Title: bub
Artist: Noggin
Album: Classic Trash
Date: 2002

This one was all about the drums and breaking out of any sort of genre that might have tried to encapsulate me in 2002. Its heavy on the melody and heavy on the bit of bounce. Its weird and its funky and damn I like it more now than I even did then, I think. Also managed to pull every tracker technique out the book on this one.
dig it.
Shout out to Arguru.

Maybe you heard, but I have no idea how I recorded the original version of this that ended up on Reverb City and Sober October. So in an attempt to recreate it, I jammed this out one night.
It’s obvious a lot cleaner, but I think I still like something about that uber-washed out reverb-only version.

Album: Sober October
Date: 2011

Here’s the one track from the Reverb City sessions (sort of a Sober October sessions alpha version) that actually made it to the album. I just liked the jam so much I couldn’t let it go. And yes, since I already posted this, bonus track is included.
MPC straight to 1/4″ reels via LXP-1 on full reverb.

More noise jam from the Nueget days. If I recall correct, I actually wrote this one. This is with Patrick on bass and of course Steve on drums. There’s another version with multi-tracked guitar that will get uploaded at some point.

Had a good time this am. Got there early! I’m still loving this Larry Joe Taylor guy so you get to enjoy him some more. I’m doing the country show again tomorrow, so if you are into that, it’ll be up here tomorrow.
ps. NERD ALERT: I always thought these files sounded…’phasey’ (very technical term). Anyway, turns out that one of the channels (left or right) is wired up backwards, and that’s making the recordings sound ‘thin’, ‘washed out’, ‘phasey’…I was able to fix it for the second hour, and I will try to fix these from now on, until I can get the station engineers to re-wire the record output.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Kid606
Chris Catalena
Erykah Badu

Way more boring in terms of the weather this go round. However, a bit fun, because I decided to ‘fly blind’ and spend the entire first hour mixing a bunch of funk/disco cuts that I had never heard before. Bonus points because there is no way to monitor the cue + the program, so you really have to mix live where everyone can hear. The second half is a bit on the classic country tip.
Includes hits from, but not limited to:
Willie Nelson
Billy Preston
Suzy Q
Sons of the Pioneers
Merle Haggard
Lightcrust Doughboys
Gayle Adams
etc, etc…
Oh also I’m splitting them into two ~hour long sets so you can burn to cd and take a little slice of noggin with you as you go about brightening the world with yo bad self.
