The full-length album, Controls, was recorded at my new home in The Kingsessing, in the first week of November, 2012, during the first signs of what would become the most difficult time of my life, and of most peoples' lives that I know. It came out of a need to control the situation, which I have since learned to temper. The tracks are nostalgic now that most of that equipment is broken/impossible to record with. Excuse the departure from the tone of this silent blog.

Observe the music video for the single off of "Controls", "Monorrhea". Download Controls here.

Prof Mover

Settling down into new ways. This is what you see here (Tascam 4 track as a mixer/feedback master, and a tape EQ looking all 80s) plus DD-6, DD-7, and Pulsar Tremolo all wired up together in 3 different feedback loops.

That's it.

Peared Down

Think about it. Some sweet sticky duck down gown of your very own. Insert some yeast under your skin, balloon up, let it dry and cut it off, right up the middle.


Add buttons,

And try on your as-yet crisp, soon-to-be roughnsoft, grungey denimesque fav shirt of the 90s.

Can't seem to shake that guitar. I lose it every few years, but it keeps coming back for more. Slightly modified blues tuning, lost the diminished chord on top, brought the 5th down to a 4th. Sounds better. There are 3 main elements to this. The "beat" pedal loop, the "tone" pedal loop, and the guitar. All 3 feed into the "tone" pedal loop in variable ways.

Wifey Blues

Wifey Blues by Some Pepper
Bluesing aways on current and favorite setup. Beasty beats from trem, eq, pog, and delay. Bluesy bleeps from fuzz, me30, delay, and all working together through 4-track.
No source, all output.
This widow ain't no sponge on society!

Just grateful.

Is in the foreground. Lotsa tapes. 49. Gonna make you some tapes in August. Now is the time for requests. I will mail them if necessary.

that 4 track is nothing but a glorified mixer. don't get your iron oxide panties in a bind, they'll peel right off. the tapes will get their say in the "mixing" process.
I will feed them through each other.
Also, if you want the original content of the tape I give you that I recorded over, I'm digitizing them beforehand, and will put them somewhere for you to download.

Didn't think you needed to see this

But then I listened to it on these things Carl gave me called "headphones", and I like it a whole lot! Wet "n" Wild!

If you can't hear a "beat" at the beginning, you're not wearing enough "headphones".
