The Book Of Matthew

Lou Whitney & D. Clinton Thompson The Book Of Matthew

(released – October 2010)

Produced by D. Clinton Thompson, Recorded and Mixed by Lou Whitney at The Studio in Springfield, MO. Mastered by Randy Kling in Nashville, TN. All Songs written by Matthew Darkly. Copyright 2010 Moodring Records.

Producer/Engineer and bass player Lou Whitney and guitar hero D. Clinton Thompson teamed up to make “The Book Of Matthew”. D Clinton Thompson hates to see a good song go to waste.With a handful of protégée Matthew Darkly’s demos that never quite fit in anywhere else, and longtime creative partner Lou Whitney at the helm, Thompson set out to make an album of quirky heart-breaking ballads and dark, but sugar-sweet pop songs.

They find the place where Burt Bacharach and Alice Cooper meet, and it’s good to be there.All instruments but the bass guitar were played by D. Clinton Thompson. Lou covered the bass. The vocals were all sang by D. Clinton Thompson except background parts on “Get A Phone” (sang by Cindy Woolf), “Love Like Medicine”, and “Moon Was A Lie” (both sang by Matt Carlock).

Matthew Darkly – Matthew Darkly

(released in September 2010)

This is the first full length studio album Matthew Darkly has recorded as a solo artist. In 2009 Matt and Eric Schuchmann began playing as a three piece  band. Matt – guitar & vocals, Eric – bass, and a drum machine. This was  in an attempt to perform more of Matt’s songs that didn’t quite fit with The Rugs.

In February 2010 they began recording an album at The Studio, overdubs were done at The Darkly Mansion, and mixing was done back at The Studio.

All Songs written by Matthew Darkly. Produced and performed by Eric Schuchmann and Matthew Darkly. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Eric Schuchmann.


Back in the Studio…

This week Eric is headed back to The Studio to finish up a the first full length Matthew Darkly album.

We also hope to get the album artwork wrapped up on the Lou Whitney and D. Clinton Thompson album “The Book of Matthew” sometime this week.

In other news, congratulations to Matthew Darkly and his wife on the birth of their first child. Avery Darkly was born July 28, 2010.
