On hiatus

I will be out of commission for the next couple of days. The Motor Primitives will be recording what we hope will be our next CD. We feel we need something that represents our current line-up as well as our new material. Rather than going in to a studio to record, we are bringing someone in to record us in our rehearsal space. It's something of an experiment dictated in part by our budget, but also an attempt to make it as comfortable as possible, hoping that a familiar environment will result in a more relaxed performance. We'll see how it turns out. In the mean time, the forecast calls for warm weather with a possibility of rain. We'll probably be losing much of our glorious snow over the next few days. Bummer.

Pity the poor band wife. (I'd say wives, but no one else has them, not even Pam.)

Hi Ed,
I've been away from BlogLand for a week or so. It looks like I missed a bunch of posts.

How exciting that you are recording a new CD. Familiar surroundings are bound to add a layer of warmth or comfort or ease to the wax.

Are you recording this in your "rehearsal space" so you don't have to wear any clothing? The public has a right to know!

On a more serious note, I finally show up at your blog and you go on hiatus!

Good luck with the CD. I would like an autographed copy, please

Suzy: All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you!

Crayons: As it turned out, I think you are right about the whole comfort business. See next post for more on the subject.

Poodledoc: We had to turn off the heat in order to keep the furnace from finding its way on to the recording, so we had to wear clothes whether we wanted to or not. It was a short hiatus, but I wanted to at least put something up so all six of my readers would know why I was away this time. Autographed copies will be available to right people for the right price.
