Creamengine Mk.1

1994
After One Ton Hush fizzed out, Sean and I wanted to take the songs a bit farther. We were driving towards a still heavier and tighter sound. Greg and Steve were busy doing other things so we got a hold of Tim and do some recording. I decided to tackle all the guitar and bass duties. Our intentions were to eventually form a new band and play out. Tim would be leaving for Cincinnati soon, so we knew we would have to find a bass player and drummer.

First, we changed the name from One Ton Hush to Hush Mouth and a new 4-Track demo was recorded. Mics were rented from a friend of ours and we really stretched the 4-Track to its limit. In the end, the sounds were decent, but we wanted better.

A month later, I decided to rent an Fostex 8-Track reel-to-reel and try the songs again. They turned out much better and we had a respectable demo to use as a basis for our next band. We changed the name yet again to Creamengine. I believe The Sunny Side Up sessions still sound incredible to this day.

Gear: Fender Bullet, Gibson SG, Fender Twin/Chandler Tube Driver, Fender Bandmaster, Aria Bass. Tama drums.

Recording: Fostex reel 8-Track. Lots of rented mics. Soundmaster 16-channel 4-bus mixer. Alesis reverb, Alesis limiters, DAT machine.
