Thunderbird


So the band has been thinking about an album laaang time. Waiting for the right record label to come and sign us started becoming one impatience so we decided to do it on our own. And at the best place we could think of. The Chennai sessions for our 7-song EP started on Monday and will go on for three weeks at Clemetine Studio (http://www.earthsync.com/). Mister Yotam I already know, he's the reason we're here - but at the helm for our sessions is one more deadly fellow from Tel Aviv, the new kid on the block, Noam. He had us clicking and clacking the whole of this week and made life very difficult for George the first couple of days. But after the jetlag wore off and we got used to the scrubs and a couple of well rolled ones in the balcony, George gave him some soopaar takes. Today is Runtun day and he's in there right now laying down some bass parts to complete the rhythm section - in fact it sounds like Snakes and Lotuses? George says yes. Next week Kamal and me puttings guitars and vocals. Pervez and Tron are also planning to show up at some point. We got one lowe of a tube amp from Auroville for our guitar parts, one flowerchild named Roy makes very beautiful ones and he's loaned this one to us for our sessions. This little trip is full focus only so far, no mood for afterparty madness. But by god of the napumsakalinga, recording an album is one emotion nuclear bomb. All previously undiscussed arrangement issues are crawling out of the woodwork and slapping us in the face like a thunderbird. But very required also I think... - absenticus
