The ever collectible, rare and elusive American Buckshot demo called Delightful. 138 copies were released to the general public. Family and Friends got copies with extra songs. Recorded and Mixed live to tape at Digital Insight in under 6 hours for like $200 on February 20th, 2009, this collection of songs was the result of long hours of practice in Dean's front room in the scarcely populated part of the desert and a handful of raucous gigs we had under our pyramid studded belts. This release was a total DIY project, with the CD's being printed at Home and the CD cases being put together by hand, and it was Dean's brilliant idea to put actual buckshot pellets in the spines of each case, acting like a maraca of some sorts whenever you picked the CD up. We sat around Dean's felt topped poker table cracking open 12 gauge shotgun shells while drinking beer, which just goes to show you how dedicated and deranged we were to make this demo of ours a memorable one. Originally, it was supposed to have samples from Casino and Goodfellas in between each song, and some radio chatter from Dean's military squadron as well, but after mixing the samples in we didn't like the way it sounded and just released the songs as they were. There were 3 more songs recorded in this session that were never released (Train Hoppin', Hammer and a cover of R.A.M.O.N.E.S. by Motörhead) that may or may not see the light of day sometime soon, but who knows. And no, I don't know why the songs are numbered the way they are. Ask Dean about that one. American Buckshot has a Facebook page which you can see by clicking here. Like us and keep up on what's going on with us as far as gigs and recordings go. Anyways, enjoy!
