in the studio

3/2/2008

we've tried a hundred different mics, click tracks, cutting and splicing, overdubbing and separation-- but none of that ever worked. sure, we ended up with a good sounding recording, but it was sterile and stifled.

we need something more visceral. we need to turn things up and play together. i like it when a punk album just sounds like a great live show. i like that rob walked from room to room to press record, forgetting his pick in the other room every time. i like the clicks and pops. the noise that ian's amp wouldn't stop emitting. brandon's guiding nods and muted yells. i like that gabe has to fight the urge to grab the mic when he is in the vocal booth. i like the coating of beer and nicotine on my fingers, giving me a good grip on the sticks.

we hammered out ten songs:

ricochet
holding on
rats in battallion
dreadnok: ripper
brand new song
nightmare
of implants and impotence
atp
a coming of age movie
jeckyl and hyde

both guitars, bass and drums recorded together live. we will dub in the vocals, organ, auxiliary percussion, etcetera as soon as possible.
