Zann


Got a copy of the Zann compilation put out by Silber Records. I have a track called Crawling on it. It sounds great with tracks by Clang Quartet, Remora, Small Life Form with Jarboe (formerly of The Swans).

Who'd Out

Mastered the WHO CARES: A Tribute To The Who on Friday & Saturday. Man, I'm Who'd out! Many of the 16 tracks captured the feeling of The Who, even though they weren't in the typical rock vein. I think even Pete Townsend would like it! There's everything on this disc, from gothic to electronic, from ambient to noise from alt. country to psychedelic dub. Now I've got to get it into
production. I'm hoping to have it out by October. I also started picking tracks for the Best Of Kill Switch...Klick that Cleopatra Record's is putting out later this year. I got confirmations that Tony James and Neil X of Sigue Sigue Sputnik are remixing Follow Me & Matt Green of Spahn Ranch is remixing Kontorted. It's hard to pick 16 tracks from 5 CD's. I've been looking at old DJ play lists, to try and get some perspective. There's certain songs that have to be on the CD...but which version? I'll figure it out. I also just started working on the next song for the d.A. Sebasstian CD called So Blue. It's jazzy with alot of groovy bass & vibraphone samples. James Whiton (bassist extraordinaire) played upright on it as well. I'll have to see how well this song sits between the Rockabilly sounds of Monster and the Trip-Hop attitude of Isabella. Rosie Huntress who used to sing in KsK and now plays in the band Flexie, said she'd do some guest vocals on some of The Flathead 5 tracks.

Freaks Amor

Almost finished my cover of The Who's 5:15. I just have to replace the lead vocal and mix. I talked with Ricardo Acevedo who I used to work with in a band called Freaks Amor back in 1983. He's gonna do some vocal work on The Flathand 5 CD I've been working on for the last year and a half. Very cool.

iREGULAR Website

I crashed the iREGULAR website last night. I guess I exceeded my 10 meg limit and when I tried to reload a meta tag infested index page it came up blank. So if you tried to view the site last night, I apologize. I just bumped the site up to 20 megs so I should be good for awhile. I finished mixing Day To Day (Feeding The Machine) for a compilation for Cohort Records. It sounded a bit Kill Switch...Klickish so I'm releasing it as such. I know I keep saying no-more new Kill Switch...Klick releases but...who knew?!?

Day To Day

I threw together a really cool piece called Day To Day for a compilation about "machines". A remixed version may also appear on the Kill Switch...Klick Ambient Collection CD. The whole thing only took two days to write and record. It's very...ummm...mechanical sounding. I know I should be finishing my Who track (5:15) but this one just fell outa me. I've gotta finish the Who track (vocals and mix)this weekend. Mastering and assembly is set for August 18th & 19th.

Suffragette City

NEWS FLASH! The David Bowie compilation I did a track for 1 1/2 years ago (DARK VISION BOWIE 2) is coming out on Cleopatra Records in a few months. I just got confirmation. I did the Bowie classic Suffragette City, one of my all time favorite songs. This is turning out to be a productive year.
