This past week we’ve been recording a couple of songs for an up an coming 7″ which is slated to be the flagship release of a series of singles by our favorite local Kansas City Music Blog/Live Show Picture Source/Podcast: Too Much Rock. The A-Side will be a new, original, tune called Landlocked and the B-Side is a cover of Off Duty Trip by the Raincoats. Here’s a few pics of some of the shenanigans.

That pedalboard is one of the best investments I’ve made in along time. Already busting out the RAT pedal that my pal Sam gave me on a recent trip to NYC!
This was our first recording at our cozy new home-headquarters in Shawnee, Kansas. Of course we offer regular sacrifices to The Vaselines alter in the corner.
Recording in the house that I grew up in was a little intense. I have a very intimate knowledge of every corner of that place. As a kid my Dad used to stand at the top of these stairs and scream at me to get out of bed and get ready for school. The slap echo of that stairwell is embed in my brain. It turned out to be the perfect place to record backup vocals.
I LOVE my Rat.
I’m digging it. It’s like my “11.”
