This disc stayed in my cd player for quite a while. It's great 60's inspires pop. After you hear this I know you will want to go to their myspace and buy it from them. The link is at the bottom of the page . The Red Button is made up of Los Angeles-based singer-songwriters Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg. Seth has written hit songs for dozens of artists over the years ranging from Rufus Wainwright ("Instant Pleasure") to Al Green (“Love Is A Beautiful Thing”), Jane Weidlin (of The Go-Gos), Tina Turner, Taylor Dayne ("Tell it to My Heart") and many others. His solo album, Instant Pleasure, was named Best Pop Album at the 2005 L.A. Music Awards. He's also created three popular books consisting of handwritten letters from baseball players. Mike was the writer and singer for the Minneapolis-based pop-rockers Rex Daisy, who recorded a much-admired CD for Geffen Records with producer Paul Fox (XTC). A highly, sought-after L.A. session singer and musician, Mike also wrote the soundtrack to the Indie cult film Dummy (starring Adrien Brody) which plays on cable TV frequently. When they met in 2005, Seth and Mike discovered a shared love of melodic pop songs. So, they started writing together and 11 songs later, She’s About To Cross My Mind, was born. Almost immediately praise from the pop critics poured in. David Bash, founder of the International Pop Overthrow Music Festival said that Seth and Mike “can now wear their rightful crown as the (Peter) Holsapple and (Chris) Stamey of the new millennium”, while Goldmine Magazine’s John Borack called their songs “pop music the way God and Paul McCartney must have intended.”
Welcome to Shotgun Solution.
I use this Blog to share my passion for records, and underground music. If your not into having your record featured here, or if you just want to contact me, you can do so here.
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records link to see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days..
