Live Record: Sons of Huns

They had me at “the name of this song is ‘I’m Your Dad.'”


Booked following an epic PALS Clubhouse event, at which the force of their rocking spurred the fighting-est mosh pit I’ve ever seen at a house show (1), we knew we were in for a good set at our October 21st, 2011 secret event. We were not disappointed. Sons of Huns – Peter Hughes (guitar and vocals), Shoki Tanabe (bass and vocals) and Ryan Northrop (drums) – delivered blistering, face-melting rock that shook the ‘Stand and its audience for nearly an hour. Our recordings of their performance then benefited from a great mixing and mastering job by Pat Kearns and Mark Brachmann at PermaPress Recording. The resulting live record is an excellent document of one of our favorite up-and-coming bands, and one which we’re proud to maintain in our archive and make available to you for the low-low price of pay-what-you-want.


If you enjoy this recording, please consider purchasing it (via the link above) or donating (via the link in the sidebar). All proceeds go to bands, mixers, and to support the ‘Stand’s activities. Hope you like the record!

Brian David Smith handled design and layout for album art, which includes original photography from various ‘Standers and the original show poster, also by Brian. The Banana Stand would like to thank Sons of Huns (Peter, Ryan and Shoki), all who participated in this album’s creation and anyone that has helped us out along the way.
