The Neptunes Davy Jones' House Band
Released: November 2008
How would you describe Neptunes sound? The Neptunes are considered a surf band by many, but it's a surf band that's light on the reverb, and delivers a meaner more revved sound that's closer good ol' instrumental rock and roll.
Over the years the Neptunes made a name for themselves by playing double necked guitars, evenGuitar Player Magazine and Fretboard Journal devoted a little ink to the bands double-double set-up. As of recently a second guitar, a saxophone and a full-time bassist have been enlisted, and a new version of the band has taken form. While the Neptunes don't rule out double-necks in the near future, for now they will only use one set of hands at a time.
This album represents a nine year stretch between disks, and a lot of things have changed. Basically, It's a band of guys who like bad-assed tones played through the equipment of the early 60's. That pretty much describes the Neptunes sound. See what you think! We hope you enjoy, Davey Jones House Band.
