Description
This is a recording of a recent Splinter jam session at Ultrasound rehearsal studios in NYC. Recorded straight to Zoom H2 digital 2 track. Our first session with a new drummer MarcB.

Stu - bass, LSD25 - guitar, MarcB - drums, Bud - guitar and vocals.

This takes a little while to get going - but eventually something happens - I think. You tell me.

Thanks to Karen, Bob and Mark for commenting on the earlier release that had a crackling sound I didn't notice. Hopefully this sounds better.

How Long
I thought I was seeing things! So - ditto what I said before - lol - I didn't notice any crackling sound either (still waking up - that's my only excuse!)

Thanks for stopping back Karen
This is a bit rough around the edges - but it cleans out the cobwebs.

The rhythm track...
...strikes me as just about perfect. I was, though, waiting for a really wild lead guitar flying out of there...was a little disappointed. I had the work really hard to hear the vocals...and finally just decided to concentrate on the great rhythm track. Seems like this number has a ways to go in development, but it is sure a great start. [just my opinion...and I am probably not qualified to make it!]

You're right Paul -
we were saying the same thing - where's our 19 year old shredder to rip over this? We've all slowed down a bit I'm afraid - and truth is - I never was a shredder to begin with. Really nice of you to listen and comment.

how long was it?
I wasn't paying attention to the time.

I had the headphones cranked on this. So I had a better feel of being at a concert. If my ears ring for a while, so be it.

Fun, to listen to an extended jammin' version. along the Crazy Horse line. this fits the bill.

Great groove on this
I love the guitar sound, and the drums sound good, too. Vocals are a little lost in the mix, but the singing sounds good - reminds me of Ian Curtis in passages. Great loose vibe. I think Vic hit the nail on the head with the Crazy Horse reference. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

You're right about the mix -
but there was no mix - just four guys in a room with a questionable PA. what you hear is what we had. Vic is right - I've got a little Crazy Horse in everything I do I think. They exist at a high level of mediocrity that I aspire to.

Yeah
There is just nothing like what you can get from a good jam session. It seems like the best stuff can come up. Good thing you recorded it. I love this stuff.
Great track Bud.

Fort Collins . . .
This reminds me of a band that lives and plays in my former college town, called Drag the River. I love the scratchy quality of this recording, like Op Ivy's CD: it took me a while to warm to the sound, but now I'm hooked; thanks for fulfilling my lo-fi fix.
Cool bootleg, Splinter.

Is that a dog?
At the end of this recording is there a dog cheering for you all, or am I just hearing things?

Great listen.
Cheers

heavy duty
Gritty and grimey in all the right places[erformance is spot on, the recording is somewhat blown out a bit. The atmosphere this creates splits the wall paper Excellent!

This is a great session

Hey Benny -
Nice hearing from you. I'm working on a rig to take to the rehearsal space where I can get a little more control over my live vocal sound. The roughness will still be there though - we're not that good to do it any other way.

Macaudion said 3215 days ago (June 8th, 2008)
uh oooh...
I'm a little late here, and trying to play catch up. My apologies, Bud and the gang.

Dign' the dirtiness 'round bout the edges. An authentic jam session, indeed. This one grabbed me, Bud! I'm willing to bet that I've just listened to this "grungy piece of rockn' blues thang" more than anyone else has.

Nice jammin! As real as it gets!

Thanks for putting it out for the grab. Macca

I did a solo GB version of this last year
and pulled it out at tour jam. It's also on the splinter page - which you may have visited I think.

19 Year Old Shredders
...not sure if this needs one of those or not. I listen to this, drink a cold beer and feel a few drops of sweat work their way down my back (it's 97 degrees up here in the train room where I make my GB music) and this loose, swampy groove seems just right for the heat.

Don't worry, I brought enough beer for everyone. You guys got ice?
bud said 3211 days ago (June 12th, 2008)
Swampy Groove
you make it sound kinda romantic. Pass the beer.

Ed Hannifin said 3212 days ago (June 11th, 2008)
Well, sure...
...it has much of Neil Young and Crazy Horse to it, but I'm also hearing some echoes of the old ROIR tape I had of the band Television...

I suspect that it works best over headphones, where you can hear deeper into the mix and get more of a sense of it as a song...

Nice staggering rockness...

Ed

Nice collab guys! Keep the jams comin!

Be well!

The song itself is frigging bloody
awesome. Recording not so much. It sends shivers up my spine to think of where this song can go after everything is a bit tighter and rerecorded.
