Mason of Rickett Pass and Buck Thrailkill Jam On Nechville Banjos

Mason of Rickett Pass and Buck Thrailkill Jam On Nechville Banjos

Words below, From Mason Tinsley of Rickett Pass regarding a special gift to him from a friend and the folks at Nechville Banjos

Dig into Nechville Banjos


"Last spring at the Muddy Roots Spring Weekender I met Buck Thrailkill and instantly hit it off. Talking trash about banjo picking and taking cracks at how old he is. ( He is pretty old ) I knew he worked with Rusty Knuckles, but really knew him as a banjo master even though he will deny it. He introduced me to his good friend Steve Longan. Talk about a clown and talk about an instant friendship. All three of us had very similar jobs In the Army which is a bond only few can understand.

How Many Streams Equal The Sale Of One Album? Who The Hell Cares, Write Music That Everyone Wants To Hear, But They Don't Know It Yet

How Many Streams Equal The Sale Of One Album?
Music is everywhere around us. Whether it be the rhythm of bull frogs chirping in unison on a warm summer night or a perfectly balanced and tuned engine, a syncopated noise is happening everywhere we go. What was once considered a high art form, has now just become a commodity as cheap as a bowl of Ramen noodles. 

This is not a sad state of affairs, but a natural evolution that creates a leveling of the playing field and one ripe for opportunity. Bands can now afford to record on their own and do it for a minimal budget. Be thankful for the opportunity as now you have the potential to create your own future and do it on your own terms. Where as only a few decades back, the struggle was to be heard on a national level and to be signed to a huge recording act. Now in a matter of hours a song could be crafted and uploaded to the masses.

Motobunny Feature Review On Yab Yum Music & Arts

Motobunny Feature Review On Yab Yum Music & Arts

Get your copy of the new album now

"I have always wanted to sit down at a cafĂ© table with Tom Waits and Iggy Pop along with Pia Zadora…. I have now just added Motobunny to this epitome of rock and pop culture imagery. Motobunny’s music is a thematic twist of, “C’mon and get it boys ‘cuz we are bad aces!”

I now need to adjust my leather skirt, straighten my fish nets, and apply my wicked luscious shade of femme fatale.

Motobunny Appearing Live On The Roland Sessions Stage

Motobunny Appearing Live On The Roland Sessions Stage
Roland Sessions is a live music performance series. This episode features the band Motobunny. They are performing their song “Thinkin’ About Me.”

Motobunny formed after members of two acclaimed rock bands, The Love Me Nots and The Woolly Bandits got on stage together in 2013. After years of sharing green rooms, tour vans, and seedy motel rooms, it was the first time they had performed as one band and the electricity was undeniable. Together they dashed off songs for a dual-frontwomen rock collaboration, enlisted the help of Love Me Nots drummer Jay Lien, and headed to Detroit to record a full-length album with Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Electric Six, Dirtbombs). Mixed by Bob Hoag (The Format, Dear and The Headlights, Ataris), and mastered by Jason Livermore (Rise Against), the result is 12 tracks of tough rock n’ roll topped off with a girls-just-wanna-have-fun attitude.

Motobunny Feature Review In The Lincoln Star Journal

Motobunny Feature Review In The Lincoln Star Journal

"From the first note of “The Other Side” on its self-titled debut, Motobunny comes on with hooky rock ‘n’ roll and keeps its garagey, glam-tinged sound going through the final ring out of “I Warned You."

Motobunny’s the result of a post-Iggy Pop concert union of Christa Collins, who’s played and recorded with, among others, Michael Jackson, Little Richard and Sky Saxon of the Seeds fame, and who fronts the Woolly Bandits, and Nicole Laurenne, a child classical pianist and lead singer of the Love Me Nots.
