Price: $10.00
Artist: Hemmit

Keith Fleming joined the fold for their 2008 sophomore effort, another heavy payload of punkish power rock that again is brimming with influences like The Ramones, AC/DC, 60’s rock, The Vines, Judas Priest and Ozzy ripping through Portland’s strum-along indie scene.  Shunning all strings except the low E, (“it’s heavier that way”) Keith Fleming crafted songs on a borrowed bass guitar, bringing demos to band practice in the basement of Portland’s “School of Rock” for the full-on Hemmit-rock treatment.  Keith happily provides a little further insight on the Hemmit sound - “I like the balls-out energy of punk combined with hooky power pop melodies. The Ramones, The Hives, The Vines, Matthew Sweet, Bob Mould/Sugar, Superdrag – if it has a loud guitar and a melody, I like it.  I wrote the tunes for this album, and brought them into practice for a thumbs up/thumbs down. Adam is a great producer, and most of his feedback was ‘it needs to be faster’.  And he was right!”  He sure was!  TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE MULTI-PURCHASE OFFER!  GET ALL 5 HEMMIT CDs FOR JUST $40!  IF PAYING BY CREDIT CARD, YOUR CARD WILL BE CHARGED THE SPECIAL PRICE.  IF PAYING VIA PAYPAL, YOU WILL BE REFUNDED THE APPROPRIATE DISCOUNT.  EXCELLENT!!
