"The idea was a simple one," says Chrome Peeler's founder Jason Ziemniak. "Contact the musicians in my record collection and ask them if they'd write a song if I gave them a song title." As a result, Mike Watt, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Thalia Ferriera team up for "Like a Ghost on Fire," Mudhoney's Mark Arm delivers "Coke Limo" and Concrete Blonde's Johnette Napolitano contributes "Memory of A Liar."
Additional contributions from Clutch's Neil Fallon, the Figgs' Mike Gent, Isis' Aaron Turner and Rocket From The Crypt-offshoot Beehive and the Barracudas round out the compilation. A second installment in the series, appropriately titled "You've Got Your Orders Vol. 2," is in the planning stages.
