The plan was to improvise our way into someplace we hadn’t been yet.
I play the guitars while Brent Bodrug pokes and provokes and records the results.
The first session began with a bang ... literally. As we were about to start recording, I received a call informing me that our property had been struck by lightning, causing a fire in our shop. Luckily, thanks to the bravery of the gallant Edwin Stevens, the fire was extinguished before any further damage could occur.
Later that evening after the smoke had settled, we returned to the studio and launched into what became “Fireball”. It came from nowhere, reflected the moment, and gave us momentum. The rest of the session continued to bring several interesting moments, which empowered us to do another session and build an album.
Our next session started with some kinky guitar things involving welding wire and tie wraps. We continued to add various electrical sound altering devices, inspiring yet more lunacy and a lot of laughter.
I hope the spirit of these sessions gives you a charge.
