Okay. This first blog comes at the end of a ramon speed bumrush. Have titled this spot "Unread era edicts," and can offer little explanation save for the fact that you can fairly break up ramon speed music into two era; to wit: 1) Sing, Eunuchs! 1994-1996 and 2) Unread 2008-present. Here is what's been going on.
Kevin and I played at the Reptile Palace on 9.17 culminating about 4 weeks of rehearsal of new material. First new stuff since recording the Effulgence and Alacrity - ep. Also, first time performing as a two-piece since playing with Chris Deden in May of 2008 at Jesse Joyner's house. It went well. Still have some kinks to work out. Most of these involve electrics and Jeff Benske is presently helping me iron these out. Also immersed in re-mixing 1995's double cassette Godspeed, originally on Sing, Eunuch's. Will be released as a triple with a third tape with outtakes, comp appearances and rarities (no pun). Also, recording final vocals and guitars to 6 song piece recorded with Wooden Horses for upcoming release (hopefully) on Unread, perhaps as a split (crossing my fingers that it will be with Snowstorm or KOTAA). Then Kevin and I are going to set to recording the new material for a full length. This would ideally have a 2011 release date. That's about it right now. Please come back and see what we're up to.
