Excerpt written by Mark Keresman, Chicago based Freelance writer, taken from a Scene magazine Article:
“H.J. DeBoe loves rock & roll. But he’s no collector nerd, rock star wannabe, or big fish in a little pond harboring delusions of grandeur; he’s a thoroughly devoted fan and musician. Talk with him for a few minutes, and the very cadence of his speech betrays a lifetime of rock immersion: simultaneously intelligent, blunt, opinionated, enthusiastic, and slightly adolescent – yet, realistic. More important, the guitarist, singer, songwriter has absorbed the fundamentals that made the music great in the first place: Riffs and melodies that crawl underneath your skin, emotional immediacy, heartfelt singing, thoughtful inspiration, wit and economy sans retro affection.
His band is The Stereo Workers Union...”
The Stereo Workers Union realizes it’s vision on their new record “Get Down with the Way Down.” Recorded primarily at the headquarters for The Committee to Keep Music Evil (Home base for The Brian Jonestown Massacre) in Lake Hollywood, CA. the album was finished and mixed by Tim Long at Studio C in "Hingetown" Ohio City, Cleveland, Ohio.
Having played shows with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, Spindrift and The High Dials (to name a few). The Stereo Workers Union is looking forward to extensive touring in 2014 to support the release of “Get Down with the Way Down”. They are also halfway through the production of what will be their follow-up record “Creek Prowess”.
So let’s rest when we’re dead… and in the meantime may we find solace in the union.
