    Picked up the Woodchuck's record today. I've givien it a few listens now, and it kicks ass. Great songwriting, excellent playing, and well mixed. Woodchuck is an amazing bassist. Good stuff. I just got it, so I won't comment on individual tracks yet, but to those who have been thinking about it after hearing just one or two tracks, it's well worth it.
     
  2. and as I remember, he's only been playing for about 6 or 7 years?? Is that right, varmint? :)

    LOL! Yeah. Thanks for the kind review. Now, if about 5 million people.....
     

  4. Hey man, would you rather have 5 million people that have mixed reviews about it, or 50,000 who FREAKIN LOVE IT?!

    Well, that's what I'd choose.

    It's a really good album though, so I bet it deos well.

    I got it today after giving the promo EP in my college radio station (krfh.net) a spin. I like it a lot. Very good stuff there Woodchuck. I'm sure it'll do well. I know I'll be playing it pretty frequently on-air.

    I picked it up 3/1/05 as soon as the record store opened, and this CD hasn't left my stereo system yet.

    Woodchuck simply plays for the song, no tricks or overplaying, just solid azz bass lines.

    Keep up the good work Woodchuck, for u are El Pus.


    O'yea, buy this CD.................May I breath now WC. ;)
     
  9. that "thing thing" song has been drifting into my head occasionally for the past couple days. good sign i guess!

  11. Would you get us backstage passes?



    *bambi eyes* PWWWWWEEEEAAAZZZEEE? I put you in my profile!
     
  12. I can definitely imagine "Suburb Thuggin" receiving some heavy rotation.


    Just don't forget us small guys when you're a rock god. :bassist:
     
  13. Oh ! Come to Mississippi!!!! Yall Rock! Love the Album! :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:

    I was watching the last episode of VH1's "Best Week Ever", and they were playing "Suburb Thugg'n" in the background. :cool:

    I just watched your video, I could get a lot of my friends and peers into this. I've never heard of it before now, which is odd seeing as you are on Virgin Records.

    If you're gonna be in the DC area PM me and I'll put the word out......us cracked head teenagers that think we're black love this type of music.
    :bag:

    anyone else get my joke?
     
  17. Alright. Spinnin' this for the first time. I'm on "Thing Thing" and I'm diggin it, but I just finished listening to Frances the Mute about 5 minutes before this, so talk about culture shock!
     
  18. Hey woody, did you use an octaver on "Salutations"? If you didn't, major props for timing. It sounds DEAD ON.

    I pulled the octave note, i.e. double stops. Thanks.
     

  20. It sounds more like the guitar player playing with an octaver to me.
