Pinebender’s Working Nine To Wolf is its second release on Lovitt Records. It is the first recording made with the band’s new line-up. After the departure of Matt Clark in 2002, Stephen Howard moved from behind the drums to take over on baritone guitar and Dennis Stacer joined the group, replacing Howard in the rhythm section. Chris Hansen represents the only original member of the band in his original role as guitarist and vocalist.
The album was recorded in Chicago by Greg Norman over two days in March 2006 at Electrical Audio and three days in April 2006 at Studio Greg Studio. The band has never sounded as powerful as they do on this, their heaviest, most straight-forward recording to date. Amplifier worship is on display. Guitars loom throughout eight tracks from semi-psychedelic to furious. Stacer controls this march. His playing is true to the “drudge” of the previous records while exciting the system with improvisation
