Ambient Collection

Mikes drum session went well. He got it in 6 takes. Not bad for a guy who hasn't picked up a drum stick in 3 years! I'll post photos in the next few days. I also finished the cover art for the Kill Switch...Klick- Ambient Collection 1994-2000 and WHO CARES: A Tribute To The Who CD's. A busy fuckin' weekend.

Beneath The Trees

Got an advance listen to the new Faith & Disease CD that I worked on. It sounds excellent. The full title is Faith & Disease- Beneath The Trees and it will be available through Projekt Records in a month or so. Mike Ditmore's coming over to do some drum work on my cover of 5:15 by The Who, for the WHO CARES compilation. Having Mike play drums is just like old times.

Working on the WHO CARE'S CD all day. Got the thing almost completely laid out. It looks pretty damn good. All the songs are in and I've already talked to Mel Dettmer about assembling and mastering it at Hanzsek Audio, August 18th & 19th.

I'm still unpacking the studio! But at least the house painting is almost done. I got some really kickass ideas for two new compilations I'll be putting out on iREGULAR later this year or early next year. Can't give the ideas away but look for updates
on the Upcoming Release Schedule page in the near future. I've also just picked up two new artists for the catalog- Blue Collar Love and Al Berard & Karen England. Check the iSTORE for ordering info.

5:15 Again

Reviewing my cover of THE WHO's song 5:15. I think I can knock this one out in a few weeks. Mike Ditmore (old Kill Switch..Klick drummer) is gonna play drums on it and is trying to land us a horn section. This song has a great horn line. Mike works at Boeing
and they have this horn ensemble called the Boeing Horns or some such thang. He's tried to land a few of them for the track, but they keep flaking out. Looks like I might just play it all on my Trombone doubling up the parts. Should sound good. My basic track is post-punk heavy with not alot of semblance to the original.

Painting...painting the house. It's my house to paint, feels good painting my house instead of someone elses.

Independence Day

Independence Day. Working on the website and getting the studio unpacked. Kind of a mellow day though it's pretty damn cold for summer here in Seattle.

Sent the remix DAT's off to Cleopatra Records last week. I sent the raw data for Kontorted/Kontortion from deGenerate and Follow Me from Beat It To Fit, Paint It To Match. Those songs seem to represent a good cross section of Kill Switch...Klick material. Follow Me being one of the first Kill Switch...Klick songs and Kontorted being one of the last. This move has been completely hellish. My new studio should be up by tomorrow or the next day. I'll post pics when it's set-up. Gotta see my lawyer this week upcoming about the Celebrate The Misery (read below) thang. I've been too damn busy to get everything done. Thank God I'm on vacation next week.
