1 Last Time

Before we are without the devices which enable us to keep this project moving along, ie computers, microphones, etc...we would like to offer this as a preview of the live set. All demo material barring 1 track. We will more than likely be sounding closer to this on the road. Enjoy. If youre not already there, come to Europe.

Counting Down

2 days left.
It seems like an eternity ago when we first discussed this experiment. Second time around. 1 year in. Almost. Very excited to begin again. New cables purchased, trans-Atlantic rehearsals conducted. We will attempt to avoid the disaster which plagued us throughout our one and only NYC show. The laptop which was determined to butcher our set is somewhere on the west coast courtesy of ebay. New techniques will hopefully ensure a smooth production. Who knows. Someday we will put a full band together and do it without technology. Maybe, maybe not. I do believe the technology bit is here to stay. Can work with a full band no? Doesnt matter this time. 3 guitars again. Hamburg in 72 hours. Hope to see you there.

Orange County California. Beautiful. Having been totally outclassed by Socal waves, called this trip off early. I have no business out there when a 10 foot swell rolls into town. Thank you to all involved. Fun week.

Stranded at the Sky Harbor in Phoenix. Never a good time.

2 weeks until tour. Can that really be?

woke up early and decided we needed to get out of the city and went
north to a spot i know and have been going to for over 10 years.
sun was shining and the water was cold but fuckin a it felt good.
the drive up reminded me that we are, in fact, leaving for a european
tour in 20 days. i played guitar all weekend. singin old songs, new
songs, borrowed songs, lost songs, etc.

Officially excited

Not So Golden

Typically quiet and I are pretty close. We have a real fondness for one another. However lately, some might say its been a little too quiet in these parts. Tour is almost completely confirmed. Tickets have been purchased. Sat down and rehearsed as a duo last week for the first time since the NYC show. Sounded just fine. A relatively interesting weekend on this end. Good music, some fun with friends, so on and so forth...Going to try out flying with this hearing deficiency this week. Viva LA. Hopefully it all happens without incident.

Sunday, beautiful and consistent though incredibly crowded. Shed the boots and took in the sun. Waist to chest high with slight sse wind.

Endless Divide

Its never easy standing in the middle. Half decided, half realized. Being adrift may be one of our strongest suits...half of us that is. To one of us, and to some degree both, it is unsettling. Staying productive, photos today, rehearsals as well. I can imagine having answers would make a lot of my daily routine a bit mundane. Regardless, moving along...

southeast windswell is disappearing, chop is making everything unrideable. Hopeful for the weekend.

Ship To Shore

This week we picked up where we left off. 1 new track and plans for the next few. Ian has been putting in double time. We are grateful. Tour is taking shape. Continental European dates locked in. Still looking for something in England week of July 17th. Remains to be seen. Hopefully we get it sorted this week but as of now...not looking good.

Waves were good on Sunday and then the south wind flattened everything out.
