Beatallica “Abbey Load” In Stores April 16th 2013

Beatallica Abbey Load Cover Mini RGB 500

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

MASH-UP MASTERS BEATALLICA READY NEW RELEASE, 'ABBEY LOAD'

You've got to tip your hat to the lads in Beatallica. Few would have thought to merge together two of the most successful acts of their respective genres - pop tunesmiths the Beatles and thrash metal bashers Metallica - and create a must-hear, creative blend of both iconic artists. And the band that contains such wittily named band members as Jaymz Lennfield, Kliff McBurtney, Ringo Larz, and Grg III are back with their third full-length overall, 'Abbey Load,' on April 16th via Oglio Records (a label that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year).

"Overall the album is our darkest," explains Lennfield. "Not sure why it turned out that way, to be honest. We didn't realize it til we got to listening to the first mixes. It sounds brooding in places. Not like we tuned down any more or played any stoner rock or anything. But the overall vibe is deeper than other projects we've done. Maybe it's cuz the Beatles Abbey Road was the last release for them - like the end of an era. And we were placing our fingers on that. After a while, I got to embrace that whole vibe. Beatallica is always fun and interesting, and yes there are 'candy' songs on the album such as 'Help!' and 'I Saw Her Standing There'... but there is something more foreboding about Abbey Load than what we initially thought."

Once more, Beatallica have successfully found links between both aforementioned bands, most notably on the album's tour de force, "Abbey Load Medley." "The medley...well, it's obviously one of the great famous pieces of rock music," says Lennfield. "We really enjoyed working in NEWER Metallica tunes. Folks always ask us how much old stuff from Metallica we can use. Helloooo...they have a LARGE catalog, so use it!. Those tunes work great, plus the fact that we are doing what we always do: deal with tempo, time signature, rhythm patterns, keys from major to minor, adding our own riffs, etc., but now we have to make all the songs in the medley sound like they fit. Not just one song at a time, but now five songs, bang-bang-bang.. The challenge was irresistible."

As for Beatallica's plans for 2013, Lennfield predicts some good, old-fashioned global roadwork. "Well, we'd like to finally hit Japan. It's just way overdue. We have US folks asking for us to come back so we'll see how to best route. As far as Europe, they are starting to consider the fall sometime."

"Beatallica is so much more than a novelty cover band," adds Oglio Records founder Carl Caprioglio. "Beatallica's members and producer are among the most creative and talented people I have encountered in my years with Oglio Records. Their ability to blend influences from these two legendary bands is as amazing and impressive today as it was when we met in 2006."

Imagine what the Beatles' 'Abbey Road' would have sounded like if it had been originally released by Metallica, and you have a good starting point for 'Abbey Load.'

Their collaboration was documented in the Oglio Home Video release “The Third Mind” and brought to life in this all new album of thought provoking poetry.

The Doors were influenced by the 1960s beatniks and that spirit continues with this collaboration. When asked “What’s the difference between Jim Morrison’s rock lyrics and a poem?” Ray responded that “There really is no difference between Jim’s poetry writings and his music lyrics.”

Jim Morrison introduced Michael McClure to Ray during the recording sessions for “Waiting For The Sun.” That fateful meeting is still bearing fruit today with “The Piano Poems: Live From San Francisco.”

PRESS RELEASE

Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling To Release New Comedy Album

Entitled ‘snart’ For Oglio Records On 4/20

Los Angeles - Radio personality, stand-up comedian, comedy writer, singer-songwriter, author and actor Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling follows up on his classic album F. Jackie with his new comedy album entitled snart, his sixth album of stand-up comedy for his long time label Oglio Records, distributed by Fontana/Universal in the U.S. and INGrooves internationally. The CD version of snart comes with a bonus DVD containing over two hours of visuals.

“I'm sure that you think I think snart's a great name for a dirty joke CD because it's concise, and reminiscent of snot, and fart, etc. Maybe that’s all true. Maybe that, and even more is true. Maybe. But snart's an abbreviation. I've always maintained that telling dirty jokes on stage is an art, ...'s an art, ...'s n' art, ...snart. I love jokes, and I've remembered every one I've come across since 1954. This is the sixth comedy CD I've filled with 78 minutes of the very best of those jokes, all performed "live" in front of other people who love jokes, too. I hope you enjoy listening, and that you'll also pass along these jokes night after night, much the way I do.”

- Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling

Jackie Martling is best known for having been a long-time cast member and head writer of the legendary Howard Stern Show from 1986-2001. He can currently be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, hosting "Jackie's Joke Hunt" on Howard 101 Tuesdays at 7 pm EST. First hitting the comedy stage in 1979, Jackie's been a national headliner since the early 80's and has also appeared in many independent films and television shows including as himself in The Howard Stern Show Paramount film, Private Parts.

Jackie “The Joke Man” Martlin boasts a catalog of over thirty joke products, CD’s, DVD’s, books, electronic joke gadgets for adults and children, and joke by-products by his own Jokeland, Inc. Also to Jackie's credit, "Use Your Finger! (516) 922-WINE", the world's longest running dirty joke line, just celebrated it's 30th fun-filled year.

“Jackie Martling is cut from the same cloth as the greatest comedians of all time. His style, experience, and amazing ability to make people laugh put him into this elite group. Jackie has never sounded better or more comfortable on stage and ‘snart’ reflects this. I'm proud of this this release and I am proud to be working with Jackie on our 8th project together.”

- Carl Caprioglio

snart is Jackie’s sixth comedy record and eighth record overall for Oglio Records. His previous catalog includes F. Jackie, Hot Dogs + Donuts, Sgt. Pecker, The Joke Man and Come Again?.
