A Stitch in Time is a new EP that includes 5 songs from the original repertoire from “Hot
Nasho and Himself Orchestra ”(One Man Band) arranged this time for his
Being the second work released as a band under the name of Hot Nasho, this time Nacho Mena
(guitar, vocals) is accompanied by Alfonso Herrero on bass and Fran Mata on drums, unlike
previous EP Tune the tune !!, (Lolita´s Records 2017) which includes the song Shake like an earthquake that appears in Mediaset España serie “Caronte” released last March 2020 on Amazon Prime, and where all the instruments were recorded by Nacho himself, except the drums, by Patricia Cumplido (HF Pat).
During 2018 and 2019 the trio, with Alfonso and Fran, was active offering several gigs,
highlighting his time at Estudios Tarántula, which includes a song from this live show in this album.
A Stitch in Time is a summary of this period accompanied by these musicians in which Nacho guided the style of the band over American roots music. You can find among these songs the influence of the Blues, Boogie, Rag, Country or Swing with a personal perspective inspired by current artists.
Natural Hound Dog, a boogie in homage to Hound Dog Taylor, opens this EP which is followed by a shuffle, one of Hot Nasho’s first compositions, Back to Mama. The third cut is a rag titled Your cat and
my dog, with a double meaning lyrics, which is why it could also be called Hokum style. Winding
Road is perhaps the most daring subject, letting it walk into a country-style in a modern production context. Closes the album with Daredevil Love as a swing influence, live from Tarantula Studios,
This work has been produced by Nacho himself for Lolita’s Records. Recorded live in studio in June 2019 and mixed between November and December 2020 at Hot Room Studios (Marbella),
except for Daredevil Love, which was recorded live at Tarantula Studios’ “Conciertos en Linea”
on May 18, 2019, mixed by Jose A. Alarcón and Victor Sánchez.
Given the difficulty of presenting live works as well as offering concerts in the current days, this album will be published only for digital download and streaming.
