Barney Cauldron-Du Yu Think Eyem Secksy

This recording was done during the summer of 2010. We had a long rambling conversation about Disco, then jammed it out. Dan took the recording home and added the very cool Dub-influenced middle part.
On this recording, Barney Cauldron was:
Dylan Haas: Saxophone, percussion
Scarp Home: Drums, vocals, trumpet, loops
Scott Jones: Guitar
Dan Kennedy: Bass, post-production, mixing
Mark Pino: Drums

Lawnmower was Ahab's most well-crafted tune. We recorded this 7" in the Fall of 1997. I was very proud of finally being able to play simply, and with good meter. Dig on Tom's woody bass tones and Bill's Strat sounds. Bill's music can be found here:

Second Failure Cock release of 2011. We work fast and cheap. Not easy, though.

Lithium Milkshake-Shovedhead

This track has always been my favorite by Lithium Milkshake.  We recorded it at a small home studio in the Sunnyside district of San Francisco. The engineer, Don Hunter, was a really nice guy. Justin Martin played guitar and sang, Hans Stahl played the bass (dig his "lead bass" style during the breakdown part), and I played drums with the characteristic Lithium Milkshake lack of restraint.
If memory serves correctly, Hans drew the milkshake cartoon.

Barney Cauldron-Shitting Crystals

These tunes were recorded at Scarp Home's house in the Spring of 2010. We were working on an album to be titled Shitting Crystals. Barney Cauldron began to devolve into a long-running debate on concepts and logistics shortly thereafter, and ended in the late Fall  of the year.
On these recordings, Barney Cauldron was:
Dylan Haas-Saxophone and percussion
Scarp Home-Drums, horns, percussion, vocals
Scott Jones-Guitar
Dan Kennedy-Bass
Mark Pino-Drums
The recordings were arranged and mixed by Dan with Ableton.

Six Girl Rhumba

This evening, my band mate Max begged off rehearsal, in order to dine at one of Oakland's finer establishments. I can't say that I blame him. Life must be lived. I used the opportunity to head down to our rehearsal space and make this quick recording. Six Girl Rhumba is another blatant bit of Milford Graves worship on my part, but I feel that it's a nice little piece of improvised drumming.
