Shenny is the band name for Shenandoah, a song we recorded first with drummer Eric Herman, Paul, Bryon and me. That version is on the Day Before Yesterday sampler and has a backward guitar solo. We actually flipped the tape for it and everything.
The second version here is from Epiflot and features Ed Butler on drums, along with Paul, Bryon and yers. Both versions were recorded at Yellow Recording on Rosemary Street in Chapel Hill. This would have been around 1999 or so. Audio: Shenandoah.mp3
This session went well—about six tracks total and a lot of no pressure recording. We’ll have a few audio tracks up after Thanksgiving.
We kept it real simple, saying screw the bleed (we all play real loud anyway) and forgoing the baffles and such. It made for a nicer environment and really helped with communication.
Yesterday before heading to the studio, I registered the new site. Today, we’re getting ready to head back to the studio and things are starting to happen.
First off, this blog-looking homepage. It’s in wordpress, which I really like and, yes, this a generic theme we’re using—but it’s a nice one and we’ll trick it out for sure.
More later but I’ve got dinner started and gotta run.
