What's that noise ?
|Demo 2003 : 3d demo, 2 tracks , 1 take !|
demo has been recorded the way a demo is supposed to be recorded (especially
with a $0.00 budget) : in 1 take, on 2
tracks. Everybody in one room, and roll it. No overdubs, no multitrack, no cut-and-paste.
As a result, you get an idea of what to expect during a gig with Bad Luke & The Happy Few featuring The Horny Sexion anno 2003.
|Gee I wish
(Milton Love/Sam Phillips, arr. Duke Robillard)
This swing just HAD to be recorded, when you are lucky enough to play with a 3 piece horn section. We based our version on Duke Robillard's interpretation on "Duke's Blues". Wonderful record, by a fabulous musician. The Horny Sexion gets a place in the spotlight on the intro and even more so at the end. ALL NIGHT LONG!!

|Baby please don't lie to me
( Kim Wilson)
Straightforward up-tempo bluessong, with guitarsolo from Chris "El" Vits. Simple but efficient horn arrangement (look mum, a rhyme). Watch out for the very first second: turn the volume down a little bit, especially if you're listening with headphones...

|Don't touch me
(Johnny Guitar Watson, arr. Kim Wilson, Ronnie Cuber)
Johnny "Guitar" Watson ! One of our favorites. This time with a real tearjerker. Too bad I can't show you the Horny Sexion's choreography during live performances! The horn arrangement is based on Kim Wilson's version on "Tigerman". And El Vits gets a little carried away on this one...

|Rocks in my bed
(Duke Ellington, arr. Roomful of Blues, adapted by BL & THF)
this means a jazzy song, very slow blues, with Joeri
Wingelinckx on the trumpet in a very prominent role, and Willy
Janssens in a very nice and delicate baritone sax solo. And Hans
gets a great opportunity to show his vocal skills.
|MP3 (5,30 Mb)||MP3 (519 Kb)|
(Jackie Brenston, arr. BL & THF)
A real fifties
R&B classic, officially credited to Jackie Brenston & His
Delta Cats, but in reality a song by Ike Turner, with Jackie
Brenston on tenor sax and vocals. Considered by many as the very first
Rock&Roll recording in history, a story contested by many others. If
you want to know the complete story, including the original lyrics +

|One room country shack
(Johnny Guitar Watson, arr. BL & THF)
There's our Johnny
again: 2nd cover of this great blueslegend on our demo (after "Don't touch
me"), and in our early days we also used to play "Half Pint of Whiskey"
"Gangster of Love".

So, what do you think? Great music? A big pile of sh...? Please let us know on Bad Luke's Guestbook. And don't worry: we can take some bad critics... as long as we're allowed to answer :-)
|Demo 1999: our previous demo-CD|
You can find some samples here from our previous demo-CD, in Real Audio G2 format (min. 28.8kbps modem). If you haven't got RealPlayer yet, you can go and get it at: http://www.real.com/products/player . But don't forget to come back here afterwards! (Or better still, bookmark this website...)
These recordings were also our first attempt to play with a horn section (on 2 songs). Willy Janssens played the baritone sax, then stuck around for a while, and today he's one of The Horny Sexion's three permanent members.
This CD was recorded in Meise (Belgium), in march 1999, by these poor lonesome cowboys:
|Vocals, backing vocals:||Hans "Boekes" Deboeck|
|Guitar:||Chris "de Nèr" Vits|
|Piano, Hammond:||Dirk Maes|
|Bass, backing vocals:||Alain "Provist" Janssen|
|Drum:||Philippe "Fluppel" Schoovaerts|
|Percussion on ( 4 ) and ( 9 ):||Rudy Opdenacker, Thor, BL & THF|
|Extra backing vocal on ( 1 ), ( 5 ), ( 9 ):||Mike Brunswick|
|Bariton Sax:||Willy Janssens|
|Alt Sax:||Christian Duvelier|
|First (old) demo: what we used to sound like...|
Here you can listen to our very first demotape. Please note though that this tape has been recorded somewhere in '96, with another rhythmsection, with a harpplayer that has left the band in '97, in fact there are only 3 members from that session that still play in the band today (Hans, Chris and I). So it isn't representative anymore, but it's still fun to here what we were doing back then.
First try to stream the demos, but if the connection gives too much trouble (it's just http-streaming), there's still the option of downloading the files seperately, to listen directly from your hard-disk.
