Flu turned into walking pneumonia……….Rad. So I’m gonna start posting some music that I’ve been getting email about starting with the roughs for the second SRC record, then possibly some R.O.T.T stuff. It’ll take me a little time but I’ll get it all on here.
So I came home from Seattle for Xmas break from making this new Queensryche record and got the flu when I stepped off the plane. After 6 days it turned into walking pneumonia. Some fuckin vacation….. Reminds me of sum thin my ex wife once said, “you should quit all that record makin’ nonsense and get a real job with benefits,dumb ass. Now pass the ice cream and find the remote”
She might’ve been right……
It just appeared that way. Ok, I’m taking this blog business serious this time dammit!!!
Here’s 2 songs that Warners wouldnt let us put on our first
record.I think the old demo’s are our best work,it’s nowhere near as
polished or slick but it’s a lot more honest and true to our lives
at the time.There was a method to the madness of the early Brougham
songs,we would hook a drum machine up to the stereo in my caddilac
and drive around and make beats until they started serving lunch at
The Brass Rail our local strip club.We’d Drink some beers,have
breakfast,say hi to our friends at the club and then head to the
studio to record what we’d come up with. We’d usually return to the
Brass Rail around midnight and have em play the new song…..you
know,just to make sure it was club worthy.After a month we had the
original 20 demos that got us the deal with Warners. Fuck U 4 Not
Loving Me Back
1000 White Girls
ok, I actually have a blog that I’m gonna keep up to date. For privacy reasons I’m gonna code name bands I’m working with and be a little vague about those things cuz some people dont want their business posted,projects change and I’m just plain superstitious. To be honest I’m mostly keeping this thing as a reference because my memory is so bad and this way I can look back at what I was doing and when.Theres an MP3 player that I’ll add music to from time to time.At some point I will post a couple tracks off every record I’ve worked on with my memories of that project as they are getting cloudier everyday. I’ll try and find a way to section off all the technical nerdy recording stuff so non nerds dont have to suffer through.
This is a test to see if the audio player is working.The song is from my old band Snake River Conspiracy,if you like it go to iTunes and buy it.This is what I was doing in 2000,seems like a lifetime ago………If I had it all to do I’d keep it just the same………I just wouldnt go to the strip club to find a singer.
