    some rough mixes of the album we're working on with anthony rochester:

    had a listen sounds good...

    Liked it all a lot cept for the drum programming which irked. Keep it synthesised imho but that side of things needs some more work.

    and have you tried your voices in duet? I can imagine that working.

    did some work on the album today, worked on a whole new song, pete did the lyrics as anthony and i pieced together the music, the boy's a genius!
    so only a bit of vocals and melodica to get through when pete gets back from his melbourne shows in two weeks.

    live percussion?

    Royal Trux did a thing where a dude rubbed an electric shaver along the bottom of a huge pot.

    a gift from me to you.

    we handed out chopsticks to the audience to play along on their glasses and jordy, anthony and a random member of the audience played drums, tambo and cowbell as well.

    i'll go with the cooking pot but hey, it's your deal dudes
  • jdt wrote on 26 Jul '08, 20:45 report
    we finished recording the melodica and percussion parts (rubber mallet on shovel and chopstick on shovel) so anthony has started mixing it. looks like the album will have 9 songs.

    we're playing sunday the 3rd of august at the alley cat, hopefully debuting some new material.

    What's the name of the last song you guys played at the Loft last week?

    That was really good.
  • battle shark wrote on 19 Sep '08, 16:16 report
    That would be The Image of Annie & Ivan, which (unlike the ones in the videos) will be on the (nearly all done) album.

    just got the mastered version of the album, now if hobart city council would leave their lights on we could finish the artwork.
  • battle shark wrote on 26 Oct '08, 13:48 report
    I've just played through the entire mastered version of Always On on Audiosurf; you are, naturally, invited to try and beat me when you get the album yourself. Competition!
  • jdt wrote on 27 Oct '08, 20:04 report

    mel will be playing tracks on tasmusic on edge radio tomorrow night.

  • jdt wrote on 9 Dec '08, 23:11 report
    i think i just gave my best/most rambling interview ever and i don't think anybody heard it.
  • jdt wrote on 18 Jan '09, 15:26 report
    just did some promo shots with sean fennessey and the cover image is done, just have to plot out the stuff with the cover designer and contact the manufacturing people.

    feel bad about it taking so long but i was caught up finshing my tafe diploma at the end of last year and releases can get a little lost if put out over the xmas/ny period.
