This is the one that's close to finished, and holds the uninspired but functional working title "The Chuggy One." It needs major tightening up - we're still not used to playing with a drum machine, and we can't always quite hear the downbeats, so you'll probably notice some drifting off-time. Headphone monitors will remedy that issue, and we'll have those starting with the next practice. Dig the Trans-era Neil Young vocoder. (Idiots who go hatin' on Trans: die, fuckface.)
This next is a segment pulled from a lengthy electronic improvisation that Chuck and Mike did, and that we're committed to turning into a proper song. I sat this one out, pre-occupied with what was perhaps the longest-taking guitar string change in history, though in this excerpt there is a spot where you can hear me calling my guitar a sonofabitch. We'll just call that my contribution. It might be worth noting, Mike played most of his parts on this song on his phone, and I will in all likelihood be doing the same when we get to arranging it this weekend.
More to come, of course, when more exists. —Kretsch
