Album Notes
Layin' It Down Eight Days A Week - A dynamic new soul experience from self-made Seattle funk band, Shiftless Layabout. On this release, the band deftly combines elements of vintage 1970's funk (brassy, close miked horns and driving rhythms) with the crunch and swagger of southern rock and the lo-fi grit of an old-school Hong Kong action film soundtrack.

The self-produced album was recorded over a few weekends in a junior high band room just outside of Seattle. It was mixed by lead singer, TK (and his four year-old son), over the course of almost two years. The album was mastered by the uber-awesome Barry Corliss at Masterworks, Seattle (Modest Mouse, Carrie Akre, Blue Scholars, Common Market).

Shiftless Layabout was founded in Seattle in the summer of 2002. It began with TK (Revolutionary Hydra) writing songs with his buddy Mike in a one-room University District apartment under the working title of SOULIO. The band soon grew to include The New England Rhythm of Matty Good-Times super-tight bass (The Red Note, RB Reed) and Tommy Two-tone's blues-soaked guitar (BlacVelvett). Further fueling the fire is the 'lunchbox' flavor - brassy saxophone and angelic back-up vocals - and the phat trombone sounds of Heidi 'chico' Wischler (Jonny Sonic, Red Note). After making their way through numerous drummers the band finally came back to the only guy who could handle their super-hot grooves, Master Of The Percussive Arts, Christian 'the squid' Krehbiel. The band is funk and rock, grit and polish... brass dynamite and bass thunder!
