as most of you know already, I’m going to record my current album “Music of Ghouls” on 18th and 19th of august at Seizures Palace in a new fashion. 2 days with the band El Chico Blanco from New York will have to be enough time to record about 90% of the album.
the remaining 10 % I pre-recorded on upright bass and vocals as guide tracks. so on AUG 18/19 we’re adding and jamming additional material for the record.
there will be 3 additional tracks which we will do as a live group. the new thing here is that there will be no bass on these tracks, since I’d like to get the pure El Chico Blanco sound without interfering with my bass playing.
we’ll do a rehearsal of the material in the mornings and then record and do overdubs in the afternoon. I’m aiming for a fresh live sound instead of a rehearsed and polished one.
I’ll stream the rehearsal part of the recording (which will also be recorded, of course) and what you get to see is the first edition of us trying these songs, forming, improvising, jamming them to get a live-feel for the album.
so, naturally, there’ll be plenty of surprises in the music, I guess, so tune in to see us work live and hopefully get some great moments on tape for you to watch.
here are the dates and times
AUG 18, 12pm-2pm (EST) (=18-20h Germany Time)
AUG 19, 11am-1pm (EST) (=17-19h Germany Time)
