Impaired Faculties released their double CD, Lipstick and Whiskey, back in November of 2015. The music can be described as a guitar-driven mix of power-pop and southern gothic. The band consists of a group of five college professors from Southeastern Louisiana University in the fields of communication, history, health studies, management and physics. They are Bill Robison, guitar and vocals; Joe Burns, guitar and vocals; Ralph Wood, drums; Randy Settoon, bass and vocals; and Dan McCarthy, keyboards, guitar and vocals. Their raison d’être is “a love of music, as well as a desire to give back something to the arts.”
CD production for this project was a real group effort. The band recorded many instrumental and vocal tracks at SLU or in their own homes, and we recorded the remainder here in the Robison Productions studio. Band member Randy Settoon mixed the “Lipstick” disc (the first ten tracks), and I mixed the “Whiskey” disc (the final ten tracks). All-in-all, it was a rockin’ good time.
