are pleased to present our newest release, "Women and Other Visions".
It only took 6 years to record. In that time, we've had numerous hairstyles,
misplaced many pairs of expensive sunglasses, and failed to find anything
humorous about New England black ice. Alls well that ends well,
though, and we've managed to stay friends. We hope you will listen
to the samples of the three songs at right to give you an idea of
whats on the record. But, about the recording process . . .
Our brilliant engineer and co-conspirator, Bruce Seifried, built
a studio for us to make this record, replete with a Studer 24-track,
tube amps and genetically altered and gender confused Barbie dolls.
In spite of our attempts to de-rail recording sessions with sticky
eyeball contests, farting toys, brain hats and our pet dogs, Bruce
managed to capture our true artistic expressions on tape. If we
brought the dog, he recorded it; when we had trouble hitting the
high notes, he brought the step ladders in; when we wanted to re-mix
the same song for the 49th time, he said, "Uh, o.k.".
Our most memorable moments from the times we spent together include:
an evening strolling through a cemetery in Englewood NJ, peering
into crypts; playing rough mixes for our friends; breaking to attend
Martys graduation from Police Academy; having to stop vocal
recording sessions because the heating pipes would clang their own
tunes; being visited by purple-haired trolls who insisted on having
their way with Barbie; drinking so much coffee we had to be careful
not to sing the songs too fast; recording in Leahs music room
with Tom McClung while Marty sang "Blues
for a Snowman" live; and the first time we heard the string
parts Matthew McCauley had written for "Is
Love a Thing You Learn."
We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labors. Youll see this
isnt a fancy record, rather, it is one from the heart. We
wanted to present our songs and our voices as if they were the solitaire
in the diamond ring with little to distract the listener. We owe
an enormous debt to each and every contributing musician who helped
us realize our dream and to our families and friends who believed
in our music. Aloha!
