Business-wise, I just finished
my new record entitled "ALL
THE DOLLS IN THE SAME PLACE", with producer/engineer/mixer/Eventider/Red
Vines Licorice junkie Ronan
Chris Murphy, whose credits include work with Tony Levin,
The California Guitar Trio, King Crimson, Steve Morse, Robert
Fripp, Terry Bozzio, Steve Stevens, etc.
This "POWER DUO" album
features only myself and acoustic/electronic drumming madman Pat
Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mr. Mister, X.T.C, TU (with Trey Gunn), The Sugarcubes,
And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, etc.) BEATING THE SNOT OUT OF original
instrumental compositions that were specifically written and orchestrated to
textures! I could
the album, "The
One Million Dollar Muffin" or some other clever
title that references the kidnapping
of my Grandmother....But, "ALL
THE DOLLS IN THE SAME PLACE" just PLAIN rules!
**Here's a sneak peek MP3 from
the new record, "ALL
THE DOLLS IN THE SAME PLACE", which exclusively
features my fretless 6-string bass: "Consequence". Sweet.....This
tune utilizes both a fretted 5 and a fretless 6-string
I had the record mastered at Threshold
Sound by Chief Mastering Engineer Stephen
Marsh, who has done stellar mastering jobs for KORN, Incubus, Ozzy Osbourne,
etc. I am not sure if he has done any work for Diddy. I know he
did some great things for CARNIE......But
most importantly, it was his genius work for Kenny Loggins that earned him
Record from The RIAA!
You can check out some cool
pix and videos HERE and at
Pat Mastelotto's website.
I am planning to play as many live
concerts in the U.S. as possible as well as a small-scale tour in the UK and
Japan to promote this record. The Brits love me. They love my footie
knowledge and affinity for hooliganism. The Japanese love me because
I hate Bok Choy and mushrooms. I love them right back. I have a
RED ninja suit and several Hello Kitty! trinkets and whatnots to prove it. YOU
CAN'T TRACE IT OR NUTHIN'!!!!
