Happy to share another artist feature, time is hard to come by lately but I couldn’t resist this one. (Sorry to those who have been writing for placement!)

Fred Jeske, a music man who wears many a hat, I have been fortunate enough to get to know a bit over the past few years. We’ve nerded out over some topics, shared some of our art with each other, etc etc. That is one of the beauties of creating is that you get the chance to meet many people you never normally would. So, with this being said, I promised Fred an artist feature and am happy to oblige. He has a lot going on with music and the label, (Rescord), he has been associated with for over 3 decades has just released a 35th anniversary boxset! How rad is that? (And, thanks Fred for the complimentary box.) Anyways, here is what he had to say in his own colorful way… <Thanks for reading>

“Here goes! An in the moment interpretation of… Oh Man Wow!

Oh Man Wow! was released on Halloween. The power prog alternative release encapsulates 35 years of recording from Rescord; a San Francisco and Chicago based label that introduced their journey on Halloween, 1986 with a live show.

Back then, Joe Maydak, Sam Schauer and Fred Jeske had just released their first cassette under the name of The Fabulous Welts. From that point up to present, Rescord has released many cassettes, CDs and a vinyl release. Including bands – 1000 Weeks, AAA Battery and Conduit of Humanity. Oh Man Wow! brings this diverse and eclectic collection full circle, albeit a departure in theme and approach. Oh Man Wow! is also included in the 6-disc 35th Anniversary box set; both available on Bandcamp – https://ohmanwow.bandcamp.com/releases – Oh Man Wow! Is mixed and produced by Joe Maydak and Blinker the Star’s Jordon Zadorozny! Lyrics contain personal stories from Fred and Joe. Bryan Ray from Wicked Fools provides the high powered vocals throughout plus raw and sonic guitar solos. Fred recorded rhythm guitars along with Sam Schauer, original writer. Joe performs all bass tracks with his brand attack and Jerry Pellizzer, Conduit of Humanity drummer, creates a powerful beat to the onslaught. Guest guitars by David Ziegler, Rich and Joy Randall as Rescord kept with the theme of artist inclusion, reminiscent of their current Conduit project.” – Available on Bandcamp, (CD and digital), Apple Music and Spotify.
