Pink Elephants on Parade

last night i went out to Towne Lounge and saw the most amazing band: Akron/Family. most amazing thing ever. kinda made me feel bad about what i've been doing, just kinda bumming around, taking it easy. those guys were great. they were so good, in fact, that after getting home and emily going to bed, i stayed up late working on music. inspirational.

the opening band, Plants, has a friend of mine in it.. and before the show we talked a little about shows, and he mentioned he had some 'different' shows in the future, where it'd be more soundscapes and noise and less pop stuff. that got me thinking about my ol' college days, when i was a lot more arty. so i was working on noise bits.

but thats not what i have today.. Pink Elephants on Parade was going to be for the new mex rev, but we never really got a handle on it, and we're not a band to force anything, or work hard.

so i went home and did it myself.. the best part is probably emily singing, and cracking up right at the end. good stuff. when i was recording all the marching snare drum stuff, it became apparent that i haven't been playing the drums for awhile.. i lost a lot of finesse and control. that was sad.

drunken mice, drunken elephants, dancing.
