Title: Elvis is dead, deal with it
Artist: Nueget
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 1998


We were really good in Nueget / Megaspore Mothercell about getting an idea and then taking it to completion. We didn’t really have a song per se when we started here, but we sure did at the end of it. It’s definitely got that Sonic Youth garage vibe we were heading towards. This is just Steve and I while we were in-between bassists (which was quite often).
Props Steve.
And as a bonus, here’s the overdub version of White Rainbow complete with guitar shreds.

Figured it’d be a nice preview to start the record off with a little piece of the epic later to come. Plus, I really dig that snare glitch-splash through the reverb getting cranked up.

Title: Beat Friends

Did I time it right? Are we conveniently at a collaboration Thursday again? SCORE.
Friend on the street, friends on the beat, beat friends.
Jon provided the base drum sounds during a visit to Denton. Amazing what you can do with only a single sm57 overhead. I have gotten so much mileage out of these sounds, sometimes I want to scrap every other drum sample I have. I also love using my fingers to recreate what it takes homedude an entire body and a fair amount of stinky sweat to pull off.
This track almost made it onto the Old Town Acid EP, but I felt it really went with the vibe of this collection , so here it is.

Chuck originally called this one “Day in the life of a hypnotist”.

Named from a sampler naming mishap, I present to you another one of the oldest songs off this record. This was written in Anacortes in the fall around the same time as “Thumb”. It also contains rare samples created from even older buzz files. Performed live a couple times, and jammed to.
Then while recording, this really sweet groove opened up.

Final version of the ambient track I posted earlier this year (bonus track after so you don’t think I’m double dipping).
All the sounds in this one came from my first guitar, recently rigged up with piezo, plugged straight into my sampler. I got to say thanks again to my uncle for that guitar, cause it basically was my gateway into wanting to learn to hone my craft.
I want to dedicate this one to my good friend Kyle of California.

Chuck originally called this one “Leftovers” (and I like that).

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.

Title: Thumb
Artist: Noggin
Album: Sober October
Date: 2011

One of the oldest tracks, and most played out, I’ve been performing this piece at shows since December of 2009. I wrote this track one night in Anacortes when I couldn’t sleep due to excessive pain.
The beats came from wanting to honor DJ Screw in a way. The melody is a program I created on the MPC after sampling Alyx’s keyboard.

Chuck originally called this one “One amazing evening”.

Great! My plan worked perfectly according to …. plan(?).
Here we are on a Thursday (collab days) and the track we come to is pretty heavily collaborated on. I posted this track earlier this year, so yes, get ready for a bonus track today to quell any chances of haterism from the naysayers out there.
Jon played some guitar and I played some ER1 and we turned the gain to the tape reels up really high. Then I got crazy with the scissors tool and the spectral plugins in Logic.
This is the weirdest one.

Title: Walk Around (reverb track)
Artist: Noggin
Album: Reverb City
Date: 2010

This one grew out of a desire to roll tape, roll out reverb, and roll up… Kind of came out of nowhere, originally a beat I was working on for Karl, I believe, which likely might have been a beat I was originally working on in Oklahoma with Smile T. These things get mixed around sometimes in the heat of it all. If you don’t know the story by now, I recorded 4 tracks…two dry aux tracks and two reverb returns (stereo), only to find out that I didn’t really know how to use this new tape machine, and so only the reverb tracks got recorded. Still makes for some interesting listening.
Mpc + lxp1 -> tape.
