Roddy Piper WWE legend and star of the cult John Carpenter film “They Live”. Swamp Music Players put up for auction his movie costume worn in his last film “Portal To Hell”. Our manager Crushwb was gifted the item by the production company for helping to promote the film on social media. We’ve kept some memorabilia sent to us but can no longer store the costume so now have it up for auction in California.We are raising funds for our next EP “Urban Crime”.
Exciting fun for Swamp Music Players as we have this October some of our American friends fly in to record an Americana track with us! Joseph Gearheart is an underground folk poet from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and Sugar Parks is a singer from Hollywood California.
We co-wrote a track with Mr Gearheart and was so pleased with it we invited him to Victoria BC to record with us in a real studio! Titled “Crowd Pleaser” ☢⛽it’s both lyrically and musically rich. Drawing upon that feeling of listening to late 1970s Americana and dug into upon cultural themes that have proved cyclical (oddly retro) but relevant today. Most of all we really wanted to make a song our fans would really enjoy and had them in mind. It’s exciting that we have made so many friendships with artists that we can invite them to work on such a project.

We did it, over 50,000 hits for our track “Warrior”, transistorized Cosmic American music , inspired by a well documented UFO abduction in 1975. Warrior is our most polished track recorded and mixed by award winning producer Wynn Gogol. We were able to motivate our growing base of fans and pals to share the track enough to reach our goal and we are still generating some hits from this campaign! Thanks to everyone for raising our profile and getting the music out there to your friends.
