Into The Great Wide Open
My friends are the best.
They’re the kinda guys who’ll willingly sacrifice the first 60° Saturday afternoon of the young year to lay down a few rockin’ tracks. And afterwards, they’ll gladly down a few pints and hot wings at the local dive bar.
Tony drove thirty miles. Chris was recovering from a recently broken nose, all black, blue and groggy. Tony put down bass lines on all five songs. Chris tracked rhythm parts, and a few blistering solos. Both rocked.
It’s pretty exciting to hear these songs come together. They were just a jumble of ideas when I wrote ’em in the desert a few weeks ago. Now they’re songs.
I’ll mix them down in the next few days, then hand off to Mark over at The Engine Room. The five song EP — with a great cover of Wilco’s “California Stars” — will be done for our March 31 show at Pianos. I can’t wait to hear ’em live. It’ll be the sound of friendship, only amplified.
