My new album “Woodgrain” is finished! Well, almost. I sent it to KatP Studio to be mastered only to find out that some of the tracks are mixed too hot and are a bit distorted. So I gotta go pull down some faders. But that shouldn’t take too long. I’ve got my friend George Middlebrooks working on art/graphics so you know it’s gonna look great. If you have design work you need done, check his stuff out at www.asideproject.com.
In other news, I am a guest musician on a new album by Lousy Robot, a great pop band out of Albuquerque NM. I’ve known singer Jim Phillips since my days in Memphis with the Martini Age. We played a lot of gigs with Jim’s band Judge Crater back in the day. After catching back up with each other about a year ago and exchanging music, he asked if I would play some drums and guitar on some songs of his. We did it all via email and the result is “Man On a Weird Horse Pt 1” and “Sugarsweet Me” on Lousy Robot’s new album “Hail The Conquering Fool” due to be released on January 21st. You can stream it here http://lousyrobot.com/ I’m proud to be on this album, thanks Jim!
Lots of gigs coming up for my various bands. econopop, Stolen Sheep and Westside Daredevils will do a triple bill at the Preservation Pub on Feb 23rd. So I’ll be doing triple duty that night. Bring me strong coffee. Also there’s talk of a big band festival in late January that the Westside Daredevils will be playing. Keep an eye out for word of that. I’ll let you know.
