Mike and I have been staying fairly busy the past few weeks, but we found some time to do some recording. In January my aunt bought a building on Comanche street here in Purcell. She is finishing up remodeling it, and we liked the sound of the foyer, so we drug some guitars, a bass, some microphones, a Woody Guthrie picture and a wire mannequin into the foyer and hit record. The ever-helpful and cheerful Clint Kirby helped engineer the sessions (dubbed "The Comanche Sessions" by Clint). We recorded everything live with the exception of one harmonica part which we recorded through a homemade, tin-can microphone. Within about 12 hours, we recorded 6 songs which are currently being mixed for your listening pleasure. You can listen to one of these songs at parkermillsap.bandcamp.com. Within a week or so, we should have all of the tracks up for listening. Maybe. I'm forgetful.
In other news, we're trying to stay busy. Idle hands create trouble or something like that, so I do lots of sign language and thumb-twddling. Also, I try to book shows. The following are the fruits of my labor.
