Don’t Bury Us, We’re Not Even Yet.
We recorded two new songs in three hours on Tuesday night. All that’s left to be done is a backing vocal or two, and the mix.
We’ve come to realization that this type of old school 50’s and 60’s style of “get in and knock out two or three songs in three hours” sort of thing works for us. Schedules and money are tight, but given a short window and the desire to be productive we can (and do) get shit done. We jam econo.
I expect we will be doing some more songs (we have plenty) sooner, under this circumstance, instead of later. Once they are done, they’ll go right up on our bandcamp page for you to get a hold of. Content is king, why wait a year (or several) for a whole album?
Also, we are playing a rare live gig next month. Buddies Tavern (aka The Flying Horse of all places). With The Extras, Inc. and Lost Romance. We’re gonna be great. You should be, too.
Status Update Kent.
Just to let you know what we’ve been up to:
1) Jay (that’s me) played my first solo acoustic show. It was splendid. I plan on doing more.
2) The Break Evens are backing up Rich Conroy, functioning as the resurrected Grover Kent. They/we just played the first show back in three years. It was a good time, and went remarkably well. (I’ll post blogs with the set lists if you already haven’t read about them elsewhere).
3) We are in the process of recording new Grover Kent stuff. Drums, Bass, and rhythm guitars are down. Lead guitar and vocals to come.
4) TBE has new stuff. Once the GK stuff is done, I think we’re gonna start recording that stuff.
That’s the status as of 6-20-11. Other things are afoot, but too sonn to report on yet. Stay tuned.
July & Everything After…
July has been set aside for TBE to get back on the rehearsal horse, and finish up putting together the new record. We have more songs than you can shake Robert Pollard at (Who is Bob, you ask? Google him, and thank me later). It’s just now down to figuring out what the cream of the (upper) crust is. It’s a rather safe bet that “Merry Go Wrong” and “Don’t Hold Your Breath” are already in there. As for the rest, more to come later in the week, post-rehearsal.
