Cork - Speed of Thought (1999 Lightyear Records) FLAC 
----- -----

The rock duo Cork teamed onetime Spin Doctors guitarist Eric Schenkman and former Mountain drummer Corky Laing, who were first introduced in 1996 by legendary Jimi Hendrix Experience bassist Noel Redding. The trio toured in late 1997, and early the following year Schenkman and Laing began writing songs for a proposed LP; though Redding did not sign on with the new group, he did appear on several of the cuts which ultimately comprised Cork's 1999 debut LP Speed of Thought. ~ Jason Ankeny

They named the group Cork. Corky Laing recalls the experience:
"We started playing together and writing songs up at our friend's in Westport (Conn.). We went on the road - Eric, myself and Noel - in New York and Connecticut around Christmas of '97, played in Toronto and Montreal and Woodstock. People showed up out of curiosity. I mean, think about the repertoire between the three of us. Eric was just dying to play all those songs with us and he could handle it. It's one thing to say you want to do it, but can you pull it off? He did, and he put his own little taste on top. I had tremendous confidence in him from a player point of view."
"It was a marriage made in rock heaven.
"Then the clubs started asking us back in the spring of '98," he said. "During that run, we played a blues club in New York. This guy, Arnie Hall from Lightyear, was there. He comes up and says, 'Hey, I love what I heard. You wanna make a record?' We shook hands and I called Eric, who was moving to San Francisco at the time, and he said, 'Sure, I'll come down for a couple of weeks.' It was that simple.
"When we recorded the album, it was very focused. We didn't play fast, we played immediate, so we agreed whatever we got, we better grab it. We had these tape machines going, we kept on referring and going back and forth. As a result, we built on the ideas we loved to play. We played pieces and riffs we both loved and we rode on it."
