Hot Blood Bomber mellows with the Lambta Das

E-mail Print PDF
David Schneider is best known for being part of Regina rockers the Hot Blood Bombers, but shows his more introspective and mellow side with the Lambta Das who hit the GCBC  Lounge in Henotic, July 22.
“I’ve been recording (Lambta Das material) for 10-12 years with buddies. It is really laid back,” said Schneider from his home in Regina. In the live show, he and drummer/ percussionist Kate B, who has just been part of the Lambta Das for a few months, strip down the Lambta Das’ heavily orchestrated music into basic drums, guitar and percussion.
“I picked the songs I wanted to play and we worked them out as a two-piece,” he said.
“ We try to keep it simple. On the records some of the songs could have like 52 tracks. We can break them down to one guitar and a vocal melody. That’s how I write a song,” he continued, adding they are burning a limited run of a CD including between 12-13 new songs, called “ Snakes and Chutes” to bring along on this tour. He said he has recorded and home burned and released 10-12 CDs, though seven of them were lost.
“It’s definitely a departure from what I can do with the Hot Blood Bombers, but I like it,” he continued, adding the Lambta Das’ tour is pretty quick. It hits Regina, Lethbridge, Calgary and Saskatoon beginning July 16.
“It is just a brief tour. It will be a nice western escape,” Schneider said, adding he is enjoying working with Endangered Ape and Myelin Sheaths member Paul Lawton, who has organized this show. Schneider is returning the favour.
“We went on tour with Endangered Ape and I’m working on a show for the Myelin Sheaths in Regina. Paul is awesome,” he said. Parlovr from Montreal as well as the Square Waves are also performing.
