today's turgid episode.

Recording session this past Sunday with the beguilingly machoesque Super Hardon at Jottem in Wormerveer. Here's a tiny excerpt of the rough stereo mix, just a little Ferox analog overload added for that "we're really loud" feeling and some OmniSone side gain to bring the guitars up.

Blue Booby. (4.3MB, 2:15).

John Dikeman: tenor saxophone

de kortste nacht.

From relaxed 8pm soundcheck through scarily underattended 10:40pm opening notes (due to scarily lightning-attended storms maybe?) to engaging 1am Xenakis to desperately necessary 5:30am croissants and multi-amplifier guitar solos. To....yes, 12noon hangover. It was a pretty fun night. Also a bit, mmm, "special" due to the fact that this room is where we had our first gig together back in 2008, almost four years ago, and every time we play here seems to be generally pretty satisfying.

And in the aftermath? Spirits remain pretty OK, and Coming Up Next: the wagon. And two recording sessions. I'll take pictures.
