Hey there fellow rockers.
Thanks for stopping by our Bandcamp page, hope you're digging the tunes.
You are currently listening to our debut independently produced album, THIS IS ROCK N ROLL, our ode to our first love, ROCK'N'ROLL!
Since we were kids, all of us in The Mere Humans have been rabid fans of all things rock n roll. We grew up on Rock N Roll radio! We listened (and still do) to it all, from Eddie Cochrane and The Surfaris to Motorhead and The Stooges......to us it all rocks, so why not celebrate it?
This thought was fore-front in our minds when we stumbled bleary eyed into Little Bullhorn Studios on a warm fall morning in October, 2015. We wanted to make a record that would make that fifteen year old kid in us wanna loose their shit......we wanted to make a record like the ones we all LOVED growing up. We wanted to make a record that OTHER rock n roll freaks would want to listen to as well!
The goal was to make a REAL rock n roll record the old school way. THIS IS ROCK N ROLL was recorded onto two inch tape and the mixes for vinyl version of the album was mixed onto 1/4 tape. The only digital processing we used for this recording was the software used to create the digital versions you are listening to right now.
The 10 all original songs on THIS IS ROCK N ROLL are inspired by this love and they explore a wide range of rock n roll styles. There's the raunchy and driving aggressive blues of BIG DOG, the jangly pop psych of AIN'T ALL GONE and TEMPLE, the swampy boogie rock n roll of DELTA FOXX and THIS IS ROCK N ROLL, straight up hard rock intensity with MIND THE NOZZLE and MADE MEN and a touch of 60's Brit Invasion with MUST CONFESS. What ever your rock n roll needs, we got ya covered. This is an explosive album and if you love real rock n roll then you're most likely gonna want to grab yerself a copy.
Thanks for checking out our site. We really hope you are enjoying it.
