Welcome to Spaz

February 16, 2009 8:17 AM

My first ever RPM challenge song, a sludgy, fuzzy guitar riff-driven groove in the grand tradition of Oneida, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Sabbath.

All source tracks were recorded live in one night, in a completely improvisational studio session with my collaborators in a project we're calling "The Very Best of Spaz Rock." I then sliced and diced the joyful noise we made that night into usable parts and reassembled them into an unstoppable Frankenstein's monster of guitar rock groove using the dark powers of digital audio production. That's me on the guitar.

famous: me, too. and the way this came out was such a happy surprise (since we had no clue what we were doing at the time when it just sort of came together--with, of course, a little post-production mischief to flesh the idea out a bit).

sarge: yeah, i definitely agree. hopefully i'll get a chance to revisit it after this rpm challenge madness is over. right now i'm pushing myself to the limit just to pull enough material together (i'm resigned to the fact it'll be a little half-baked) in time for the deadline, since i barely have any free time to put into the project.

I wouldn't know what to call this, but that makes no difference, really so I'll just tell you that it sounds very well. It's not boring, repetitive or pointless, like some of the looser cousins of this kind of "exploration" can be. Good stuff, saulgoodman.
