We just finished our first record. Thymme Jones of Cheer-Accident manned the board*. We recorded it in a basement in Humboldt Park, and hot damn, some of it is just stellar if I do say so myself. Thanks Thymme! Website here, tracks below.
Boo Hoo – In what will probably be the title track of the record, the Greenlees/Jones duopoly tends impeccably to business while I put a guitar slide on the wrong hand and commence to some improbable hijinks. Lyrical quasi-inspiration: the crybaby visible at the 7:00 mark of this clip of Alexandra Pelosi’s documentary Right America Feeling Wronged.
Five Minutes – I’m not expecting Dorothy Parker, but you don’t spell “you” with the letter u.

A debut gig at Quencher’s is up for this Thursday, kind of early. Shows will be rare. Sorry if that sounded like a threat.
*board in this case meaning the Roland VS-2400 integrated DAW. I gotta say, I’ve heard worse channel preamps.
