  • FREE DOWNLOADS THOUSANDS OF SONGS Cottonmouth original music Cottonmouth melted together in 1989 while attending Lewis and Clark College in Godfrey, Illinois. The original line up consisted of 5 members, Darren Gruen guitar, Ted Nitz bass, Eric Roberts guitar, Aaron Roberts drums and Johnny Bash vocals. Ted and Bash had a radio show called The Mosh on 89.9fm at the college. Cottonmouth released a 5 song demo cassette entitled "Official Demo" which obviously received tons of airplay at the local station. 200 copies disappeared along with the original bass player leaving 4 members to record the next release "Going to Pot" which was released in 1991. Cottonmouth was hooked on writing original material and strived to create a new unique sound. "Going to Pot" featured 11 songs on cassette but was mostly known for its outrageous cover, an original photo idea that Cottonmouth was able to pull off in an unknown cemetery north of Medora, IL. The band did obtain connections through college radio and was able to ship the cassettes to several radio stations around the globe where it received airplay. The band was honored when a professional German football(soccer) team used the song "Charge of the Light Brigade" as their introduction. Cottonmouth toured the Mid Western United States briefly in support of their new release until drummer Aaron Roberts decided to leave the group. In 1993 local recording artist Butch McMaster III became the new drummer and the new plan was to build a studio as opposed to renting time in one in order to perfect the art of recording and save costs long term. The first studio was analog and featured a Fostex R8 as the recording device. Family time had become very important to Cottonmouth and the group began to enjoy their time together without having to worry about recording deadlines and fat cat record producers squeezing the fun and life out of creating music by turning it into work. The everyday grind of working for the man and trying to raise a family is what inspired the group. In 1997 Cottonmouth produced a 4 song demo entitled "Pipe Dreams" printed up 500 copies one at a time and gave them away at that years OZfest. Cottonmouth received St. Louis radio airplay when their song "Space on Earth" was played on 105.7fm the Point's local show. The digital era was next for Cottonmouth as they invested in a stand alone digital unit designed by Mackie... the D8B. Work began on the new CD while waiting on the 24 track hard disk recorder Mackie was designing at the time to become available for purchase. Cottonmouth worked on their new writing style with improvisational experiments spun off original rhythm and counter rhythm ideas developed in the early years. Bass player and original guitarist Eric Roberts was abducted by the Greys, an alien life form, and was replaced place by long time fan Alex Honke(yes that's his real name). Cottonmouth continued to enjoy life not just as a band but as a family. On Oct. 14th 2001 Cottonmouth played their final show with drummer/brother Butch McMaster III as he would die tragically on Oct. 23rd in an auto accident in which he was the passenger. The band knew that Butch wouldn't want them to quit and because of their true love of music Cottonmouth played on. Several drummers auditioned and a few sat in for a show now and again until the band decided on the newest member of our family,Travis Puhse. The band features a huge selection of cover music to go along with their original material and has been known to put on shows lasting up to 10hrs. Cottonmmouth is a favorite among biker gatherings and hemp festivals. Cottonmouth is currently working with Mock records a division of CapontheHill records and VIACONY on their newest release featuring 13 songs and a pop up book cover. The Greys have been able to obtain some of the audio on this upcoming release and have began distributing bootleg copies that have mysteriously been showing up at shows.

The Cd which will contain 13 songs that span the entire career of the band going back to 1989. A new version of Freedom Reeks will be included featuring new drummer Travis Puhse. Travis will also participate on version number 4 of Charge of the Light Brigade. Charge was featured on the bands first demo in 1989, "Official Demo," released again as a 4 piece version on "Going to Pot", and as a "Live" version on the "Stash Vol 1" CD. Travis is also writing his first song with the band which will be the 13th track entitled Mockingbird Lane. The song is being based on a 13/8 time signature and will feature 13th chords with lyrics about the history of the number 13. Butch McMaster III will also be featured on the latest from Cottonmouth. The CD is a completion of songs the band was recording with Butch before he passed away in 2001. A few of the songs were on the "Pipe Dream" demo in 1997. They include Space on Earth, Blown Glass, Home Grown Remedy and Independencies. The track Numbered Daze was also on the demo and it has been reworked lyrically and had part of the vocal melody completely changed. Songs that didn't make the "Pipe Dream" demo that will also be included on Cottonmouth's latest are Falling from Earth and the first song ever written with Butch, Intense Brainjam. Butch is also featured on a few songs from the 1993 "Going to pot" demo which featured the original drummer Aaron Roberts. The songs Potpourri, Pissed Off, and Mudslung will be included with Butch McMaster III on drums. The band is also planning some interesting packaging for the new release. Understanding that downloading songs is how most people get their music, Cottonmouth realized that part of the art of music was disappearing. Cottonmouth grew up with vinyl recordings that included elaborate packaging and had watched during the process of recording this release the birth and practical death of Cd's , cassettes, and vinyl which is really only still around for the hard core collectors and DJ's who like to spin them. So... Cottonmouth is planning for their new CD packaging to also be a pop up book featuring original artwork in pop up form from our newest brother Travis Puhse.
