Anyway, see that picture? Done by the second grade class at Templeton Grammar School, California. It's a whale. I've got a hundred more like it. I am in love with those excellent little creative minds, and so sad knowing what they will have to face trying to save the world with the mess we left them. Well, not we. Actually, just those backward idiot contractors and tradesmen driving the white pickup trux with spackle all over the side of the drivers door. Jerks!!
So, the latest CD, entitled, 'LEGEND OF THE LOS OSOS KIDD' is done and it came out perty darn good. :) I had to sing while sick, jam in between cars passing by on the highway outside the studio, and deal with an engineer who was always looking to get out of the studio as fast as he could. :/
But I decided that would all just add flavor and so I pushed on through and kicked a lot of ass baby.
Then, because I like to feed all the animals, a family of packrats moved into the walls of the studio and ate the wires, so the studio is out of commish for a spell. :(
But let's face it, with the last two CD's, and like 12 total, I have gotten to a point where I want to be out performing rather than in a dark box recording! And I am sooooo sick of solo acoustic mello blues, putting everyone to sleep, including my left leg, which ALWAYS starts to tingle second set!
I am back in touch with my drummer Ron Pepper Gaddis, and my bassist Chuck Ugalde from ICE, many moons ago- maybe we will throw together a nasty band. We are certainly capable! Meanwhile, I'm busy saving the world out in the field and on facebook. Check me out, I got skillz: On Facebook: Joey Racano
Oh! That's right! I brought some old tapes in and had them digitized at Sutton Sound, and I had an 8 track multi sent to Thin Brown Line in Aneheim Hills, where they had to BAKE the fuc#@$ng thing to get the music back out of it after 30 years!! On the 28th of this month (April 28, 2014) I go into Sutton Sound and re mix from WAV files! Like a 30 year time machine! Amazing. I'll let you know.
love and respec
