We’re at this very moment working on the sweetest love song ever written. I know this because it’s true. You’ll see.
We’ve been very productive these few days, and had some fun too. Some basic tracks are forming… of them: Some Girls, Om Nom, A Little Messed Up, Crazy From You, Pour Tous Jours… It’s so good. I’m so excited.
In other news (see… we don’t really have any. We’ve been in this dark, spiritual, cool, window-less, clock-less space for days in a row) have you seen Basement Horse? And Luis and I have been more active on Twitter. I read about Daschel and the new kidney removal technique which prompted me to make sure my Organ Donorinfo was up to date.
Yep. This is life in the studio. Time to get some doggie smooches, drink a beer, then some coffee, and rock a duet. Seriously. Don’t you wish you were here!
I will update soon, with pictures even,
Yes, yes of course it will!
Tomorrow we head in to “officially” start album 3 with Chris Testa (worked on Eat My Heart Out and Because I’m Awesome too). We have been creating this record diligently since we got home from tour in August… demo’s, re-writing, transposing galore! I think we’re ready. We’ve never been this prepared before heading into the studio.
Even our guitars are more prepared this time! We dropped them off with Greg Leon, guitarist and guitar technician extraordinaire yesterday. Then after a little lecture (these are among the worst I’ve ever seen… you really need to take care of these etc) this afternoon we were all on our way!
Lots of cool stuff happened and happening… lets try to remember… other than our music… Obama is our president, The Breeders @ The Wiltern, Cheap Trick @ House of Blues, The Dickies & Blockage @
Punk Rock Social, The Bodies @ Punk Rock Bowling (where our team, The Punk Rock Socialists placed 23rd in the “B” League! Trust me that’s grrrrreeeat!), The Melismatics @ The Viper Room and The Muffs @ Spaceland with US and Calamity Magnet! Went to Florida for Christmas and New Years, took Quito to some dog parks, sorta caught up on my email and myspace, watched some car chases, bleached the crap out of my hair, cleaned my closet, stuff I can’t remember right now… you know.
So I’ll leave you for tonight with toughts of new songs and The Dollyrots in your town (or as close as we can get). We’ll be in Austin for SXSW and we’re booking some South West dates for May with The Action Design… We will see the rest of you soon enough! New record out BY June!
Nighty night. I have work to do… but pics first.
