Oran "Juice" Jones

"I gave you silk suits, blue diamonds and gucci handbags.
I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce!
But now I can't give you nothing but advice.

Cause you're still young, yeah, you're young.
And you're gonna find somebody like me one of these days . . .

Until then, you know what you gotta do?
You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing,
hush puppy-shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with. Cause you

That's right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don't you know
You without me is like corn flakes without the milk!
This is my world. You're just a squirrel trying to get a nut!
Now get on outta here. Scat!
Don't touch that coat..."

Day 9 - Recording

Tonite was crazzzy! There must have been a full moon or something. I guess someone fucked w/ our engineer's knobs (ha ha), so all our presets and shit were fuct. Lots of program bugs, too - I was trying to do vocals, and the track kept muting itself. So weird. Oh, and somehow Nate lost his virginity without even knowing it in the studio. Damn horny ghosts!

But anyways, I did vocals on Dirty Hands and Honor Killer tonite. Came out ok. I can't wait to hear it next wednesday to see if it sucks ass or is super good. I can never tell! haha!

Some pics to come.

luv alyse.

Day 8 - Recording

Tonite we laid down one of our newest songs, "Oh Lord!". I used my trusty casio keyboard again, going through an old Stage amp. Sounded pretty creepy, which was good. I think I used Flute +tone bank+ Brass Ens. Jeff put a smoother bass in, and we did lots of trippy/delayed guitars. We still have to do some found sounds for the beat. I'm really looking forward to that part. Maybe I'll throw a sandwich against a locker or something.

Things are moving along quite quickly.

So far we got tracked:
1.) Dirty Hands
2.) Maurice Narcisse
3.) Texas Stampede
4.) Awake
5.) Honor Killer
6.) Bone Density
7.) Oh Lord!

Still gotta do:
8.) Like a Flood
9.) A Mark Unkind
10.) Canyon
11.) secret track!!!! We're bringing it back!!! hah.
