three studies for a crucifixion waste of tape!

velocity - recorded 7-26 mixed 7-27-94. others recorded 10-08 mixed day after turkey day 94 by adam smith @ cv electronic music studio in vienna, wv on tascam analog 388

this is only a representation. no, it is not mixed and equalized to perfection and you'll probably think that this sounds crappy. maybe it doesn't sound like the new quicksand cd…it shouldn't. we sound crappy live, so it is sensible that these recordings would sound crappy. as much as we could, we wanted to make these recordings as true to us as we could. we did most of it all ourselves (with the help of a wonderful adam smith). no pressing plants, no music studio idiots. one song was recorded where we practice (in my garage) and the others in adam's house (with a skillful use of the kitchen, living room, and bathroom). we didn't quite know how to make the actual plastic tape…maybe if macguyver was in the band he could make them out of duct tape and dry leaves. this is only a shitty attempt at capturing the feel of the music. i can't really decide if it is worth going through all this trouble just to make a recording i'm not completely satisfied with. actually, i can't really find too many reasons for making the recordings in the first place…except to try to share what we feel…but i kind of doubt that we're unique and that people could actually get something from us that they couldn't get somewhere else. so basically, i don't know what the fuck i'm doing, but i'm trying to figure it out. impossible. jumbled and confused, this is a representation of us. maybe someone will get something out of this mess…
maybe we'll get to play the monsters of rock tour next year…
