You’re The Girl For Me- garage trash?

January 29, 2011 1 comment

You’re The Girl For Me is the Mike Haskins Experience in garage trash mode. This tune was featured in Bag O’ Wire’s 2009/10 live sets, with Curtis Hawkins on lead vocals. Bob and Russell from BOW provide the raunchy rhythms here. The scooter girl is showing an outfit from Lizzy Enger’s 2008 line as featured in the Quadrophenia stage play.

On The Other Side is the latest release from It’s Time For…The Mike Haskins Experience, the 2010 song collection that I recorded with help from my friends in Bag O’ Wire and The Big Guns. Jim and Devin from The Big Guns played on this song. Get loose, float on.

The third song from It’s Time For…The Mike Haskins Experience is Walk Across The Sun. What’s with the pictures, you ask? These are just some images that I think about when I hear the songs. Kinda like a picture sleeve for the 45 single. This pic is from the Karen Walker Eyewear 2010 Collection.
Relax, enjoy.

This is another song from the batch that I wrote and recorded in 2010. Nothing To Lose But Your Mind was featured in Bag O’ Wire’s 2010 live set with Curtis Hawkins on lead vocal. Here’s my take on it. Please, enjoy.

New recordings from Mike Haskins!

January 22, 2011 2 comments

I just finished recording some of my songs in 2010. My friends from The Big Guns and Bag O’ Wire backed me on the tracks recorded at Ash Creek Estates Recorders; John “JP” Painter mixed and mastered at the Kitchen Studio in Dallas, TX.  I laughably dubbed this The Mike Haskins Experience, and now the name has stuck. This stuff is in the style of sixties garage and psyche. I have been inspired on this project by The 13th Floor Elevators, Count Five, The Troggs, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Seeds, The Chocolate Watch Band, The Kinks, etc.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy “It’s Time For…The Mike Haskins Experience.”

Today’s offering is Let Your Little Mind Fly.
