Just To Be Musicians: Loren Dircks Aaron Johnson Neil Harry Craig Hunt Nick Augustine Bart Blue Rachel Dircks Debbie Patrick Beverly Clutch All Songs written by Loren Dircks Recorded at Arange-A-Twang, Catalina, Arizona Mastered by Jack Miller Country Metal Tele Slinger Loren Dircks (Gila Bend) from Tucson, Arizona delivers a set of tunes ranging from fun and free to deep and brooding. Packed with big guitars and original melodies, Killing the Magic will thrill your ears and make you happy. Killing the Magic is a collection of new material from Loren Dircks, the frontman from Tucson's country metal terror Gila Bend and frequent Al Perry band member. From searing desert twang to heartfelt tearjerkers, LD is cranking it up and calling 'em out. The CD opens with pure pop on More Than Life Itself, blending banjo and french horn with big guitars to stomp out a haunting melody. You Run Like a Wild Horse ventures into hillbilly dance beat land and will have you singing along on the first listen. Guitar Hero Gone is a gloves-off commentary on corporate efforts to water down art for mass consumption. SEE VIDEO ON YOU TUBE. Halfhearted Karaoke is a gutbustingly funny rocker with a tragic twist ala Red Sovine. Still Called Today features the wailing steel guitar of Neil Harry in a piece that expresses the urgency of love and the need for overlooking a checkered past. I AM is a rough riding reality check that bridges the gap from Lou Rawls to Roger Miller. Harder Than It Ever Was laments the futility of the day to day down the drain with fat beefy Les Paul love. Track 8, inspired by a powerfully deep fortune cookie sentiment, looks down the barrel of mortality and on to the beyond in Everything Will Now Come Your Way. You're Makin' Me Move is a swingin' twangy twister with a read-between-the-lines host of double entendres and tin foil hat fun. Stick With Me Girl, with its greasy groovin guitar and booty shakin' bass, serves up a tale of irresponsibility and hopeless happiness. On a Sad Note... deep dark despair intertwined with jazzy acoustic work and a Roy Orbison wail to mess up your mood. Last track, Just to Be is a fitting chaser and closes the record with the realization that wallowing in sorrows just doesn't work the way it used to. Killing the Magic is L.D.s first full CD since Gila Bend's late nineties release Natureburger (San Jacinto) and is just the beginning of a whole lot more to come. www.LorenDircks.com
