Following my last post I realized it was kind of stupid to publicly offer up 3 cassettes to the world at large. I have no idea how many people read this blog, but as I've found out, it's definitely more than 3. I actually got about 45 or so emails the next afternoon after my inomno-maniacal blogging, and more have filtered in. So, yeah, that was a dumb post! Sorry. Here, however, is an mp3 of Side A of the tape, for anyone interested who didn't get a copy. Side B is somewhere else on the blog, 2 long untitled jams under "Fred & Ryan" somewhere around March or April of 2002.

On New Year's Day of this year, me and Ryan met up and had a huge meeting about what we wanted to do with the band, what kind of sacrifices we were prepared to make, and how we could really push ourselves and our art forward if we decided we were ready to. We talked for a long time and then had a jam in his super-depressing one-room apartment as the year began in a cold, icy clamor. Thom Elliot over at Pleasuredome Tapez had asked me to do something for his label a week earlier, so I gave him the recording of our January 1st jam, as well as some stuff that we'd done in March of '08 before Ryan had joined City Center. The tape was called "Life Meeting", and it has finally reached reproduction as of last week. Thom made 23 copies, and gave me 5 of them. I have no idea how to get ahold of him, but if you're reading this then maybe you can find him on facebook or through my page if we're friends on there. If you really need a copy of this, I have three I can sell to the first takers. Drop me a line at westsideaudio at gmail dot com if you're into it. Oh, I also finished some work for another tape tonight, that will most likely drop a little sooner than it took for the red one above. More on that later. It's almost 7am and I'm still awake. Yikes.
