Spanish Archer One / Various
Back in October 2006, 4 close friends and fellow musicians, had a dream...nay...a vision. We saw that the only way to conquer the music scene, in a city with a population larger than that of some mid-western states, was to band together and become a powerful force; a force to be, as most powerful forces would claim to be, reckoned with. This is Spanish Archer Records. After a very lengthy screening process, we decided on the 12 bands that would best suit our purposes. Van Halen and George Thorogood & the Destroyers, however, were surprisingly difficult to get a hold of, so we decided that it would be in everyone's best interest to cut the group down to 10 bands. Over the next few months, we accepted submissions from these artists to be compiled onto an album that would, if everything went as planned, melt the face off of Rock, and roll forever. We are pleased to be working with Bon Reve, Boug Bishop, Cannonball Fun, Cosmo Speedway, Crystal Antlers, Debate Team, The Hard To Get, The Modlins, Parklights, and Sons and Lovers - the first ten. These bands have generously and thoughtfully submitted tracks for the purpose of Spanish Archer One, the first of many great music compilations. The songs were strategically and meticulously arranged for maximum aural pleasure. We ultimately turned down numerous offers from award winning graphic design teams, and after much searching and debate, decided to enlist the talents of a great man, known only by his last name: Oshiro. Forged out of the smoldering embers of cigarette buts and bathed in the grease of Hickory Burgers, the Spanish Archer One CD jacket was realized. It is now our great pleasure to humbly submit this breathtaking, trans-generational, compilation tour de force - a force so powerful that only in the individual bands participating, can a brighter musical day be seen.
