More Gratitude...

PussyGutt is thankful for recording sessions.

We used our down-time over the thanksgiving vacation to get in a gratifying recording session.

We began the process of recording our current set before we move on with some new creations that have been arising. We are trying to establish this habit - documenting, recording and giving our current works the full attention they deserve and then move forward with new creations.

This record will consist of the pieces we played for our last little jaunt of a tour and what we played for the hometown record release. If you did not get to see this live, you will
now be able to hear it at some point.... when it is released.

Friday was spent cleaning up after mega-family-get-together and tons of delicious food. Then setting up the drums and wrestling some good tones from those nefarious skins.

We then ran through the pieces to check out how much separation we need for the guitar cabinet, and get a little practice in.

We had some trouble with a couple mic placements. Tuning the drums is always a huge challenge. This is especially aggrevated by slightly warped toms.... Luckily one of the band members is a wizard of tuning drums at this point. You'll have to guess which one it is!

In the end, we got the bass drum sounding huge, the toms sounding dark and sinister, the cymbals are shimmering and glassy-goodness, ringing tones from the belfry.

For the support shown at the Record Release Celebration, we are truly thankful.

Gratitude to those who ventured into the untamed streets of Idaho to hear us play in celebration and tribute to this great accomplishment of pressing vinyl.

The shows at the Record Exchange and Neurolux, were both great.

Tour Was Excellent

Snoqualmie greeted us with the fogs of time
rain of saints
and trees of antiquity

Though the van may have been dying,
our souls were smouldering in rays of light
searing the moody blanket of cloud.

***These were the only pics gathered. The snoqualmie photo-shoot was grand and devoured the camera's battery life. Thus, the music and sights stand on their own. You must witness for yourself the live pgutt.******

A huge thank you to all those that came out in Seattle, Portland and Olympia.
Thanks to (a)SOR, Fauna, Vault Dweller, Same Sex Dictator, and Trees for your sonic and other contributions.

--We will see you next time Salem.

All should find and listen to Trees (pdx)
