OME v. IPI-Mt. Tabor Suite, 2012

In April of 2012, Cloud Shepherd toured up the West Coast to Portland, OR to play a few shows.
These two recordings were made by myself (Infinite Plastic Internal) and Brian Lucas (Old Million Eye), in a late night ecstatic jam at the house in which we were staying.

Silencer Assembly recording session, 8/25/12

Yesterday the men of Silencer Assembly convened at Sharkbite studios in Oakland with engineer Scott Evans to record demos. It's been a long process, getting to this point, but I feel that the perseverance really paid off. We tracked eight tunes in about eight hours, and things went really smooth, aside from technical difficulties that Max had with his amp head.
Most of the takes that will be used are first or second takes. There were a few quick cut and paste jobs that Scott used, but, on the whole, it's live and honest. That's the way music should be.

Thanks to Scott for doing such a great job at the board, and for talking me into using a Ludwig Black Beauty snare instead of my Ludwig marching snare. Good call, man.

Above: that's a wrap

Birdsaw-Live at Bottom of the Hill; SF CA 6/2/2001

Just found these versions on a disc of live Birdsaw action. Most of the rest of the disc's tracks have digital rot, so they are lost. I like the S-L-O-W pace of this one!

Ovipositor-Skiing Mt. Douchewolf; Live at thee Parkside, S.F., 8/6/2009

A few days ago I heard this Ovipositor tune for the first time in at least two years. I really like it, as it represents an example of the Prog-ey Punk Rock that we were capable of. It was played out just that one time, and then dropped.
