The new release, “Resist to Exist” is currently in the mastering stage and will be coming to you asap!
It was recorded at Red Planet Recording in Hobart (by Stew and Jake Long), and also at my home in Melbourne, Australia, mixed by Dennis Leeflang, will be mastered by Andy Van Dette, and the cover art, is by Dan Verkys.
Joining me on the tracks as always is my bro Mathew Szkup (drums, guitars, backing vocals), Paul Jolley (keys), Lyris Hung (strings), Brian Sanders (cello), Adrian Bryan (strings), and Dennis Leeflang (tribal drums), and tracklisting follows:
“Music is Free”
“Gift of Life:
Sadly for me being a real music love that is totally into physical releases, the way things are in 2014 it just couldn’t happen for “Resist to Exist”, and therefore this will be released via the usual digital outlets only. I will try and throw in some extras for anyone that wants to buy it direct from me as opposed to going through iTunes and the like though. More on that soon!
Yet another sneak peak into the new music coming your way very soon! Unfortunately Skube (drums / lead guitar) and Paul Jolley (keys) couldn’t make it due to living in Tasmania and England respectively, so instead you get the CS Trio for the footage!
Here’s some more video from my new music to come. This will be in the second lot of songs, and it’s the heavier stuff from the bunch for the most part. The nature of the music calls for some really aggressive “digging in” on certain bends and things, but my Elixir strings were totally holding their tune despite the punishment – love those things!!!
Just a tiny peak at the new music I’ll have coming very soon. Joining me on these songs is my bro in life and music, Mr Mathew Szkup, who you’ll see rocking out in this video for a moment!
The audio here is unmastered but I hope you dig it all the same and I’m sure you’ll agree that the mixing by Mr Dennis Leeflang crushes!
Hey folks! The EP tracks are coming up great – at the time of writing we’re six mixes into things. More on that soon!
This week Mr Dennis Leeflang added some tribal drums on one of the tracks and he’s posted the drum only files up on his soundcloud page – check it out and tell my what you think!!
Last year, The Feckers recorded a medley of songs for an upcoming tribute album to legendary Ohio rockers The Godz!
The line up for our track (known as “N.I.S. medley”) is as follows:
Roy Bratbakken – Lead Vocals
Rob Smith – Backing Vocals
Paul Jolley – Piano
Ponch Satrio – Lead Guitars
Chris Szkup – Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitars, Backing Vocals
Dennis Leeflang – Drums / Mixing
I’m stoked to say that it’s coming out on May 13th, and available for pre-order now at http://www.thegodzofficial.com/ !!
I read good things about it, so I’ve taken the plunge into the land of Instagram!
Feel free to follow me there ( @eatpopslop ) and I’ll return the favour!
If you’re in Melbourne this coming Saturday night, I’ll be playing at Edwards Place in Reservoir with the mighty Irene Slade doing a few Feckers tunes and a few covers. As always, I’ll have CD’s with me for discounted rates.
See you there! 😀

Here’s video from today’s recording!! While I was setting up my hot sauce order arrived so I thought I’d go all foodie for the first part of the video and preview them.
