Big Al Staggs
In 1995 Scott Carlisle and Big Al Staggs worked together and wrote ALL FIRED UP LP. Adding Rob Katherman (M-80's) on bass plus David Almeleh and Billy Shearin (Waxing Poetics) playing drums on the LP. The Second LP produced again by Stacy Heydon but at Daily Planet Studios Virginia Beach Virginia. The band had little success with 2nd release but got together once or twice a year to perform at the Norva in Norfolk Virginia.
In 2015 Scott Carlisle and Big Al Staggs team up together and reunite with Producer Stacy Heydon to record the 3rd LP OXYMORON and first in 20 years. Oxymoron this time brings Scott Carlisle's incredible music writing and creation plus adding his talent on the bass, rhythm guitars. Studio friends came in adding some keyboard work along with some special guests guitar work of Stacy Heydon.
Stacy, Guitarist (1976-1979) for David Bowie and also Iggy Pop) and Scott Carlisle trade off some great leads together on a few songs. Big Al Staggs writes the lyrics on the new LP (Scott wrote Highway 666 lyrics) and that was recorded front and backing vocals at Animal Farm Studios L A California. Scott Carlisle's guitar work recorded in New Bern North Carolina. The LP features a song written by Paul Johnson (Waxing Poetics) and Big Al recorded in OBX NC entitled Never Coming Back. Stacy Heydon Producing, mixing and mastering the Oxymoron LP. Surfing Junkies video shot on West Coast And East Coast and has some smoking keys in it. Cat Phishing really happened. 29 years of history. Currently the band is hoping that someone takes notice of the new release if not Scott Carlisle and Big Al Staggs have an on and off hate for each other and the future of the band is uncertain. The two would like to tour and promote the new release but in today's social media marketing it will have to take the right person reading this. Thanks to all that have stopped by to read and maybe share our story. Big Al's dream is to hear the songs on Underground Garage with Little Stephen making it on the Coolest Songs in the World and show the world the evolution of the song writing. All three LP's continue to gain airplay here again in 2016 Wish the boys luck!
