April ’09

I spent a weekend recording Chicago punk band The Methadones, we did 4 songs which will make up two 7” releases sometime this summer.

I spent a few days rehearsing for a show with the Riverdales down in Chicago..the show was a great time, looking forward to Austin in June

Mixed and mastered a 3 song live EP for Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound), the songs were recorded live on WMSE in Milwaukee, Greg was backed up by the Goodnight Loving and it sounds awesome.

Finished up an EP that I have been working at on Smart Studios with singer-songwriter Nathaniel Waldschmidt, thanks to Nathaniel for letting me pick all my favorite musicians to play on it.

Spent a day at Howl Street recording drums for legendary Fox Valley band King Friday. I remember going to see these guys play back in the day when I was about 14 years old, so it’s great getting a chance to work with them.

Recording has begun for the new Andy’s Automatics full-length. I recorded their last album a few years back, and I’m happy to be doing their next one as well.

Recording the new Truthdealer record has begun as Howl Street as well. We did music and vocals for all 18 (or so) songs in just a day.
