Practice is fun, not necessarily the way to perfection
people give us constant inspiration for writing music. Sometimes it's a good
inspiration, sometimes bad.
If we record anything we do it usually in one take.
We love to record.
We would like to thank here several people who helped us - recently and in the past - all that to happen: Chris Bolster, Andy 'Hippy' Baldwin, Thomas Queyja, Dawid Gorgolewski, Jan Kurczewski, Lisa Huersing, Brett Broadway, Adam Ellerbrock, Nate Clum, Nate Parkin and Sławek Papis.
Also our appreciation goes to: Best Pub Osowa, Stolarnia Art Studio, Osso Studio, Abbey Road Studios and Metropolis Studios in London, the Lip Studio (LA), Proud Larry's, the Gin, Forrester's, Lafayette's and other great venues in Oxford, Meridian and Memphis.
Huge thank you also to all people playing our music worldwide. Special thanks to: Michelle Ward, Paul Goulder and Jeff Fekete.
And to Tyler Keith and the Neckbones. "Eyeful" was the main inspiration for Wojciech to play music on more serious basis. Y'all please check Tyler Keith's solo albums as well as the Neckbones and other bands he has played with.
We are Snakedoctors
We are a rock band formed in May of 2020. In July we recorded our first songs. In August we came up with 13 song first unofficial and unpublished friends & family demo CD album “stonegravity”.
In August and September we recorded new songs for first official album “Obligation” that was out on 22nd of December. After releasing four singles in March we released a new single "A Song" promoting our second album "Joy Free Bowl" - due to be out in May. The second single from that album "Cecil Has Changed" will be out on 9th of April (2021).
We also recorded songs for our third studio album "Mellow Joy" due to be out in October - November of 2021. The final mixing & mastering touches are done in Abbey Road Studios and Metropolis Studios in London.
We're already recording songs for our fourth album.
All our albums so far have been mixed and mastered by Chris Bolster from Abbey Road Studios in London, Andres 'Hippy' Baldwin from Metropolis Studios in London and and my friend Tom Queyja from The Lip Studio in LA.
Pandemic doesn't allow to play shows and promote music. So we try to use that time to create and record. We are four friends having fun playing music together.
Snakedoctors are: lead vocals and guitar - Wojciech Wypych (formerly of the Implants formerly known as the Shriners and Splinter, bands from Oxford, MS), bass - Jaroslaw Szybowski, keyboard and vocals - Jacek Karnat and drumms - Robert Porazka. We quote grunge, new wave and hill country blues as inspirations.
Or do something better. Especially in those difficult times. Let's keep music alive. And support all people working around music, like music available out there, streaming shows with whatever we can donations, merchandise (profits are often shared with staff) and let's keep studio engineers busy. And first of all - y'all stay safe and in good health.
