Had a goal of 19 songs. Completed 18. Will pick 13 strongest…

11-18-13 JJ here. I feel like celebrating. But my Butt is really sore from cramming and getting these songs done, sitting at daputer until wee hours of morning, night after night. Ok, yes, it’s been 3 and half years. I remember some of it. Don’t want to go thru this again. At least not until my butt is better. Doing some quick math; Roughly about 720 tracks were laid for 18 songs. These are now cleaned up and off to Brazil. Another 50 songs were recorded, but only have the basic tracks laid down for the most part. Not sure why these 18 made the 1st draft pick, but they did.

I’m proud to say that for the most part these were analog recordings, using analog gear and stored on digital tape, dumped to computer for cleaning up the messes. Four bandmates and some good friends lending their voices, and an instrument here and there, all played from start to finish by humans, and then digitally edited out the farts, burps, talking, laughing, and absolute drunkeness. The best stuff will be in the doc movie; MAD ANTS “One Last Chance.” We shot a lot of video too.
