In Our Time Machine
In Our Time Machine features two rockin\' musicians, Steffen Presley on the legendary Hammond organ with pedal-bass, alto saxophone and keyboards along with Arnold Mollica on drums, percussion and soulful lead vocals. This album is a funky live recording with two guys sounding like a five piece band! Rippin\' Hammond organ and soaring saxophone melodies anchor a variety of catchy tunes in a forward looking original way. From the outset, the philosophy of this album was to feature new original songs performed live on the legendary Hammond B3 organ along with solid drumming. So how can just two guys make this big sound? Other than Steffen\'s alto saxophone parts (the third leg?), which could only be overdubbed, the objective was to record everything live. To that end, Steffen performed almost all of the bass parts with both feet on the Hammond\'s bass pedals, simultaneously adding complimentary sounds from additional modern keyboards (usually atop the Hammond). In addition to his creative fat-back drumming, Arnold (the Milwaukee Mule) provided his evocative, blues inflected lead vocals on some of the tunes. The result is a unique and organic combination of \'old-school\' earthiness coupled with a modern sound. Well known in rock circles, Steffen Presley is credited for Hammond organ on one of this summers biggest hits, \'Along Came a Spider\' by the legendary Alice Cooper.
