All tracks are recorded in a spontaneous improvised manner typically in a single take. Most lyrics are also spontaneous improvisations derived from the feelings of the moment. We let the guitar and drums interact and the music just happens. Most if not all of the music is inspired from this interaction.
The recording equipment consists of a dated Fostex 8 track and a few microphones...We simply lay down a guitar and drum track and let it unfold the way you are hearing it by bouncing tracks.
This crude and very inexpensive method of recording is then greatly enhanced through expert craftsmanship utilizing nothing more than a windows based computer and Cubase by Erika Bach at her Strudel Girl Studio in Ithaca Greece. Erika mixes and masters these sounds like a painter chooses colors and brush strokes to create a image conceived on canvas. She becomes a virtual extension of the entire artistic process that is irreplaceable in our opinions...Her strokes are all over the Songs!
All music is improvised by Michael Walker at his Purple Datsun Studio in the little room under The Big Sky of Montana...
