Gem of a Gig - April Residency

The Gem Bar has played a huge part in the history of The Rechords and became our 'home away from home' predominently through 2010 till 2012 every Sunday for our infamous "Saddle Up Sundays". Ever since then our regular fans, many who became friends of the band, have attended each and every show almost and supported us throughout our career since 2009. We've been back and forth for a couple of short monthly residencies and a few special one-off shows over the last 5 years but it's been a long time between drinks (as they say).
So we'll be returning to our favourite bar in Melbourne for another special series of shows every Sunday through April, a chance to relive the atmosphere that only the Gem Bar provides, kick up ya heels on the hardwood floor, grab a beer, chow down on some of the best pub grub in town and catch up with friends all whilst bopping away to some of your fav Rechords tunes and be privy to hearing some fresh new tracks.

It all starts EASTER SUNDAY 1st April, this will be a HUGE show to kick off the Sunday residency for those who have the Monday Public Holiday off!!

New Double Side 7" Vinyl No.2 Launch @ Heartaches & Hangovers

New Double Side 7" Vinyl No.2 Launch @ Heartaches & Hangovers

The second 7inch Vinyl release from The Rechords will be happening inconjunction with the new annual 'Heartaches & Hangovers' event at the Thornbury Theatre in you guessed it..... Thornbury (Vic).

TICKETS AVAILABLE VIA THIS LINK

Heartaches & Hangovers is a new regular honky tonk night in the Thornbury Theatre’s Velvet Room on the second Saturday of every month. Unique to this night is the supreme pairing of community radio legends Denise Hylands (Twang -Triple R FM, Saturdays 2pm -4pm) with Dave Heard (Acid Country- PBS FM, Thursdays 3pm - 5pm) as resident DJs going back to back playing your favourite country tunes including a few by the night’s namesake George Jones that will be sure to get feet two stepping on the dance floor.

'LYING LIPS + HAVE YOU SEEN MY BABY TONIGHT' is the next Double A Sided 7" in a series that are being released over the next 12 months from the trio and they are honoured to launch it at this incredible night at one of Thornbury's most iconic venues and some of Melbourne's legendary community radio personalities / announcers from PBS & RRR fm.  This will be a great night folks so get on down to support your local music community and grab your limited edition vinyl on the night.

The new single releases continue for Melbourne trio The Rechords from the collaboration with producer/engineer, David M Turner Esq. The second of many releases to come from these sessions is the Double A side 7" record “Lying Lips/Have You Seen My Baby Tonight” .
The Rechords draw on many influences from the Americana genre with particular roots in the golden tones of the 1940’s, 50’s & 60’s. A stripped back line-up of acoustic and electric guitars with an upright bass allows their rich three-part harmonies to shine through while ensuring the rhythm is still upfront and strong.
“Lying Lips” sees the Rechords tap back into their vintage country roots to lament the dangerous temptation of alluring beauty everywhere.
'Those lips are only lying to you...' the high harmonies cry '...they won't only break your heart, they'll ruin your mind'!
“Have You Seen My Baby Tonight” is a teen-rebel anthem of being restless and pining for that special someone. Lush 3 part harmonies paired with a desperate rock'n'roll tone accompany
dramatic lead vocals from both Leo & Felix.
These are songs written and delivered with authenticity from a group taking their music in an exciting new direction.

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.

 

TICKETS ONLINE - Available via Link Below (Source) $10+bf or $12 on the door.

Rechords return to Suttons...back to the Rat!

Rechords return to Suttons House of Music once again for another HUGE night of sweet Americana flavoured tunes that only these guys can do.   Dani and the team have invited us back for two sets of our favourite songs and we're buzzed to be able to get back to Ballarat and in particular Sutton's which has to be the best venue in town I reckon.  These guys have some great food as well so why not get there earlier for a feed and then hang around for the fun to begin around 9pm.  We may even have a very special guest jumping up for a tune or two, who came all the way from the U.K.  ;)

Just so happens our show coincides with the local Ballarat Beat Festival so if your in town for that why not drop on in for even just a set then you can catch some of the other bands performing at the weekender.   But hey, if ya diggin' our show stay for the whole shebang!!!

See ya there folks.  This is only one of a few shows we'll be doing for awhile during our time dedicated to rehearsing and recording back in the studio.
