Product Notes

ROCK'N'ROLL URANUS (recorded in 2003)is disc #2 in the 4 CD box set/series 'JOHNNY RIOS SONIC RANCHO SESSIONS BOX SET'. features VINZ from HOLY CURSE, BERNWARD from MOTTEK and of course JOHNNY RIO on solos!! The 4 discs in the box set were recorded over 8 years at Johnny Rio's studios but never released. This limited edition set (ONLY 300 numbered copies brings them all together with a plush box case with new updated artwork and mastering. Buy disc by disc as they are released or subscribe to the series. BY 2003 SIMON WAS SPENDING MORE & MORE TIME IN BRAZIL. HE HAD RELEASED BASTA, FORMED HIS OWN BAND S.C.H.K. (Simon Chainsaw & THE HIPPY KILLERS) AND STARTED TOURING AROUND BRAZIL. S.C.H.K. HAD RECORDED THE "TOLD ME A LIE" DISC AND SIMON WAS BACK IN KREUZBURG, IN JOHNNY RIO'S STUDIO TO MIX IT. AGAIN, STEPHAN GRUJIC WAS BEHIND THE CONTROLS (HE ALSO MIXED THE BASTA DISC). WITH THE MIXING WELL UNDERWAY THE GUYS DECIDED TO TAKE A FEW DAYS BREAK. JOHNNY, WELL IMPRESSED WITH THE SOUND OF THE DISC, ENCOURAGED SIMON TO JAM & WRITE WITH STEPHAN. I'D PLAYED DRUMS WITH STEPHAN IN MOTTEK SO THEY CALLED ME IN. I WAS THRILLED!! I'D ALWAYS LIKED SIMON'S SOUND AND I'D PLAYED ON A COUPLE OF TRACKS ON FIRE DOWN BELOW, BUT THE CHANCE TO JAM, WRITE AND MAKE A COMPLETE DISC WITH HIM WAS FANTASTIC. JOHNNY HAD A BASEMENT WHICH WAS THE REHEARSAL ROOM AND IT WAS MID WINTER BY NOW SO THAT ROOM WAS LIKE AN ICE BOX. SO WE'D START JAMMING WITH COATS AND BEANIES ON, BUT BEFORE LONG THE SWEAT WOULD BE DRIPPING DOWN THE WALLS AND WE'D ALL BE STRIPPED DOWN TO NOTHING. NIGHT AFTER NIGHT WE'D GO 3 FLOORS UNDERGROUND INTO THE ICE BOX AND WALK OUT OF AN OVEN! JOHNNYS ENDLESS SUPPLY OF GLUWINE HELPED KEEP OUR TEMPERATURE & SPIRITS HIGH, AND OUR EMOTIONS RISING. WE WROTE 16 SONGS IN THE SPACE OF A FEW WEEKS. STEPHAN FINISHED MIXING "TOLD ME A LIE" AND WE STARTED RECORDING OUR NEW SONGS. BY THEN WE WERE SO IN TUNE WITH THE GROOVE SOMETIMES WE'D GET IT ON THE FIRST TAKE. WE'D DO THE BEDS AT NIGHT AND SIMON WOULD DO HIS GUITARS AND VOICE IN THE DAY. I DON'T KNOW HOW HE AND STEPHAN DID IT BUT THEY USED UP EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY. WE CALLED IN VINZ FROM FRENCHIES "HOLY CURSE" TO DO THE BASS TRACKS. VINZ HAS A GREAT FAT DISTORTED SOUND AND PLAYS THE BASS UPSIDE DOWN SO HE'S ABLE TO DO SOME INTERESTING DIFFERENT STUFF. THEN JOHNNY RIO CAME IN TWIDDLED A FEW KNOBS AND LAYED DOWN HIS MAGIC. PEELING OFF HIS SOLOS AND ADDING EXTRA LICKS, RHYTHMS AND SPICE TO THE SOUND. WITH THE RECORDINGS COMPLETE, SIMON HOPPED ON A PLANE OUTTA HERE WITH SOME ROUGH MIXES LEAVING STEPHAN TO FINISH THE MIXES. BUT OTHER PROJECTS CAME UP, STEPHAN WENT ON TOURS, JOHNNY HAD TO BRING IN THE BUCKS... AND THE CHANCE OF RELEASING THE DISC SLIPPED BY. THE DISC SAT AT THE BOTTOM OF A PILE OF DEMOS, ROUGH MIXES AND OTHER PROJECTS FOR LIKE FOREVER! I'D GET IT OUT AND LISTEN IT FROM TIME TO TIME AND THINK WHAT A SHAME IT NEVER GOT TO THE FANS EARS. SO NOW IT'S GREAT TO SEE IT'S FINALLY ON WAX AS A PART OF THIS RETROSPECTIVE JOHNNY RIO SONIC RANCHO SESSIONS SERIES!! BERNWARD KLIMIK, BERLIN, 2009.
