Yesterday, Tom Bastian (decapolis) and I had lunch with our friends in Brandtson. Tom and I work at the same place, though Brandtson just happen to be on tour in the area. It’s always good to shoot the breeze with them. Their one-sided LP will hit more likely in 2003.
Tonight, my friend Colin and I trek to Carlisle, PA and relive a bit of bizarre rock history as we record and produce our friends in Dr. Egg. This fine lo-fi pop outfit became something of our cult favorites circa 1994/5 when cassettes still ruled supreme as the demo form.
There should be a btv e-mail update sent out later in the day to explain our current rock status, but if you’ve been paying close attention to these entries, you’re pretty much up to date. Except that you probably don’t know that all american radio is back in action. After a hiatus due to a missing drummer, the band is back and ready to rock it hard. The new record will finally be released in the fall or so and there will be much touring.
