Girlfiends & She-Devils

Worked on the Girlfiends & She-Devils compilation cover art. I'm pretty happy with this basic but strong design. We are supposed to master the audio for it at the end of next month. Hopefully all the bands tracks will be sent in on time.

Betty X

Betty X came by my studio today to work on some of her new tracks. We recorded her vocals for "She-Devil" & "Tiki" both for upcoming Go-Kustom compilations. Later I worked on my own tunes "Black Out" & "Can't Connect" for either Kill Switch...Klick or d.A. Sebasstian releases, I haven't decided which songs will go on which albums. Sometimes I just write songs with a rough idea of which project they are intended for and then they will end up on something entirely different. The self titled d.A. Sebasstian CD I put out last year had some tracks I had initially intended for Kill Switch...Klick records. The Kill Switch...Klick - Almost Ambient CD that came out this year on Invisible had a track from a d.A. Sebasstian album One Minute Endless. Gets kinda confusing sometimes.

Go-Kustom TV - Roq La Rue

Go-Kustom TV headed over to the Roq La Rue in Seattle last night to check out the "Draw" opening. The theme of the show was drawings and featured exemplary work by Mark Ryden, Charles Burns, Jim Woodring, Glenn Barr, Rick Klu, Yumiko Kayukawa, Blair Wilson and many others. Lots o' people- lots o' fun. Look for the Roq La Rue piece in an upcoming episode of Go-Kustom TV.

Go-Kustom TV - Eerie Macabre

Go-Kustom TV went to the Sit & Spin in Seattle to check out the Super 8 Lounge show. It's a night of independent Super-8 film makers, sponsored by Emerald Reels. The highlight of the evening was the multi-media presentation of Eerie Macabre. Their sexy female vampire film with live music was excellent. After the show we did a quick interview with them. Look for the interview with Eerie Macabre in an upcoming episode of Go-Kustom TV.

Sidewinders Kiss II

Worked on Sidewinders Kiss (from the forthcoming Betty X album) this morning and afternoon. Added a groovy bass and heavy chugga chugga guitar line. Also dropped two VHS episodes of Go-Kustom TV (#3 & #4) off at Public Access Seattle. Klick for air dates. Tonight I'm mixing the Sciflyer rough tracks we did last month. Busy as a friggin' bee. Ohh yea- got another good review for the Kill Switch...Klick Almost Ambient CD.

Sidewinders Kiss

Worked all day on a new song I'm writing the music for called Sidewinders Kiss. Its for Betty X's new record. Her words and my music. So far it's got a dark twangy ambience and Mike Ditmore's drums (see below) definitely beef up the bottom end. I really like this tune - just hope I don't burn out on it before it's finished. That happens sometimes, you work on a song so much, that by the time the song is released, you can't stand it anymore. I don't see how the Rolling Stones did it, playing Paint It Black for almost 30 years.

Post May Day

Relaxed. I needed a night off. Man I love our living room. Big picture window with bad weather outside and a big fire in the that's cozy.
