jun 25

Sounds of Americana in Newcastle, NSW

  • Hamilton Station Hotel (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Sounds of Americana’ is what you will hear at The Hamo on this night. Two bands, one from south of the border down Melbourne way (THE RECHORDS) and the other from the local state hailing from Sydney (CRUISIN' DEUCES) joining forces for one hell of a roots explosion. Both acts may have the feel and perhaps the look of that cross between Western Swing, Hillbilly and Rockin’ acts of the 40’s / 50’s but don’t let looks fool you, you’ll hear more than just 12 bar twang all night.

Never judge a band by it’s name, cause the Cruisin’ Deuces will be packing an almighty punch from a stripped back version of their normal lineup. This night will see trio versus trio, the Deuces will be in the form of Guitar, Double Bass and Pedal Steel kickin’ off the Americana vibe earlier on and continuing to enthral theaudience as they have been doing consistently since forming in Sydney’s inner west.

There will be ‘No Drums Required’ on this night……but rest assured there will be plenty of rhythm without a doubt.

Doors open from 9pm, just $10 at the door.

GEM'S 10th BIRTHDAY BASH

7:30pm 7:30pm

GEM'S 10th BIRTHDAY BASH

Well whadya know...... it's been 10 long years since the current owner Tonino has had the old Gem Bar up and running.  It's definitely been built up to be one of Melbourne finest pubs bringing together some damn fine grub eventually specialising in the good old Creole and Texas-style BBQ and giving a home to some of Melbourne's best roots acts around (among other genres).

Just so happens to, that The Gem & The Rechords have built a special relationship together over the years going way back to 2010 when we began a Sunday residency that spanned almost 2 years.  Our 'Saddle Up Sundays' became kind of infamous, gathered momentum and help build us quite a local following that we hold very special.  Our 'Gem Family' as they became, were and still are an important part of our journey and we can't thank everyone of them enough who came week after week to enjoy our music and support the band.  We continued performing many random shows there and Tonino the publican became a good friend of the band, so what better way to help him & the Gem celebrate a milestone, then to come back and perform on the birthday weekend for the Sunday session.

So get ya glad rags on, book a table early for a feed and come on down to enjoy one hot & sweaty night of Rechords tunes......and it'll be our 95th show there (roughly).

7:30pm till 9:30pm.

Gem of a Gig

That's right....... you are not 'Seeing Things' ( pardon the pun...one of our new songs ;D ) but yes, the lads are back to The Gem for a One-Off show but this time we are doing a Friday Night.  
Come out and re-live the excitement of a match that was made in heaven, The Rechords + The Gem. It worked magically for around a year of an almost non-stop residency that happened every Sunday evening (SADDLE UP SUNDAYS) back in 2010-2011 and then a bunch of short residencies for the following years in 2012, 2013 & 2014. It's been a long partnership with ourselves and Tonino the publican and helped build a local and loyal fan base over the years and thanks to those who came to see us week after week. It mean't alot to us and helped towards making the band we are today.

We'll see you down there.......it's going to be a great way to end the working week!!!!!

Rechords + Rum = Cup Eve

If you're in Melbourne then you'll know about 'The Cup'.....the biggest horse race in the Southern Hemisphere that captures all of Australia on the one day in November.  

Yep.....who cares!!!!   We don't ;)  ....that's why we're doing a gig that has nothing to do with Horses or Horse Racing. Cup Eve is usually a huge one on the Melbourne Music scene diary so the good folks at Sailor Jerry Rum have decided to organise an intimate little show with yours truly at one of Fitzroy's new-ish little gems, The Rum Diary Bar on Brunswick Street.

We'll be kicking off your Public Holiday (if you're in Victoria that is....hehehe) festivities down there at 9pm for two sets.  It's free to get in and they have some top notch beverages for you to sample, so come on down.....may need to get there early to grab your spot, it's tight and not really a place for dancing but we won't stop you from boogying on the inside and clapping along. Or perhaps you're more of a 'Finger Snapper' or even a 'Head Bopper', whatever you do you can do it on Mon 2nd Nov.

And so it's appropriate our show kicks off late from 11pm down in the 'speak-easy' style venue known as the BROOKLYN STANDARD, one of Brisbane's newest and quirkiest music venues which is located off Eagle Lane in the CBD.  The owners were buzzed when we contacted them to choose their venue to launch our latest album we released this year titled a 'LIVE RECHORDING'.

So after our daytime appearance at the Decades Festival, we'll be loading up the van and heading down into Brisbane for one HUGE (3) SET show in the intimate setting of this underground venue.  It'll be more Rechords than you've ever seen, a chance for us to not only showcase our brand new tunes as well as belting out some Rechords classics you've come to know but a chance for us to revisit some of our favourite covers we've performed throughout our 6 year history.

Look forward to seeing some familiar faces and some new ones.
