This original Limited edition CD version is now SOLD OUT.
This is the Debut release from guitarist Johny Skullknuckles and his new project The Kopek Millionaires". All the assembled songs were written around 2006/7 (Apart from the cover version).
So here I was with a bunch of catchy tunes pecking at my head, demanding release from the limited confines of my brain. Not suiting any of the bands I worked with I decided to do a total D.I.Y release, and so The Kopek Millionaires were born and "Heartaches & Hardons" is the first jubilant, punktastic set of recordings from the newly wiped down Trolly Dolly Studios and indeed the first item to escape on my very own label JSK Records.
Recorded sporadically during 2012 in the damp crumbling confines of Trolly Dolly studios and joyously smashing these square pag songs into this lovely round hole of an album.
For the guitar Geeks out there;
My main guitar on these sesions was a 2006 Black Gibson Les Paul Standard
Next most used guitar was a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Junior (In TV yellow of course) with a P90. Double Cutaway single pick up
Also an early 1981 Arbiter Les Paul Junior copy with a 1970s Gibson P90 Pick up (In TV yellow of course) Double cutaway, single pick up
And a lovely 1995 White Fender Nashville Telecaster
Amplification was from
A Laney 100 watt all valve head through a vintage Marshall 4x12
A Peavy Windsor 100 Watt all Valve head through a matching peavy 4x12
A Tech 21 Trademark 60 combo
No stomp boxes this time, just used outboard.
A mid 90s Squire P bass took care of the bottom end.
There were also some drums and some big old keyboards and microphones but lets face it, its only the guitars that count.
