RPM

Recorded bits for the Spingere RPM Challenge track; uploading now. Although my recording program is acting a bit wonky all of a sudden. If I lose these tracks I’ll have to re-cut in a proper studio next week. C’est la vie.


Files delivered; WC tweets: "Thanks to the wonders of the internet, a guitar part for my RPM challenge has just arrived from Texas"!


I have to say that since I recorded this contribution I cannot stop playing this song over and over and over!


Also, ran through the Johnny Love setlist this morning; love playing these tunes! May run through them again tonight! Missing WW and SP...

Worked on "Specific Gravity" with Will and Scott last night... apparently its in 7/4 and 5/8 (or sub-divided 6/8, 6/8 2/4). Who knew?

Possibilities of Hippy Posse-ness

Rock-out session last night; good vibes, sharing my feelings of (at times)inadequacy and comforted and validated by my friends and their support and kindness. It was a rough week for all of us I guess. Sometimes you get your feelings hurt, sometimes you just gotta vent and sometimes you just have to push through, especially those pesky intervals when things seemingly fall-apart. The advantage of age, we can learn from our mistakes and inadequacies. Hearing a clearer vision of what our music could be with a new fragment Will summoned-up; that little fragment, along with Specific Gravity and the entropics material has a quirky cohesiveness that is one direction vs. the Johnny Love Hippy direction we started out in. Essentially there are two bands emerging here. Lo-fi lounge and prickly art music. Both good. Both different. It all works together somehow. I've sent Will and Scott the Daniel Schell & Karo tune that seems closest to the prickly art music idea I like.
