Recording with the New Guy
October 25th, 2013

So after our last Grant and Green gig (lotsa Gs!) one of my Bad Decisions decided it was time for him to move on. This came as somewhat of a shock to me, as I thought he was having a good time, but far be it from me to hold someone back from having a good time. So, so long and be happy!

Naturally I was a little bummed out about this as I was pretty happy with the way things were sounding. I checked w. Bad Decision #1 (Steve) who said he was still having a good time and was up for keeping on. So we forged forth, looking for a new skins player.

I was concerned we might never find someone (the last time Steve and I looked for a drummer it took us 7 or 8 months), but happily enough a couple buddies emerged showing an interest in holding down the rhythm for us. I kept cruising personals anyway, and the first person to write me back seemed like there was a lot of potential.

Longish story short, that was a few months ago and I’m happy to announce that Ace Crow has joined the ranks of my Bad Decisions. We were real happy with Ace as a drummer and a chill guy, and looked forward to getting some tracks done with him.

So after a mere 5 practices, we went back to ole Faithful – mics hanging from the walls of our practice space, plugged into my trusty M-Audio Fast Track Pro, leading into my laptop. We knocked out 9 tunes in a couple hours, I set to mix them in REAPER (probably the best $60 bucks I ever spent), and voila! – here are the 4 recordings I thought turned out the best:

If you for some reason need hi quality wav files of these tunes and have $5 you can give me via paypal, please mosey on over to our bandcamp page, pony up the cash, and download in whatever format you’d like.

Or you can, you know, stream em from free here. I guess if yer real savvy you can probably figure out how to download the mp3s too, but the wav files are gonna cost you!

Now it’s time to book some gigs and bring this shit to who it’s intended for – the MASSES! (I don’t mean my friend Santos – not that kind of mass).

For gig inquiries, please hit me up at gigs@severebass.com and you best believe you’ll hear back from me quick!
