Supreme Love Gods – We Are All Together EP
All profits raised will be donated to Crew Nation. Available as a digital download, but there’s also an opportunity for fans to aid a crowd funder via Bandcamp in order to continue to raise vital funds for Crew Nation with a limited edition vinyl release.
OLI Records are delighted to present a wonderfully collaborative charity project from the 90’s California-based alternative rock band, Supreme Love Gods. All profits raised will be donated to Crew Nation.
Spearheaded by Tommy Joy and his desire to help, he contacted his old bandmates and a host of other friends from his extensive career, and they put together the new charity EP, ‘We Are All Together’, out August 13th via One Little Independent Records. All profits from the project will be donated to Crew Nation, a charity extending a helping hand to those who found themselves out of work during the pandemic.
The EP collects four versions of their original track ‘Souled Out’, with additional mixes/remixes done by Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Phenomenal Handclap Band. They repurposed the old masters, circa 1992 for this project, including the lead vocals, backing vocals, guitars, bass guitar and horn section. They sent a basic new mix of the song (‘We Are All Together’) to contributors and asked them to play/sing whatever they wanted, using whatever instrument they preferred. In the end, they had more than 30 contributors with over 150 tracks to mix. Recent additions include everything from handclaps to vocals, guitars, synths and even a saw (Pall Jenkins).
The outcome is a four-track medley, a cross-genre cacophony pinned down by the original infectious hook. A no holds barred fusion of everything from rock to hip-hop. In parts, the era-defining bagginess can’t help but seep through, such as with Phenomenal Handclap Band; in others, we’re offered industrial and techno variations. Also included is 15-year-old rapper Jan Thompson who features with his topical verse.
