Worked up a song using an old DAT recording of Kill Switch...Klick's old female vocalist Rosie Huntress who now plays in a band called Flexie out of Boston. I was digging around and found her vocals on a DAT we recorded back in '94. The song is called The Washing Song (at least for now) because the tune reminds me of George Orwell's book 1984 when Winston hears the woman singing as she's doing her laundry.

It seems the first week back from a vacation is the longest of the year. Started laying out the Almost Ambient (working title) Kill Switch...Klick CD. I'm using Cubase to do the basic track sequencing and mixing. Courtney Hudak (who was on the Americana: A Tribute To Johnny Cash) is doing a guest vocal on a remake of Her Trembling Hands. This disc should be in the mail to Invisible Records sometime next month.

Just got back from a little vacation. My wife, the kids and I rented a mid-sized Nissan and drove down the West Coast on Highway 101 visiting various Lighthouses on the way. We ended up in Crescent City, California. Did a bit of video recording...got some great ambient sounds of the beaches we visited. Newport Beach, Oregon was my favorite stop over. Wouldn't mind living down there.
