Weed Needles Finished tracking 11 songs in a matter of 2 days. A band of working class men is what they are and work is what they did. There was no down time and what little rest there was, was found on the floor. All that aside, it was one of the most enjoyable experiences we've had. We are excited to hear the final cuts. We even got some help from Phillip Farris (Archbuilders/Cowards) on a few tracks.
Art by Rocky Gray. Full layout will be posted soon!Read More...
Here are some incredible pictures taken at a show a couple weeks back at JRs, one of our favorite bars. The show was a release party for a compilation of a wide range of local artists (including our Wasted Life brothers, Vessel) put together by Art Amiss.Read More...
Saturday afternoon Brock and I got to sit down and spend some time with our good friend and Wasted Life Records artist Tim Campbell. Generally, this is something that I like to do for my own sanity about once a week if possible. We are usually happy to sit on the porch and talk about whatever comes up. The last couple weeks have had a different agenda.
Recently after a long and focused study of blues and folk music, Tim started putting together some songs. I have been fortunate enough to get to serve as an objective opinion for things like arrangement and direction... but this the first time we sat down with a microphone and recorded some pre production demos for our own listening. The material on Tim's upcoming EP presents something simple and honest with a fair bit of wisdom in tow. We are all excited to release it, but I am most looking forward to getting the opportunity to help bring these songs to life.

Two weeks ago we bought a couple of pony kegs to make moonshine in. Shhh, don't tell. We then realized that the beer would have to be drunk. So our first thought was to have Auric come play in our kitchen. Next logical thought... call up the dudes at Brigade Boys and see what we can do to mix things up a little bit. They brought Cport and Young A through and we ended up having a hell of a fish fry.
First of all Adam from Auric might be one of the most photogenic musicians of all time, but I want everyone to look at the dude on the left of the above photo. This is our resident manchild Andrew. Take special notice of the camera in his hand. I think the best way to sum up this experience is to follow him through the photos of the night. Luckily, our dear friend Brandi (shootyouintheface) was also there to capture some of these moments. So... Here we go.
As you can probably tell by the thousand yard stare in the eyes of these fine young men, everybody is getting drunk quick and things are starting to get weird/good. Everyone in this photo will clearly wake up feeling like somebody dropped a cinder block on their head.
Now.... At some point Andrew put down the camera and decided to put the pedal to the metal.
We will catch back up with him later. Please keep in mind I have no actual idea of the chronological order of these photos, until we get down to the end.
Cport ABSOLUTELY killed it.
Young A is a true champion.
Lastly.... After he fell asleep in the neighbor's yard, our baby boy Andrew was rustled inside where evidently he decided to make camp for the night.
This young man woke up and went to work.
More kitchen shows soon.
