Almost A Wrap...

We're about 95% done on the mix-down now, it would seem.

We've listened to the tunes about a bazillion times, and we don't hate them yet - so that's a good sign, right?

I'm guessing we'll be sending them out to be mastered within a couple of weeks.

Still smiling.

Mixing Down

We've finished recording the Dirty Dozen for our new album (save for one drunken choir chorus) and are now in the middle of mix-down.

The forecast calls for smiles, laughter and puzzled looks - with a 70% probability of light ear fatigue...


Lead and backing vocals are pretty much finished now. We had the Pigeon Tabernacle Choir fired up in the studio last week.

It'll be mixdown time soon... :)

Vocal Land, Ho!

We stepped into Vocal Land last night after Mr. Proctor finished painting some more colour from his pallette onto the canvas.

Doug laid lead vocal tracks down for two of the new songs.

There was much rejoicing, and we didn't even have to eat Sir Robin's minstrels! ;)

Back at it on the weekend.

Saturday Night Sessions

Just back from a productive and entertaining session in Guitarland.

Mr. Proctor laid down some very cool solos on 'Only I' and 'Time', and they couldn't be more different from each other. Exhilirating, for sure.

Our producer has hinted that it's almost time to move on to Vocal Land...

Special Guests

Guitaring continues this week at the Pigeon Coop, using more familiar tools.

Some vintage axes dropped in for the sessions last week.

In addition to the Psychotic Hillbilly Dobro, The Triple G Trio made an appearance - Goldy, Guild and Gretsch. Their sounds are stunningly sweet.

The Boys were having Big Fun - rather like pigs in sh*t, but alas, all guests have to go home eventually...

Many thanks to Big Al for the loan! :)

Dispatch From GuitarLand

The Psychotic Hillbilly Dobro showed up at the Pigeon Coop on Sunday to guest on 'Gift Horse'... ;)

Off to GuitarLand!

Drum and bass tracks for the new record are in the can.

The guitar guys were having a grand old time on Sunday, tweaking fat sounds from an eight-foot wall of various amplifiers on the studio floor.

Big Fun.

We'll be lingering in GuitarLand for a while, I'm sure...

Because you can never have enough guitar! ;)

Now For That Low Yo-Yo Stuff...

All set to begin tracking the bass parts for the new album on Friday night. Listen for that low B...

Beds Made...

Got drum tracks done in the studio yesterday for six of our new songs. Six more to go on Monday... :)
