It appears Cheap Trick were so inspired by their time in the studio with
Chicago producer Steve Albini, that instead of cutting a new version of their
classic "Downed" for their upcoming Sub Pop single, they recorded a brand new
song, "Baby No More," that will serve as the A-side. The B-side will still be a
cover of The Move's "Brontosaurus."
ATN has also learned that the
full-length Cheap Trick album we told you about a few weeks ago will be coming
out on Castle Records, home of Motorhead and Ugly Kid Joe. A source at the
sessions told us that Castle had a video crew on hand in the tiny studio to
document the historic meeting of the minds between Albini and Trick and that
when the new Bush video came on during some downtime, Albini hushed everybody
and looked on like a proud coach.
