Tonight’s the night! Green Pajamas record release party for Death By Misadventure at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard. Will they play Mike Brown? Who knows? On the bill the mighty Icons and Unmanned Drone. Drone be first, PJs in the middle and The Icons close it up.
Yesterday, I finalized our upcoming Kickstarter project (more news soon), mixed Rollin’ On The Clay, tweaked up the mixes on Walkin’ In The Sky and There Be Killin’ (In My Town), started up a Green Pajamas Facebook page, sent out a couple zillion reminders about the PJ’s/Icons show at the Sunset in Ballard Saturday. Posted the new Green Pajamas video, The Queen’s Last Tango to the whole world. Remixed a 4-track of F.O.A.D. from 1983 to send to Jim Banner to post on his expanded What Syndrome?. Jim said he just got permission from Jim Basnight to use She Got F*cked, so these expressive masterpieces will be neighbors. Today I will finalize the mix for The Ballad of Carlton IV as well as two bonus download trax, Chet and Oh Libya!. This will complete the recording/mixing phase of my new album I Ain’t Blue Anymore. Master it and get a cover going and off we go. Listening to the download album of of Olympia stuff that comes as a download with Mark Baumgarten’s new book Love Rock Revolution as I write this morning. Nice sampler – recommended the book and the album!
I finished song 13 for my album today – The Day I Died. It is my last song for the album. Have a few mixes to tweak and this will be done. FYI – this song is not autobiographical. I am not dead yet. Like all the other songs on this album, I played everything. I am pretty happy with it.
Holy, Crapoly Batman! The Icons actually rehearsed last night for the Saturday, July 28th show at the Sunset in Ballard, where they will close the Green Pajamas record release party. I know you are thinkin’ – WHAT??? That is just crazy talk.
Are the PJs rehearsing now that the Frenchie- Lovin’ Lichter is back? Well, I just cannot say. Nope, I cannot say.
The PJ’s have a previously unreleased Summer of Lust era track, “In the Sky,” on the Lee Jackson tribute album,For Lee Jackson in Space.
