The Deadly Hearts

STEP 1: Get members

Enter Jake, bartender at Gus' Pub - local watering hole - who pours the two baby drafts. Upon discovery that Jake is playing Hasil Adkins on the jukebox, the two inform him that he is to play guitar for their new band. Later that night, the trio are lead to Bearly's house of blues & ribs by the sound of a Banshee. After stepping through the door they find that the voice belongs to Ben, karaoke star and punk rock bass player. The line-up is complete.

STEP 2: Get sound

Band has a great chemistry, shaky practices ensue. Jake describes experience as "almost homoerotic." Band spends the next few weeks learning a set of covers from their rock 'n' roll libraries as well as writing a few originals. Multiple name changes take place. Finally settle on the Deadly Hearts. Band plays a handful of shows around town and wins over the hearts of adoring drunkards.

STEP 3: Get album

In old Mullet space up at the Khyber, band sets up and self records their debut E.P. between smoke breaks. The result: a record that embodies everything that's good about rock 'n' roll.
