The Mato Demo – 1993

This is as old-school as it gets. This is Shu before we really did anything at all. We recorded and mixed these 9 songs in a marathon 24-hour session at Sweetfish Studios in Argyle, NY with our dear friend Matt (“Mato”) D’Ambrosio behind the board.

We had only been a band for a few months at the time. This was the earliest line-up. Matty Carl and Bryan Mull had not yet joined.  That means no saxophone, and Chris Webster is on lead guitar.

There are a lot of forgotten gems here, as well as a couple of very early versions of some Shu standards. Our brother Marc Fuller plays drums on three songs (“First Time”, “Turn On”, and “Get Along”). Our usual drummer Eric D Hamell plays bass on those tracks. For those keeping score at home, that is the same Marc Fuller who (30 years later) just produced and engineered our new EP, available everywhere April 15, 2023.
