Recorded a bunch of songs with UNCLE TOUCHY that will be going on various splits etc. This DEVO cover is the only thing public right now. Wish I had more time to make this mix less static.
i might actually tag along on the east coast tour as merch guy and buffet champion. not sure yet.
if you could hook them up with a date in baltimore, i'm sure they'll shower you with affection and maybe merch or something
Want Uncle Touchy to come party with you and drink you under the table in games like Liquor Pong and Pill Snort Tic Tac Toe? We're trying to fill some dates for our upcoming tour with SOFY MAJOR. If you can help out please let us know. Also, if have a life long dream of letting 4 greasy rednecks and 3 crusty Frenchmen crash your family's Thanksgiving dinner, we could probably make that happen.

I've been creamin' over the Jet City amps ever since they came out with the 20w head. This 100w even more so. I didn't even play it, but it was effortless to get the sound your hearing on the song. I had reservations about using a jazzmaster but it worked great.
How much of a balance of the two guitar mics do/did you use in mixes generally? Or is it more just a second option?
It's pretty much 50/50 - the sm57 gets some of the nasty high mids and the ribbon really thickens everything up. I throw it up on guitar cabs because it almost always sounds rad. The 57 track alone is a bit too thin.
I'm not even sure if I really conscientiously placed in a specific spot. Generally around where the dustcap meets the cone. The ribbon mic somewhat tames the highs a bit and has a fuller sound and it compliments the harsh shit of a 57 really well. Cheap mics, but I really like them on guitar speakers.

What AI are you using? Dig the Yamaha monitors in the setup and the low end mics do a nice job, great stuff. Also, that Jet City seems to get pretty nice and heavy. How are the cleans on that thing, any good? _________________ Peace & Chicken Grease

I'm just using two Presonus Firestudio Projects. They work ok, one has been through like 1000 power outages, so it's got a custom switch hanging out the top of it so I can reset it when it freaks out, lol. You can find them used for like $250-$300 typically, a great deal. I would like to have another and use my 'fried' one as a backup.
The yamaha's really translate awesomely, as you can tell i'm not working in a super tuned room or anything but I was surprised when listening back to mixes in cars and other places. they can be pretty fatiguing though. i try to keep my monitor levels pretty low.
I did not hear any of the cleans on the Jet City. The price is worth it just for the overdrive!
First bit on this video is another song from this session. Other stuff is SOFY MAJOR tunes which were worked on (not sure if mixed/mastered or what) by Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Converge, Made out of Babies, Keelhaul, Pigs) I think. I enjoy that deep bass.
