Oceano’s Unreleased Cover Of Jimi Hendrix’s “Machine Gun” Available
Oceano‘s previously unreleased cover of “Machine Gun” by Jimi Hendrix has been making the rounds online, complete with a less than flattering backstory. The song was originally recorded for the “Homefront: Songs For Resistance” compilation, though it wound up not being used.
The song was posted by Bota-Werks—an Illinois-based recording studio who shared the following insight behind the song:
“Enjoy a unreleased track by Oceano that covered Jimi Hendrix “Machine Gun” for the Homefront Soundtrack. Because Earache Records got up front money to be given to the band and studio but as all great record companies do they never paid out the band nor BOTA for recording and mixing this song we figure lets let the world hear it for FREE. Thanks Earache Records for spending our money!!”
