Well, my buddy Bubba (also the guitarist/wiggler of ThreeHives) has just put out a new project, The Fearless Coward. I just so happened to be the guy manning the board. He had set the session up in this very interesting converted gym. The acoustics of the building were nuts, a room that I’d love to use for drum tracking. The only real thing missing from the session was a nice set of room mics to capture the strange ambience. Looking around for what was available, we both had our iPhones on us. So we used one of them, about 30 feet back from the amps, as a room mic. To be honest, while Bubba was playing his ass off I was just drifting off into the sounds he was producing. It’s incredible to see one guy not only playing guitar, but controlling this giant modular rig with such precision. We then decided to come back to the Spacement to mix this 45 minute behemoth single take modular session. There are only a few overdubs on Fearless, most of which are interesting drones on the Moog Guitar and a Verbose Harmonic Oscillator.
GO GET THIS!
