Press Release: Homemade Blood

Interview: BAM Magazine

Produced by Eric Westfall & Chuck Prophet

(Cooking Vinyl, 1997)


A must own! The mighty post-rehab-middle class-come back record. With a killer home team line up of Paulo Revelli, Max Butler, Anders Rundblad and Stephie Finch.

Recorded live during a ten-day period at San Francisco's Toast studios with producer Eric Westfall (known for his work for Giant Sand and the Sidewinders) and mixed by Boston-based engineers Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade (who have worked with Dinosaur Jr., Morphine, Hole, and Radiohead), Homemade Blood contained many songs inspired by a detoxification break Prophet took in 1996 at his parents suburban East Bay home to wean himself off drugs. The album also saw Prophet returning to simpler recording methods and showcased the talents of a mature musician. "Everything was a reaction to spending too much time in the control room on the last record. I wanted to have some fun with the songs and break out of the singer/songwriter mold," he said to Sullivan. Homemade Blood held the number one position on the German Rolling Stone critics' poll for several months. (MusicianGuide)
