Naked Walls Records


The fifth member of the Old 3C Label Group is Naked Walls Records of the Columbus, Ohio area, directed by Ed Shuttleworth, whose projects Red Skylark and Van Echo appear on the label. Ed’s been in several bands over the years, and one of those, Vena Cava, has a previous release issued by Old 3C Records.

| NW 01 | Red Skylark, self-titled CDR | 9 songs
Written, played, and recorded by Ed Shuttleworth at his Owl Nest Studio in Granville, Ohio, with assistance from Joe Nelson, David Chatterton, and Kirk Richard Smith. The discerning listener may hear some Cheap Trick, Guided By Voices, and other midwest touchstones — and there’s nothing wrong with that kind of tasty, audio-flavor combination. So, have at it, rock and rollers.

| NW 02 | Van Echo, Endless Winter, Episode 1 | 2 songs
Songwriter, guitar-slinger, and crooner Ed Shuttleworth is joined by a new line-up of pals from Cincinnati’s The Ready Stance — Wesley Pence (guitar, vox), Brian Kitzmiller (drums), and Randy Cheek (bass, vox) — and the fellas bring the melodic but muscular indie-rock, big time. New songs, new band name. Long live Van Echo.

|NW 03| Van Echo, Nobody Else | 1 song 
Van Echo makes its physical-product debut with this song from a limited-edition, split 7″ vinyl single – with Ed Shuttleworth’s “other” band Closet Mix on the flip side, which features longtime members of the Columbus indie scene.
Purchase via | iTunes | Amazon | Listen on YouTube

Review | Dagger Zine (Tim Hinely)

|NW 04| Red Skylark, Run On | 4 songs
Ed Shuttleworth keeps it going solo-style with this four-song EP of power-pop goodness. If you’re not yet familiar with Ed’s unique brand of melodic indie-rock, then now’s your chance to rectify that sad situation.
