One of Those Days…

Sometimes I wonder why I am doing this.  I wonder why I spend, perhaps, thousands of hours a year writing, practicing, recording, and performing music that there is a distinct chance will not make a noticeable impression on anybody.  And then I talk to Bavery, and it all becomes clear.  I do it, because I love to do it.  In fact, I love it so much that I spend my free time and much of my disposable income doing it.  Recording gives me a bigger sense of satisfaction than anything else on the planet.

But I still have those days.  And on those days, it is nice to get an mp3 from Bavery in my email in-box.  And on those days, it is nice to get one of my mixes back from Noah.  Noah is awesome.

This week, I was feeling down, and then I got an mp3 from Baves and also two mixes from Noah – yahoooooOOoo!!!  I won’t post the Bavery mp3 (even though it is completely awesome) on account of it being none of my business posting someone else’s mp3 without his permission.  BUT I will post the new mixes from Noah!  Check out Run. Run! Run!!! RUNNN!!!! RUNNNNN!!!!! and Let’s get funky!

Let me know if you have any ideas for improvement!

Going Nuts with My Marshall Stack

Toby in front of the Marshall JCM 900 Stack

In an effort to beef up the new album (and have some fun), I decided to dust off my old Marshall JCM 900 half-stack and rip out some guitar licks for the new album.  Here are my initial results:

“Run. Run! Run!!! RUN!!! RUNNNN!!!!” – Scratch Mix April 8, 2009

“Let’s Get Funky!” – Scratch Mix April 8, 2009

“Duluth” – Scratch Mix April 8, 2009

Oh! And if you listened, you noticed I went off the handle on the vocal parts to “Let’s Get Funky!”
