The Fortieth Day - Status

Isidro and I had another very fruitful session last night, really taking our time arriving at jet engine volume level. But, my ears are ringing this morning... proof that we did arrive there. As usual, Isidro focused on bass and rhythms, and I stuck to Korg Monotron through a shitload of pedals. We dedicated last night to the gods of ProCo, worshiping the RAT, and during its functional moments, the TurboRAT. I will be reviewing the recording later, after more espresso and after "Heroes" plays for the eight-zillionth time (yes, I finally broke the Stones' grip on me... the new Interpol album helped that). This week, we intend to finalize mastering and art/design for the next full-length CD by The Fortieth Day - and - our associate in Milano, Sig. P.NG5361.B of Sshe Retina Stimulants and Sigillum S, is reviewing the recording of our WLUW radio session from November 2009, and we are discussing his availability for SRS Desktop processing for said recording. Discussions continue with Lisa (AKA Noise Crush) regarding a sound+vision release for our full, collaborative mode. Speaking of which, it is rather surprising to see just how few shows this band has actually played, particularly considering, from mid-2005 forward, how frequently we have actually gathered to play, practice, record, whathaveyou...
