Problems... -ish

The studio is still "out of order", which means that for a second week in a row no recording will transpire for the LCD project. Hopefully the parts to mend the ailing computer will arrive early next week. Work regarding the album has not ceased, though, as there are other aspects of the project that does not require recording to develop.

So there!

Session work

HIO's recording at Michael Briggs' casa (aka the Violitionist Sessions) back in April is now available for your viewing and listening pleasure/displeasure/indifference/Elvis Presley, which you can experience here:

We also received some press coverage regarding the session in via Preston Jones, which you can read here.

Two and awaiting the third

To summarize the main events of the day: Lost my phone and the studio's computer died (luckily, though, I did eventually manage to get it running long enough to back up all of my audio files). Joy of joys...

Glacial proportions

The ever-prolific Phil Ford releases a new album, Moraine, from his latest project, glxcxxrs. As per usual in regards to Mr. Ford, it's simply fantastic. A biased opinion? Maybe, but check it out for yourself and come to your own conclusion. The good man has also made it available as a free download. Huzzah!

Spent the day at home due to the creeping crud I've been fighting for the last several days. Besides sleeping and getting online for a bit (like now, obviously), the other activity that's been encompassing this Wednesday is listening to Iron Maiden's first two albums:

Iron Maiden (1980)

Iron Maiden (1980); Performance at the Rainbow Theatre in London, 21 December 1980

Iron Maiden (1980); Performance at the Marquee in London, 19 October 1979

Killers (1981); Performance at the Rainbow Theatre in London, 21 December 1980

Killers (1981); Performance at the Rainbow Theatre in London, 21 December 1980

1. Spent the weekend recording four chords. Pathetic. Shooting for a November release of LCD.

2. Somewhat under the weather since Sunday.

3. Had a two foot long tan and brown rat snake keep me company while readjusting the sprinkler in the backyard tonight.

4. Currently craving an Orange Julius.

Пaддинг испытания

The most views I had on a post (currently at 270 hits) was one which had a title written in Cyrillic. Let's see if the results can be repeated utilizing the same method. Well... actually a wee bit different, as I had typed the rest of this post in Russian (it's that kind of night. Sigh... ):

Если вы синего и вы не знаете,
Куда идти к почему ты не идти,
Где заседает моды,
Путин в Ритз


Good choice, me thinks. PJ Harvey won the Mercury Prize for Let England Shake, an album which embodies the definition of perfection for me. Congratulations!... as if she reads this blog.

Clearcutting The Human Forest

Mr. Horn has released a new album under the The Owl and the Octopus moniker with a few blips and squeaks contributed by me (under the JATSDFM moniker). Check it out and download it if you like. It's free, by golly!

Two As and a B

If I had the dosh and/or wasn't such a cheap bastard, the latest JATSDFM single would have been released as a 7" with two A-sides and a B-side. Go and download it for free if you like.

Here's a bit of (albeit) boring trivia: Only one song from this single will be released on the upcoming "iAlbum", LCD. Can you guess which one it will be? Do you even really care, especially with the foreknowledge that no prize is being offered for the correct, or incorrect, answer?
