It always takes longer than you think...... - June 14, 2016

OK, getting ready for what will probably be our LAST trip up to Don's for this project, finishing mixes. Then he runs the whole 51 minutes through the Masterizer or the Transmogrifier or the X-13 Blivitator with extra breem..... and out the other side pops some files i can send to the CD duplication place, along with the graphics files, then in a few weeks boxes of CDs come back and i start mailing out all the premiums and discs to our faithful IndieGoGo crowdfunders, and to libraries, and public radio stations.....
Not gonna be ready for TR's birthday on the 26th. But soon! Very soon!

Almost there! - March 23, 2016

Hi folks! Great news, we are in the final mixing phase of the album! Graphics are done and we hoper to have actual copies of CDs in about a month and will begin mailing out premiums at that time! So exciting! Then we'll get to burn the board and drink whiskey and ask you to write reviews! Thank you all so much for sticking with us through this project. It got very large, and being artists, we had to let it. We hope you get as much out of it as we have. :) As always, STAY TOONED!!!!!

luv & quork

New Year News - January 6, 2016

The turn of the seasons! We're past the winter solstice, Christmas, New Year's Eve and all the lovely disruptions of December. We're looking forward to another great year of being the rhythm section of Steel Wool. Check that link for our schedule.

Back to work on the album, "MUCH MORE BLACK". Like building a house there are so many layers and details that the average homeowner knows little or nothing about. When people ask us how is the album going, all we can do is smile and  say it's going really well. But it is a big project and it's taking some time, because it's just us creating, recording, engineering and editing and comping and punching and drinking...... huge thanks to Tifani Lauzon for taking care of all the mundane stuff like food, water, meds, fires, kitties..... EVERYTHING that's not the album! We'll be going back to Don's soon for lead vocals, but there is a lot to do----

---- yes, they DID used to just throw up a mike and play the song.  "They" sure did.  We've done that too. TR loves to sketch on bar napkins, and even occasionally breaks out the colored chalks and pencils and does some picture of a fish or something that's just lovely but takes hours.... and one time she even thought about taking up oil painting and decided to make an album instead.  Be patient, our friends and fans. It is cooking. It smells great.
