Turkey Sessions

1990
Sean had always had a natural knack for the drums. I talked him into purchasing a cheap drum set just before Thanksgiving. There was not much going on band-wise for a few weeks so we decided to try to write some tunes. The idea of doing everything "ourselves" was nice because it saved us from having to track down a drummer and bass player . This would really be the first time that we had dared to write and record our own material. We hit the basement studios at Farmview every chance we got during that week in November and came up with some fun stuff. Of course, Greg and Steve stopped down to help out. Sean's drumming was impressive for the lack of formal training. I love the drums too and foolishly insisted on playing on a few tunes. We also recorded some covers to mix things up.

Gear: I dont remember all the gear I used, but I believe I was playing through my Fender Twin/Chandler Tube Driver rig. For guitars, I used a newly acquired Kramer aluminum (sold later), Fender Bullet (still use). The Drums were a set of 'clear' Ludwigs. The only cymbal we had was a single cheap ride. No hi-hats!!. I recorded everything with an Tascam cassette 4-track, e/v vocal mic and an sm 57. I believe the drums were recorded with a single sm57 overhead mic.
