Just an update about shows, recording, videos, etc..
I welcome John Amymong as
our newest addition to Alien Knife Fight. Like Mike, Brad, and myself, John is also
a bassist. John found my music about ten years ago and has been an avid listener.
He reached out to me about 5 years ago and sent me some of his music, which I really
enjoyed and connected with.The universe operates in strange ways: about a year and
a half ago John contacted me again to inform me that he now lives in Austin. To
make a long story short, we auditioned him for the position of utility musician,
doing backing vocals, playing keyboards, percussion, bass, and bari guitar, and
he was a perfect fit.
We are on the home stretch of mixing the Alien Knife Fight debut.
It's been taking a while because we'd get the songs to a certain point, and then
meet someone new or come up with a new idea to include in a tune and go back to
add it. We think we've got everything we need now, but who knows for sure?
hoping to have the completed cd in hand and available by the time we get to Boston
So yes, Alien Knife Fight will be in Boston on 6/22. Then a couple weeks after
that I'll be returning to Boston to reunite with Dana Colley and Larry Dersch to
do a couple A.K.A.C.O.D. warm up shows before we head to europe. It is confirmed:
A.K.A.C.O.D. will be playing the Pohoda Festival along with Nick cave & The
Bad Seeds, Smashing Pumpkins, Amon Tobin, Peaches, and Thom Yorke among other greats.
Here is the full festival line-up: http://www.pohodafestival.sk/index.php/en/artists/index/
