New Boss same as the... wait, nevermind

It had to happen sooner or later and after 27 years, four self produced records and an EP, it is offically later.   We are proud to announce that our upcoming record is being produced by Kevin Blackwell of Portland based Sassparilla (Fluff & Gravy.)

Kevin has known the band since the early 90's when his first band, Blue Utah, shared the stage with us in and around Milwaukee.   Former R. Mutt guitarist, Dan Power, also played with Kevin in Blue Utah.

Besides engaging with us as we finalized song structures and arrangements, Kevin engineered and ran all the tracking and overdub sessions through early Spring and is getting ready to track our vocals.

Most recently, Blackwell produced the latest Hillstomp full length, Portland, Ore, and also co-produced the new Sassparilla record, Pasajero/Hullabaloo.

Kevin promises to help birth a new record that more deeply embodies the inner essence of R. Mutt or something like that, we really can't remember.   After he said he would do the editing and mixing, we just said "Yes."
