Finished, almost.

Thursday night we spent over six uninterrupted hours in the studio adding some final touches to the record and then mixed the final cut. I recorded a baseline to Goodbye Old Friend, keyboards were added, we discussed the hidden “track” and of course wondered what to do with the over-the-top and comical rock version of Haunted House. Daniela’s suggestion of dressing up in leather jackets and driving around on motorcycles for a cheesy music video continues to make me laugh every time I think about it.

The songs sound very different from the demos and really show the advantage of collaborating with the right people.

All that’s left to do now is get the record mastered and then send it to a CD printing company. Then we’ll have a CD release party and hope that people like the record enough to buy one. By the time we’re totally finished with all this it will have taken a year from starting the band to producing a record, give or take a month. If you’ve been reading this blog you’ll see that it has been a series of highs (mostly) and lows (a few) and a lot of hard work (that we loved). That is what I set out to achieve, I wanted to document as honestly as I could the process in creating music. Writing about the E.P. has been a project in itself and I’m glad I found the discipline to continue with it.

So, everything we’ve worked on for almost a year can soon be yours for just $5. I don’t know about you but that sounds like a bargain to me.
