Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

If you've been to Rockbar the past few Wednesdays, you might've noticed something missing, namely the affable hosts of Jinxed! There's a good reason for that. Your hosts, Eric Halborg and William Murphy from the Swayback, have been holed up in L.A. for the past week recording with legendary knob twidler Andy Johns, who, as you're probably aware, is the guy who manned the boards for classic albums by Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones and produced Television's Marquee Moon. Our boy Halborg just sent over a few words about the session and some pics, both of which we've posted after the jump.

Dr Dave -

I attached some pictures from today's recording session with Andy Johns.. We are recording at Serenity Sound Studio on Hollywood Blvd in Los Angles. In the last two days we have recorded the basics for two new songs "Keep It Hive" and "Steam Rolling"

Turns out Swayback and Andy Johns are on the same frequency.

It's not surprising; the records he's made have been in our heads constantly since we could push the power button on a stereo.

Andy even took one of the pictures of us playing in the studio.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
