Hot Rod Stigmata [Sterling Gold Edition] (5:52)

You’ve found your home among the stars
You’ve found your home among the stars

Now that you’ve ceased the careless use
Of your powerful sunrise tools
On rando dudes at the bars
You’ve found your home among the stars

That’s what they say in the city

Hot Rod Stigmata
Let no man trouble thee
Hot Rod Stigmata
Let no man trouble me

Song Notes

Toju Gbemi recorded her multi-layered vocals remotely from her home studio in Nigeria. Mike Koelling recorded his electric bass remotely from his home studio in Chicago. The rock drum kit and fills on HRS were sampled with permission from a Facebook video of Dylan Ryan laying down the beat for a Judas Priest cover. The time-lapse video above features graphic designer Sterling Martin creating the cover art for "Hot Rod Stigmata". This 'Sterling Gold' remix was created as a soundtrack for this 'making-of' video. The dialogue at the end of the remix is the voice of August Forte. It was captured with a Zoom H1n digital recorder during a conversation on the back patio of Nighthawk Chicago on December 21st, 2020.
