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... :)
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.
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...
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! :)
The Psychotic Hillbilly Dobro showed up at the Pigeon Coop on Sunday to guest on 'Gift Horse'... ;)
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.
We'll be lingering in GuitarLand for a while, I'm sure...
Because you can never have enough guitar! ;)
All set to begin tracking the bass parts for the new album on Friday night. Listen for that low B...
Got drum tracks done in the studio yesterday for six of our new songs. Six more to go on Monday... :)
Quietly going about our business making our new record.
In the meantime, we've just posted a few new live Damn Pigeon videos on YouTube. Somewhat grainy, yet totally real live footage.
Thanks for your patience, all!
Sorry about the Radio Silence over the past few weeks, but I'm afraid it's going to go on for a while yet.
We're all super-busy - living life, writing, hammering out a new live set-list, getting to know a new Pigeon and doing extensive pre-pro for the new record all at the same time.
Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated!
