Album Notes
"Trip the Fuse" is a NY based trio with Doc Callahan on guitar, keyboards and vocals, John Earle on drums and vocals, and Chuck Callahan on guitar, bass and vocals. Combined they have decades of experience playing live and in recording studios. With musical tastes that range from indie to hip hop to classic hard rock to country ballads, it is difficult to pigeonhole the band into one genre.

The four-track release "Now We're Getting Somewhere" is the trio's first album of original material, but represents only a fraction of their combined creative library. This EP is a driving quartet of up-tempo, intellectual (and often sarcastic) tales of love, loss and happiness, drawing on personal experiences and expanding them into deep, rich modern tales with the occasional moral. The band warns us: "Don't fall in love with actresses or models, the artifice will only bring you trouble." Elements of the indie, punk, classic rock and grunge that have influenced the members are obvious in this sonically and emotionally consistent short form album. The band is planning more releases of this type in the future, but they will also release albums with a broader scope, branching out into pop, country and hip hop.

The four tracks were recorded and overdubbed entirely in their own studios on their equipment: the band did all the engineering and preliminary mixes, in addition to playing all of the instruments and singing all the vocals. The tracks were massaged and mixed by Ric Schnupp, and mastered by Mike Fossenkemper at Turtle Tone Studios.

Now let's hear something about the trio themselves.

Chuck has been singing and playing guitar, bass and keyboards in bands and solo gigs for over twenty years. From open mic nights to headlining gigs in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Ohio and New York, he has enjoyed taking chances and playing the unexpected tune, creating arrangements of songs that fit the abilities and interests of the musicians and the tastes of the audience. Past performances included an arrangement of Massive Attack’s “Protection” for a duet (Chuck on keys) and a rousing solo acoustic version of Guided By Voices “Storm Vibrations”. Always interested in original composition, Chuck found his creative voice and started to write heavily fifteen years ago. Starting with a blue and white Mac, Digital Performer, and a MOTU 896 interface, he has been acquiring more sophisticated gear and filling up hard drives with music ever since. Chuck uses these many tools to create innumerable fragments, riffs, hooks, passages, and sound concepts. He spend his time nurturing the occasional promising seed into a sprout, and the exceptional sprout into a sapling.

Doc literally cut teeth on music (an old wood ukelele). He spent the early years singing and playing Everly Brothers songs with cousin, mastering harmony, song structure, and arranging along the way. Doc bought a new Gretch Anniversary Model guitar & amp ($169) at the start of high school and promptly started a rock band. By 16 years of age, he was playing in popular NYC rock and jazz venues and doing studio work (ghosting guitar and vocal parts, demos, sideman work). Doc fronted a rock band at NYC World’s Fair (’64-’65) in the Bourbon Street (Louisiana) Pavilion opposite most of the great names in jazz and big band. He turned down recording contract offers to pursue a Doctorate and professional career in Psychology (college professor and psychologist in private practice), but never stopped the music. He continued to play, compose, arrange, record, mix, and produce music over the ensuing years. His career in music spans a period that began with monaural tape recording, on through multi-track and into the high-end digital domain.

John’s story has taken many different paths, but all have shared the common theme that great art has no set road. A self-taught musician and DJ, John has played drums, guitar, harmonica, and keys for over 15 years to create unique textures in various styles and multiple genres. He has brought his talent and skill to the masses as the rhythmic backbone of Bayside's most (in)famous cover band. For the past 10 years, John has also been working on the other side of the desk as a producer and promoter with various bands throughout the metro NY area, working with them to perfect their sound and turn new corners. A man of many tastes and interests, John has worked with a variety of hip-hop emcee’s producing tracks for mix tapes and studio albums. Ever since his early days with the Akai MPC 2000xL, John has been crafting some of the most unique beats on the scene. No samples, all original content. From Three Chord Rock to Underground Hip Hop and whatever may be hiding in the dark corners in between, John is never done looking for new paths to travel in search of what moves him next.

We hope you take the time to listen and enjoy the music.
