The Porn Watchers Union!

The rehearsal was awesome. Our output:

1. Theme song – an instrumental. About 1:20 long, if I remember correctly. You can hear some talking in the background at one point near the end (probably Ross’ brother who engineered this one), and I do a Brad Nowell-esque “Rah!” at the end.
2. People With Oversized Sunglasses should be Turned Into Flies – The classic track. I got to play guitar on this one, which was cool. The vocals were only double-tracked, but it’s still really cool. You should have been there, I almost blew a speaker and I woke up Ross’ dad who was recovering from hernia surgery. Must have been hella loud if it carried up the basement (with the door closed) and another flight of stairs. This one was 1:25, at most.
3. Tha Freestyle – My satirical rap. We used the drum machine and double-tracked in parts. This was done in the midst of a lot of deciding what we’d record next, and I thought we should just lay this one down quickly. Also hovers around a minute in length.
4. Trees Give Me Wood – The first of two “tree-love” songs. We didn’t bother putting bass on it. The longest song on the demo, at 2:17.
5. Dendrophiliac – The second. Ross laid it down solo, and when the time came for me to overdub drums, I couldn’t do it because he was so out of the pocket. Whatever, it’s a solo track now. 2:03?
6. Untitled – A minute-and-a-half instrumental. It was going to be a three-chord punk song called “I Don’t Care About Famous People” but a combination of its awesomeness and the fact that it came out a little slower than I had expected made us leave it an instrumental. Also, you can kind of hear me saying something at the beginning. Considering that Ross was calling loudly for a drum solo, I’m glad it didn’t pick up.

UPDATE 11/19: At some point during the last two weeks, we renamed #6 “Insulin”. Don’t laugh at us.

Dad came to pick me up, and as far as I know the only post-production is going to be a buzz-drone added to “People with Oversized…”

I’ll post download links once Ross puts the songs up.
