I don’t like writing long-winded blog posts, but the fact that this was one of the coolest experiences we have had in any of our bands impels me to elaborate. Hopefully other, bigger bands will take note and track them down for a session. Are you listening Bono, Chris Martin and Right Said Fred? You can’t even get 4-star treatment like this on your private jets.
Mutts recording journal, day 2:
The second session at Dan Smart’s place, and we got two new songs down. Once again we tracked keys, bass and drums live, then added some auxiliary bits of keys and percussion. This video has un-mastered rough mixes of both songs, whose working titles are “Throwback Jersey aka RICH” and “Dirty Ol’ Bastard aka DIRTY.”
Bob Buckstaff – Bass, electric guitbox, special effects
Chris Faller – Drums, tambo, car horgan
Mike Maimone – Keys, noises, auxiliary barks
Dan Smart – Mics, bells, whistles
Lucy – Lead barks, yaps, growls
2 days down, 3 songs tracked. Hope to have it all wrapped up this year and it seems on schedule (famous last words, I know). In the meantime, our first 3 EPs are still free here.
And we’ve got a new Mutts Mailing List sign-up contest where you can win free signed CDs, handmade unique Mutts merch, or an autographed copy of the new LP when it’s finished this Fall. Check it out here.
