the monkey power trio completes their 13th day as a band

Sorry I’ve been neglecting you for the past several days. I’ve been in the lush, green mountains of north Georgia, working on what promises to be the “MOST RECENT” Monkey Power Trio record in our 13-year/day history. I’ve got to go to bed now, but here are a few little, drunken videos that I shot. If you think any of it sounds interesting, leave a comment and I’ll let you know when the new record comes out. It generally takes us at least six or seven months to get our records out after a session, but, if we can get our shit together, I think we’d all like to have this one done by Christmas. (So that we can give copies to our kids instead of gifts.)

The session was pretty uneventful. Not a lot of drama. No fisticuffs. No killer flu strain. No significant equipment failures. I did, however, fall out of bed on Friday night, after our day of writing and recording. It wouldn’t have been too bad at home, but the bed I was sleeping in at the cabin was about five feet above a cement floor. If I were any older it would have meant a broken hip, but I was able to limp away with only minor injuries… My whole left side is now slowly turning the greenish gray color of a poorly refrigerated side of beef.

I don’t want to give too much away but there were songs this year about horrible car crashes, ghosts, sea monsters, being hit by religious texts, the Voyager space mission, the practice of phrogging, and, if you can believe it, the “brave statistics of cutlery.” And, as if that weren’t enough, I got to sing the phrase, “fuzzy slippers for my lay-deee” over and over and over again.

If you’re feeling adventurous, head over to Youtube, where you can listen to a few rough mixes from the session. Basically I just pointed my camera at the boom box that we were listing to everything through. You can barely hear some of it, but I thought that a few of you might like it.

And, here, with all of that said, are a few video clips I shot with my camera. Some of it is jeuvenile. I apologize for that… I’d also like to take the opportunity to say that, while these clips might make drinking look fun to some of you, it’s actually a terrible, terrible thing. (If you don’t believe me, I’ll show you my bruise.)

    “Produce the Bruise” wouldn’t be a half bad name for a record, you know?
