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).

News UPDATE

First up I’ve got some BIG shows to announce:

  • The Guns – Thursday February 4th @ Lindberg’s (Springfield, MO) – This is part of The TAG Magazine monthly showcase. This will be The Guns first show, and first chance to buy a copy of the album.
  • The Rugs  and Matthew Darkly – Saturday February 20th @ The Studio (Springfield, MO) – We’re going to be filming and recording this show for future releases. If you’re going to be in SGF that day drop us a line at info@moodringrecords.com, we’ll try and get you in the audience.
  • The Rugs and Chuck Berry – Saturday March 27 @ The Pageant (Saint Louis, MO) – This is a thrill and honor to play such a great venue and open for such a legend. We couldn’t be more excited!

Next, The Guns Silencer EP is now available for download on Amazon.com and Emusic.com (More stores including iTunes to follow in the upcoming weeks)

I have a new Moodring’s song almost done. I’ll probably post it this week. This is the third song Matt and I have put together for this project. When we get a few more done we’ll be releasing it as an EP.

Lou Whitney and Donnie Thompson’s album “Book Of Matthew Darkly” is about halfway mixed. I hope to have it out in March. It’s coming together nicely. If you haven’t heard the song’s I leaked check them out here.

The Rugs – unreleased live audio and video

Back on January 31 2008 The Rugs played at The Patton Alley Pub in Springfield, MO for a birthday bash. We knew it was gonna be a heck of a show so we rolled audio tape to capture the event. Royalwood Video Productions filmed the set as well. You can find the video on our Vimeo page.

We’re very happy with the way the show turned out. We had a blast celebrating our birthdays and playing for our friends. These songs don’t appear on either Rugs record.
