Personnel: Dave Martone, Greg Howe, Jennifer Batten, Joe Satriani (guitar); David Spidel, Billy Sheehan, Ric Fierabracci (bass instrument); Daniel Adair (drums)
If you thought that Canadian rock started and ended with Rush, Saga or Triumph, think again. Canadian guitar virtuoso, Dave Martone is a force to be reckoned with.
“I wanted the album to be playable by a 3 piece band, while not relying heavily on studio production techniques. I wanted more of a 4 on the floor vibe, with very strong melodies, and a more organic texture of sounds.”
All songs have Daniel Adair of Nickelback laying down the drum duties. "Nail Grinder" features a blistering solo from none other than Joe Satriani. "Hard Wired" features an amazing solo from Greg Howe. For "Dinky Pinky", Martone wanted a bass player that would kick hard. Billy Sheehan was, of course, the logical choice and he lays down an incredible performance. "Moron Face" i s a heavy riff tune with Jennifer Batten guest soloing.
