Red Huxley's Road to Rancho
Joshua Tree - SA rock 'n roll band Red Huxley has been recording their debut album in California with Eagles of Death Metal guitarist Dave Catching.

The band is living the dream at the famous Rancho de la Luna recording studio in Joshua Tree, which has seen the likes of Eagles of Death Metal and Queens of the Stone Age. Catching currently runs it and it also doubles as his home.

Red Huxley met Catching when they won backstage passes to meet Eagles of Death Metal when they were touring in SA last year. They gave him their demo and a few days later invited them to come and record at his studio. The group raised the money to get there through famous crowdfunding website Kickstarter and have been recording there since.

Motion City Films have been following their journey and released short doccie-videos through MK Online called Road to Rancho. So far five episodes have been released and you can check them out below. You can follow new episodes on MK's YouTube channel.
