ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eight years after his previous band, The Central Standards, played their final show in Memphis, co-singer, songwriter, and guitarist Ted Horrell has released a new album of original music, Sputnik, with three of his former music collaborators playing under the name The Monday Night Card. Like the album’s namesake; Memphis wrasslin’ legend Sputnik Monroe; the record challenges and celebrates, belies expectations, and generally carries on with an energy and attitude that can only come from Memphis.

After a seven-year run with The Central Standards which produced three studio albums (2003’s Refrain, 2005’s Can’t Remember the Last Time, and 2007’s The Central Standards’ Folly); an opening spot at the 2006 Memphis in May Beale Street Music Fest; positive reviews from The Memphis Flyer and The Commercial Appeal, and regular airplay on WEVL and Rock 103; founding singer-songwriters Horrell and Jeffrey C. Capps parted ways in 2008 when Capps relocated to Iowa City. Back in Memphis, Horrell settled in to seven years of focus on his career in public education and attention to his young family.

But Horrell’s desire to write and make music never abated. Rehearsals with The Central Standards rhythm section, Casey Smith (bass) and Marty Christopher (drums) led to shows at Memphis Rock-N-Romp and the Germantown Festival as well as Neil’s Music Room in East Memphis in 2013. Those shows stoked a desire to record Horrell’s new songs that the band had worked up. A tip from a friend led the band to Bryan Hayes’ Farmhouse Studio in Moscow, TN where the now-foursome (augmented by former Resident Clark keyboardist Joel McGinness) spent three days and two nights recording the eleven tracks that make up the new album.

The resulting music is a sound firmly rooted in classic rock and roll with hints of Stax-era soul and new wave thrown in for good measure. The band’s tight, punchy sound and Horrell’s compelling and memorable songwriting make for a strong collection of songs. The album captures Horrell's continuing maturity as a songwriter as more musically simple arrangements merge with more complex lyrical themes. Less folksy than his previous recordings, the album blends accessibility and emotional depth.
