Studio Night

Playing the house

I knew that there would be some repercussions. When KB and I got together to work on concluding the tracking for “Get Up“, we did lots of shout-y background vocals, some other-worldly guitar noises, and liberal amounts of Kaossilator. We were left with just one thing to record: a stomp-clap[…]

Our fourth “baby” actually arrives

Despite the fact that we released our fourth record “Get Up” on 6/9, we didn’t actually have CDs at the time. As mentioned previously here, even though it is considered by many to be an archaic medium, we still like to get a small batch of CDs manufactured for each[…]

Happy Birthday

As always, on this day, I raise a toast to my grandfather.  He would have been 92 today. He was one tough guy (WWII bomber pilot, shot down and survived), but he had enough of a soft spot to help me get started with some of my first usable music[…]

Our new album “Get Up” is online now (happy 6/9)!

We’re excited to debut our fourth album “Get Up” on our favorite day of the year. It’s available for download now, and we will have CDs available shortly. We’ve put together 10 new songs, including a kooky cover of the Tubes song “Gonna Get It Next Time”. We’re still adhering[…]

Weapons backer

We’re happy to be supporting Weapons of Mass Creation: a premier music festival and design conference right here in the CLE. It represents all of the things we really enjoy: new music, cool design, supporting local artists of all types, and yes, there will  probably be beer. We applaud the[…]

Los Mass

On our last studio night, KB and I spent the evening (and I mean the entire evening) getting two good guitar tracks for an upcoming song (currently called “What’s Mine Is Mine”). We wanted to get a good dose of feedback, and a nice crunchy tube sound for the tracks.[…]

Funking Funkbox

I’ve been watching eBay for years, looking for a Gibson Maestro MRK-2 drum machine that’s in good shape and is affordable. I totally got to digging it while listening to Sly and the Family Stone and Graham Central Station. In some of their recordings you can hear the MRK-2 cranking through an[…]
