We’re going all the way back to 1997, to Electric Plant Studios somewhere deep in Brooklyn for a live Kill By Inches session with Shane and Tommy on vocals. Joining the two were Kevin Oriol on bass, Steve Papa on drums and Alex Kolundzija on guitar, with Vin Cin producing the mix.
Stylin’ was a unique and popular KBI jam separated from the rest by its mellow vibe topped with Shane Ali’s awesome rhymes. Never released, this might be a the only recorded version of it.
As the story goes, about a year after this session the band’s lineup would be reduced to only 3 guys, with both Tommy and Shane moving on to other projects. What followed is the Down To Three EP, still available in stores and featured here already with another KBI exclusive.
Btw, for more recent Shane Ali works (including some KBI covers!), check out his page on MySpace. And while at it, be sure to check out Born Of Scars, the band that features KBI’s Steve and Pete (who replaced Alex on guitar many years ago).
Kill By Inches recorded at Electric Plant Studios on many occasions and I’m happy to report that I have a few other sessions as well. Check back soon for more.
