Rough Cuts

Rough Cuts is an album that evolved from three separate projects dating back to 2013. First, there was the desire to make a new album to supersede Right to Remain Silent. Second, there was a wish to write a set of songs for a blues-rock outfit. Third, receiving correspondence from Moni Voev (of Art Generation fame) to see about writing a new song together (for the first time in 20 years!)

The result of the collaboration with Moni is the opening track of the album, All Systems Go.

The unifying concept behind the album was that it should be written and recorded well, but without any frills or over-bearing production values. While this has been achieved, there are certainly more production ‘frills’ than were originally intended.

This is a collection of songs of which Mechkov is immensely proud, having come from a pool of projects at least twice the number of these that made it to the album. Each number has elements very personal to the writer, but also, in the true tradition of pop and rock music, these elements are somewhat hidden behind a thin veil of ambiguity.

Once the songs had been mixed down, further tweaks were made by Andy Neve of Neve Music, who then mastered the album. Hhe has done an amazing job.

So often bands and artists come out with statements such as :"This is their best work ever" whether it is or not. Well, this really is Mechkov's best work ever. We really hope you enjoy it.
