Radio Altringen: Day Transmission

by Mike Altrin

The first volume of Radio Altringen, recorded in a tiny village in Western Romania, is rock and roll at its best and powerful poetry. Enlivening a crew of rattling musicians, Mike fires up his guitar through a wall of old tube radios, rocks with transcendence and delivers with real integrity and soul.

Album Notes
"One day I got the idea of using an old radio as guitar amplifier, as some folks used to do in the good old days. So I got in the car and drove out of town, in the small villages surrounding my town, asking people if they still keep old tube radios in their barns, attics or cellars. This was the beginning of a long ride that took me on the road for hundreds of miles, gathering old radio receptors, meeting antique-radio freaks, radio lovers, tube-radio repairers, collectors and fanatics. In a short time, I managed to build a wall of radios, all spitting out the sound of one guitar. These old wooden radios howling in the same time filled my heart with joy. What happened next? Having some previous song ideas and writing some new ones, I decided it's time to make a rock album. Question was, with whom? Luckily, not long before, I've seen a few young musicians's gig in a local rock joint and thought these guys can really kick asses. I called them up, asked them if they’d be interested in recording an album together. Luckily, they said yes. Soon after, we organized a recording session in Altringen, a small village to which I am secretly bound. The team was complete: Andrei on bass, Hera on drums, and Brenn to help me with the guitars. Truth is, I expected them to be good, but they exceeded my expectations in a powerful way. Along with Andrei K, helping with the logistics and bass, and Atti, my long-term collaborator and skilful sound engineer, we recorded the album in two weeks. Its bare bones- that is, as a lot of work was left for the studio. It is there that most of Vlad’s contribution and other sudden tracks were added to the project. I called it Radio Altringen. I’m happy to share it with you." (www.mikealtrin.com)
