Brian and I returned to Retro City Studios Monday night to finish up tracking guitars and vocals for our next song. It's an oldie, but what it lacks in freshness, it makes up for in funkiness. We'll have it mixed and streamlined directly into your earholes soon enough.
We've been busy this month, and we have pictures to prove it! But seriously, check out our Photos page for some good shots of our show at Voltage Lounge on May 10th and our first night of studio time last week at Retro City Studios. Ben and Eric expertly turned in drums and bass for the track, so Brian and I will be returning on June 2nd to try to wrap the song up with guitar and vocals. In other words, we have less than two weeks to learn how to play guitar and sing. Wish us luck!
In the meantime, check out the videos below from some of our Voltage Lounge set, if you're so inclined. Not included: The more-than-underwhelming twerking contest that took place on that very same stage mere minutes later.
On May 15th, we'll be entering Retro City Studios in Manayunk, and, if all things go well, in the wee hours of May 16th, we'll be leaving with a fully tracked song. This will be the first time Gene Wildest has recorded professionally, so we're looking forward to it. We've narrowed down our song selection to either an original that we've been performing live but have yet to record or a tasteful cover of "Summertime is Great" by the venerable Three Beat Slide. I think the choice is obvious.
