Batching It is a one-man punk-rock cover band featuring Rob Ivey, a San Francisco East Bay musician. Hailing from Vallejo, CA, Rob was previously in Vallejo bands Bottomdawg and The V-Town Have-Nots , and also played drums in Diabolical Exploits with veteran punk-rock producer Andy Ernst, who has produced such notable bands as Green Day, Rancid, and AFI. The name 'Batching It' is short for 'bacheloring it', or 'going it alone', which perfectly describes the philosophy behind the project. After many years of not being in a band, Rob's nostalgia kicked in and he decided that it was time to make a cover album of influential bands/songs, songs and bands that inspired him to become a musician in his teenage years. The first Batching It project, due out in the Fall of 2009 on Leficit Records, is called 'Homage' - a self-explanatory title. Rob wanted to pay tribute to these bands and songs by reintroducing them to the new generation, and covered in Rob's personal favorite styles... Recorded at the legendary Art of Ears studio in Hayward, CA by Andy Ernst, and produced by Mike Lawson of Leficit Records, 'Homage' is a 15-track nod to, in Rob's opinion, 15 awesome bands: NOFX, Skankin' Pickle, Swingin' Utters, Pearl Jam, Rancid, Lagwagon, Metallica, Sublime, No Use For a Name, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, No Doubt, The Descendents, Less Than Jake, and Operation Ivy. Crossing rock genres, just like Rob's personal tastes, 'Homage' should have something for everyone.
