"ya know what we should do?"
"get more whiskey?"
"quiet you!...no...we should get together at my place and do the whole damned thing ourselves."
"uh...ok? next weekend is bad."
"ok. the weekend after. now where's that whiskey?"
two weeks later, we're in the living room rocking the fuck out. originally i wanted to do the entire thing in one long take, mistakes and complete fuck-ups be damned! but fortunately, blixco talked some sense into me and we decided on a three take rule. and if we didn't get it in three takes? fuck it. how could we not get it in three takes? it's just G and F, right?
so we hit record and got this:
there is no "editing" here. that's for people who don't understand art-with-a-capital-A. i changed the panning and some levels (a two mic setup is pretty simple) then chopped off the beginnings and ends of most of the tracks. the "witty banter" edition will be available shortly to all who enquire.
what now? take it and beat the shit out of it. we'd love to hear some female vocals dropped on some of those tracks. there are some gaps for weird noises. and hell, there's one track where we skipped the words entirely because it made us feel silly. think about that for a second. and just wait until you see the pictures...which i'll post later today...'round lunch, maybe?
take. listen. be merry. and let us know what you think.
