LOOK, AT WHAT I.. HAVE.. CREATED!!
yup, so I've spent all week remastering the unmasterable.. we're talkin' the musical equivalent of having yer teeth pulled by some crazed ex KGB east german dentist with thick glasses.. the sort've "hive of villianous scum" in musical form that'd send most sane sound-engineers screamin' for their mommy's.. but oh NO.. not ME.. not THIS kwazy kat.. I'm just that kind've barrel-full-of-monkeys-strapped-to-C-4-fuck-off-beserker idiotic enough to attempt this shit.. risk my sanity.. eat / sleep / shit it day in and day out Martin Sheen in apocalypse now (redux) style and somehow STILL come out of it all the better for it.. (phew..)
yup, I'm done with "round one" (SUBWOOFER songs, circa 2000 - 2001..) I've given them the once over.. a gonzo spit n polish.. pulled meself inside-out screaming with the blood spouting of me eyeballs horror movie style when I encountered the sort've fucked up CHAOS I once confused with ACTUAL songwriting back then.. and yet, thru it all.. they've come up a real treat.. all sharp n zingy, clear as FUCK.. and bouncin' the levels like freakin' pocket rocket block rockin' anthems.. remastering DOES make a huge difference.. it's just like I originally imagined them now, but minus the mud-happy playing bongo's in the toilet during a thunderstorm turd mix I originally had..
so, the hard work is over.. now it's onto "round 2", remastering the SUBWOOFER cuts from 2002 - 2003.. the songs where I actually HAD a clue.. (so, the work should be brief.. and relatively painless and brainless..)
now, I'm taking a little break.. spinnin' the new CD's I bought on Friday.. ya basic hard-to-find back catalog cheese cuts.. (but, damn cool the lot of 'em..)
APHRODITE - AFTERSHOCK
just cranked this, this afternoon.. and seriously, pick it up.. it freaking ROCKS.. if ya like bouncy bouncy wall fuzzin' drum n bass with some killa hooks n tripped out buzz to it.. then GET THIS BIATCH :)
PHOTOK - FORM & FUNCTION
playing this right now.. more weirdly dark n sonic sci-fi drum n bass.. kinda coffee table, but.. cool trip-out ambient.. play this shit in an art gallery..
FLUKE - RISOTTO
I already got the album, "puppy" a few months ago (which wuz a damn cool little album).. here's one of their's from 1997.. just skipped thru it briefly (haven't heard it yet), but, seems cool 'nuff..
FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON - LIFEFORMS
2 CD set - weird druggy ambient electronica.. must find a hungover sunday braindamage moment to spin this to full effect..
WEEZER - PINKERTON
um.. yeah, coz it wuz $18.. and hey, can't go wrong with weezer ;)
yup, it's all about the music 'round ere kiddies..
