Spookey ruben - shackleton

A fan-compiled sampler of favourite tracks from Spookey Ruben's catalog of excellent albums, available for free download at bandcamp for a limited time.

Spookey's home recording experiments led to the making of his solo debut album Modes of Transportation Vol. 1 ( TVT Records ) which was partially engineered and mixed by Gadi Foltys, Don Kerr , Brad Nelson and Mark Plati [5] ( David Bowie ). International critical acclaim followed, hailing the album as the " Pet Sounds of the 90s" and " lo-fi pop masterpiece". In 1996, Ruben contributed to the AIDS benefit album Offbeat: A Red Hot Soundtrip produced by the Red Hot Organization . Disputes with TVT resulted in his leaving the label and years of apparent silence. [4] Eventually, Ruben simultaneously released two separate CDs entitled Bed and Breakfast (Hi-Hat/Zomba) that were later repackaged as a double album . Alone at the Zoo , co-produced by John McEntire of Tortoise / The Sea and Cake was released as a special limited album of demos in 2003. On June 16, 2009 his full-length album, Mechanical Royalty , was released in Canada on Hi-Hat/Sonic Unyon. He has since released a new EP, Shackleton and is playing live dates in North America and Europe.
