Distortion. Always start with distortion.
From the band…
We’re on Instagram! Yeah, I know, welcome to the 21st century pal. We’re headed back to SongBuilders to continue work on the next great rock album, and we’ll post some pics. From what we can gather, there’s not a lot to it. Basically, you see something (in many cases that something is youself), you take a picture of it (i.e. you) and you post and tag.
Kind of like Kurtist3, who took a picture of his fruit bowl. #work #fruit #healthy #grub #spoon #nightshift
Look at how close he came to describing our night and he doesn’t even know us… yet!
Hey Kurtist3, come check us out. Oh wait, we’re supposed to say follow us.
Well, in this case, we do. We are going to make a refreshingly relevant, raucous, rabble rouser of a rock and roll record. (Alliteration… drop the mic.) We are going back to the studio (a.k.a. SongBuilders) tonight to continue the journey toward punk-ish perfection. Along the way we’ll be posting little snippets for you, some you may have already seen on Facebook and other not so social media places. This little clip gave me a chuckle, so I thought I’d share. One, because when preparing to make your amps go to 11, you really only need a few essentials with you, and two, because my dear Andy hates these particular essentials and much prefers the kind our fish likes to drink (hence FWABL… 10 points for whomever can tell me what that stands for). He drinks like a fish and he drinks like our fish. Ha!
Anyway, throw a couple cold ones in a cooler and hit the LITEs, it’s time to rock.
We are pumped to be heading out tonite to see legendary DC melodic hardcore band Dag Nasty at the Black Cat. Hey, remember that time we played at the Black Cat with Suffrajett? Man, they were good and what a fun show that was… back… in… 2005… well, anyway, back to present day. Dag Nasty has been rocking on and off, in various forms, for a long time. They are a product of the mid-late 80’s post-punk hardcore scene that we love so much and that has influenced the grubspoon sound so heavily. It’s encouraging to see them still putting out new music and we’re looking forward to their upcoming 2 song release on Dischord on May 20. Speaking of new music, our recording session last weekend went great. Thanks again to WrightWay Studios, SongBuilders Studios and Studio Unknown. We still have work to do, so hang tight, but we are well on our way to sharing new grubspoon with our world of fans. We’re pumped to rock with you all too!
