Just got back from getting my gallbladder removed.
I can't stand up for more than 30 seconds without the feeling of needing to vomit and also extreme discomfit in my abs. I'm hoping that this will mostly go away in the next couple days and i will be in pristine condition for the debut show of Tyson and his fabulous backing band on the day after the day after next.

Captain Wonderful has been taken off the back burner and new instrumentals are being written, hopefully Matt Steve has enough time in his hectic days to bring forth commencement of recording and writing vocal parts. Poor guy.

Seven Inches of Love

In honor of record store day even though technically it was yesterday, (but boxtr wasn't working so i couldn't upload anything) comes the first digital 7inch from 4th Floor on myspace until boxtr lets me upload songs again.

You're The One (that i love) B/W Stuck On You

Recorded over the past couple days

I figured out that i can take the drums in ez drummer and send them to different tracks for processing, so they sound a bit clearer, and i can put reverb on my snare!

Also just about every guitar part was put through my awesome new Space Echo pedal, god i love that thing.

if you listen closely one of the drum fills was sampled from Dr Dog.

So i was listening to a lot of Tripping Daisy last night and wrote this song that really sounds like them. I think it was also influenced by my sessions with Mr Moskal, maybe its time to make a project to head more in the psychedelic pop rock direction.

The main guitar was put through the speech wah pedal in Guitar Rig with a LFO on it. other than that its mostly just Big Muffed guitar and one with a tremelo and some delay here and there. The vocal in the first halfs of the verses were put through speaker simulation too to grit them up a bit. Enjoy.

So it's been a while, Life has been busy lately.

After my show at the house of Trepid i was told that i had a backing band, we've been practicing once or twice a week and are set to make our debut performance in a couple weeks at the Carl music festival under the name Tyson and the Trepids.

I've gotten work setting up and helping with audio and video at a bar for their blues night video cast every Tuesday, if the boss likes me I'm sure it can lead to an actual job in my Field.

I got a Gallstone and have to get my gallbladder out in a couple weeks, apparently this will supercharge my digestive system.

I think most of my album is going to be recorded with the band at this point, so i think I'm going to put out what was to be my first album as a download soon, also coming as soon as Mr Matt Moskal has some free time from his hectic itinerary will be the Appetite for Salad split as well as Matt's debut album.

Other than that I've just been working, sleeping and waiting for my acoustic to get fixed so i can feel inspired to write and record some music again.
