Details:
Hoodoo is a word with multiple meanings, like a darker version of "aloha". It's a noun, a verb, and an adjective, depending on how it's used, but in meaning it always suggests some trickery, magic, or mysterious change. The songs on this EP have all undergone some sort of hoodoo transformation, lending an insight into Chainsaw Dupont's approach to music. The rap-influenced political screed "Hoodoo Ya" was originally slated for release on Chainsaw's debut, "Lake St. Lullaby" CD, but missed the release deadline. Originally, it was more of a Mississippi Delta blues, with a bassline like "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", but morphed over time into something akin to old-school Gil Scot-Heron rap. Similarly, "99mph (backroads version)" was an alternate, traditional blues arrangement of the funky lead track on the debut. "Shotgun House", was the first "Lake St." track completed, but due to some ghost (or hoodoo?) in the machine, we lost most of the tracks for it later and had to almost completely re-record it. We found this backup of the original mix on CD, and after some studio wizardry by Arlo Alexis, managed to release it here. The PEPS remix of 99mph is Arlo's danceable vision of the song, tying modern hip-hop elements to their roots in the blues. The other 3 tracks are live solo acoustic reworkings of 3 tracks from "Lake St." recorded live at Bill's Blues this past June, they're spare arrangements of the songs that Chainsaw worked out on acoustic 12-string guitar, which Arlo took from digital video soundtracks and remixed for the EP (there's also bonus content on this CD, with video footage which can be viewed on a computer). We hope you will enjoy this special limited release as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
