Yes this is our drummer John, with his signature glasses, vest, and soul-patch, as a cartoon pig. Thanks to our good friend Kirstin for doodling this even though she got in trouble at work.
The Long Holidays have remained pretty busy lately working on recording projects for others, and indirectly... you. Hello the Future (aka Nicole) has hired us to be the backing band on her full length album, Giant Robot Album. So far it's been cool trying out different ways to play, and getting into the head of a song-writer with a different style. Personally I feel like I've learned a few new tricks (aka chord changes). It's really pushed everyone in the band musically, except for John. You can't improve on perfection.
We've also had the pleasure of working at Sunburst Studios in Culver City. Imagine recording in your crazy grandpa's den in the 70's. And your Grandpa has incredible microphones, spaces to put your amp, and a grand piano. Here are a few pictures originally taken on microfilm with Jim's spy-cam, then transferred to digital.
To our friends and supporters,
We were many of these things this year: Whiskey Promoters, Suburban Legends openers, Bar Pico residents, Birthday Celebrators, Gary Oldman in 5th Element Fans, and it was all thanks to you. Our friends give us the drive and the stories that we need to keep doing the things that we do best. Toast twice tonight to ring in the New Year and ring out the last.
