Mr. Anonymous is the brainchild of Jeep MacNichol, former Samples
drummer, former solo
artist and now music industry veteran leading his newest musical
vision. Champion Sound takes
his sound into new territory and by the sound of the tracks displays a
maturity in organic musicianship
as compared to the previous electronica influenced releases – Mr.
Anonymous 1 & 2. The drumming on CS is
very strong – one can definitely tell that the CD was explicitly
oriented around percussion and
Mr. Anonymous has produced a body of work that is as unique and fresh
as anyone I have ever
heard. As an underground phenomenon, an upstart so to speak, Mr. A
“brings it” to Champion
Sound with a fresh organic feel using only live drums, bass, and
guitars and even live horns.
The sound behind the album is a mix of reggae, dub, soca, and jazz,
and as the founder Jeep MacNichol
states, “my approach going into the album was to create a vibe like a
mix of The Clash’s Black Market Clash and Miles Davis’s Kind Of Blue.
I wanted a raw analog punk production where the singers sound like
they’re sitting in the room with you.”
Mr. A has an approach of being able to work with
different Â musical influences and combine them on tracks seamlessly
which are highlighted by unique
instrumentation. Guest appearances by the likes of Sly and Robbie,
Dave Wakeling, and Ranking Roger as well as others can
be heard on Mr. Anonymous 1&2. The future certainly looks bright
for the musician with live performances locally in Colorado, and
consistent radio support by
local stations including KGNU and Greenlightradio.com.
Mr. Anonymous’ Champion Sound is a very unique lively reggae vibe that
certainly deserves a listen. His
band is scheduled for live dates in the Colorado area, and the CD is
planned for release on the 1st
of December and will be downloadable from the website on the 2nd of
December. The band is
open to booking and anyone interested should contact them.
