Upcoming Shows And 7" Lathe Cut Release

There is a new (very limited) Uglyhead release! A 7 inch lathe cut transparent picture disc featuring the songs Faces Of Fingers and My Feet Are Falling Off.
photo by Stuart AllerLathe cut records tend to be mono so I recorded (with some help from Jeremiah Smith) a special mono performance of both songs with a tube microphone and solid state pre-amp in an open room.  No multi-tracking or direct recording was done in order to get a particular sound that I thought would be ideal for the medium.  The result is a bit lo-fi but ultimately adds to the experience of listening to a lathe cut record.  I mastered the mono recordings and then sent them off to Matt Dixon in Arizona where each 7" was lathed in real-time. The end result is a beautiful looking and unique sounding two-sided transparent picture disk. 
photo by Stuart AllerBecause the recordings were made specifically to be heard in mono on a lathe cut record, these recordings will not be available digitally.  They will be for sale at two upcoming shows (listed below) in Portland, Or and Seattle, WA.  If any are left over I will make them available to purchase through uglyhead.org

Tour is over.  Thanks!

I just wanted to say thanks to the staff at all the venues I played at and everyone who made it out to the shows. Also thanks to all the bands I played with.  I met some awesome people!

I am settling in for the Winter and will be working on new stuff.  Hopefully I can release something new in 2015 and hit the road again.

In the meantime please check out the 2014 US Tour Journal if you are into that sort of things. I will be adding to it periodically.

HERE are also some photos from the tour from various sources
