Product Notes

Leash on Life is a return to form for the Midwest's R.Mutt. With 11 songs fleshed out during long practices and writing sessions, this album finds the band back to blending styles and feels with little attention paid to any given genre. The overall tone of the album is set in the first 4 songs which showcase the type of story telling that the band brought in Heptane married with the drive and excitement delivered on Earth to Guy. The addition of guitarist Dan Power has brought back to the band the dueling guitar sounds that were it's original trademark. Ron Thornton and Dan seamlessly trade off lead and rhythm parts blurring the lines along the way. The original rhythm section of Jim Dier and Paul Leckie is reunited on this record with powerful results. With Dan Whitaker back at school lead singing duties fell squarely on Ron and Jim who traded back and forth in true R. Mutt fashion. With the full band in the studio working together so well the background vocals became much more intricate and wound up more well executed. Long time friend of the band, Joe Bellante, coached the band through some interesting vocal effects on both I Hope You Know and Dynamo. Two songs came together initially as collaborations between Jim and local Milwaukee furniture builder, Michael Stodola. Spinout and The Tale of Bobby A are both stories of the challenges faced by boys becoming men. Spinout was inspired by a Colin Berry written piece that originally caught Jim's attention while The Tale of Bobby A is a remembering of a boyhood story from Michael's days growing up in Nebraska. In the end, this album represents R. Mutt again as a band. Writing and performing the music that has been kicking your ears' asses since 1988.
