FREE Download! Outta the vault, this is the B Side to our 7” a few years back. The 7 inches are history and this song has never before been downloadable. It’s a war drum jammin’ track called “Outta Yer Mind”!

It’s funny that after a few years of doin’ it, making a record still doesn’t have a strong set of rules or a right or wrong way of making it happen. I guess in this situation, ‘formula’ wouldn’t be too popular a word. Still, a starting point can be helpful…it’s just not the way that things get done in our neighborhood apparently.
What does happen though, is that with all the experimenting and thinking and thinking and thinking that happens when trying to get a record together, we are afforded a long period of time to weed out the bad ideas. This might seem obvious, but instead of cranking shit out and moving on to the next seemingly good idea, we roll it around a bunch of times. Speaking for myself, I think I need to really get a sense of if-it-were-another-bands-song, would I actually like listening to it? If things are fast and simple, I tend to find myself being really hesitant and cautious. I need to know my answers are all ‘yes’.
We also like to work with big idea people as often as possible, and as you’d expect, big idea people are usually in pretty high demand. It almost always results in a slow moving process and lots of timing things and scheduling. This results, in turn, in lots of waiting and repeating.
The good news for us and you loyal few still reading, is that the record we’ve been making is almost done. It’s been mailed to LA and the things were hearing in our inbox are all good. More than good in fact. I’m so pleased with this record that I’m saying ‘yes’ to everything, and that’s all I need really. We’ll let you know when you can agree or disagree too, soon.
Thanks for all of your ongoing support. We appreciate it.
