BIGGY STARDUST AND HIS WRETCHED HIVE
Biggy Stardust and His Wretched Hive is a 4 piece punk outfit hailing from charlotte, NC. After playing numerous shows in and around Charlotte and recording an album, our drummer and bass player decided to pursue other projects. 8 months later we finally found a suitable replacement in Chris Engler and Johnny D. Chris is a solid drummer who is serious about the band and his drumming. Johnny D. has bad ass bass lines and a rock n roll attitude. Both new members have played in other bands around Charlotte and they are a great addition to the Wretched Hive.
We have played many shows with local acts but have also been booked to open for many national and regional acts as well. Some of these include The Misfits, Antiseen, Agent Orange, The Mentors, Joe Buck Yourself, The Have Nots, The Sex Slaves, Scott H. Biram, and Thunderlip. We also played The Heavy Rebel Weekender in 2009.
The songs you are hearing are true DIY. There was no studio, no producer, engineer, pedal boards etc.. This recording was done in a warehouse for the music tracks and the vocals were done in our drummer's apartment. We used 8 mics and a laptop with adobe audition. All music was recorded live in 1 to 3 takes with leads overdubbed to create a full sound. The guitars are simple, a cable into the guitar and then into the amp. No pedals, special effects or post production effects were used so what you are hearing is what you will here live. Thanks to John for his kick ass bass lines, expert recording knowledge, and to Kevin for his kick ass drumming. We wish you well in your other projects.
