SATURDAY NIGHT ANGELS

A radical shift in style and direction, this record is the result of Alan Slimak’s return to to the band on drums and a more refined and immediate approach to songwriting. The music is loud, but delicate, and each song is an entire world of its own. From the catchy opener, “Feel the Same” to the epic closer, “Into the Night,” it is clear that this collection of songs is unlike anything the band has ever recorded.

Listen to songs from this album at our facebook or MySpace page.

The drums were recorded by Mark Reiter of the Daycare Swindlers at a warehouse in Northern Virginia. Everything else was recorded by RCR at their own private studio. Mark Reiter also mastered the record. The artwork was created by Gregor Koerting of SPECTERY.

WE NAME THE GUILTY MEN (2009 REDUX)

In 1999, TSB Records released a collection of poorly-recorded songs with a creaky drum machine, RCR’s first album, “We Name the Guilty Men.” Sean Wolfe of the Stiletto Boys was on vocals. Later that year, John Mark recorded a bunch of demos on his own which were not released until 2004 on Magnatune Records as “Middle Age Suicide.” The songs were good (mostly), but the recording quality was substandard.

While working on Saturday Night Angels, the band took a break and recorded the best 12 songs from these two collections. The result is the 10th Anniversary Redux of We Name Guilty Men, a high-octane, high-fidelity document of the band’s earliest, snottiest sound.
