Insane days. Catastrophic show with Karl Mohr in Burk’s Falls over the weekend, balanced by beautiful nightswimming. Wary of developing the specialization “plays only with weirdass bands”. Not that wouldn’t be true, but I’m wary of it becoming recognized. Planning a three-act opera based on Karl’s on-stage auto de fe.
The Torture Memo record’s done. Fourteen hours at the studio yesterday with James Paul. Gallons of coffee and massive failure in the recent “stop smoking” policy. But excellent results!
And using a rational process for recording and producing was a very important idea. It’s been a past mistake trying to get a complete thing done in a closed time period. This record is done but still malleable, which makes our mistakes less tragic.
Show tonight = will be under-rehearsed.
