New album for a New Year!

Well, Finishing up work for 2009 Vinz Clortho put the final vocal tracks down today and I have to say I will be proud to have my name as a participating member of this band! Every member is a genius in there own ways but this time there is no denying it! Try as you might there is no possible way your not going to be impressed with this album!
I have also asked an old dear friend, Leah Hocter from Columbus, Oh ,  to help me work up some designs. She is very talented and I am lucky to have such friends.  Timm wasn't as stocked about the first scetches to come back as I was but opinions are like assholes and we are kinda assholes :)
Leah is elaborating on one of the original sketches for me so i can make a very short run of Tshirts, and working on some new designs to try and get something more Timms speed for a Logo. He was afraid that using such direct imagery to the legendary crypto-zoological creature known as the Chupa Cabra would distract from the fact that we are a record label and not Bigfoot hunters. I personally thought it was rather fitting and Hilarious. To each his own i guess.   
The picture below was my favorite of the preliminary sketches.

 There were a couple other good ones but this one tickled my funny bone .

θέατρον "the seeing place"

Monday is the beginning of a new week and the start of a series of jobs I have ahead of me to get all my ducks in a row.
I try not to complain to much. No one really wants to hear it, but with a broken down car, a home in the middle of serious restorations during the coldest months of the year, the holiday season, a number of obligations with Chupa Cabra House has me feeling a bit thin, like butter that's been spread over to much bread. (in the timeless words of Bilbo Baggins)
Luckily I have this newest album to give me something positive to focus on. I am eager to get this new set on the stage. I know the album will be super duper to say the least but I am bursting at the seams to preform this one! Anyone who's ever seen the old 'Incredible Edible Eggheads', "Left Leg Limpin', or "The Short and Skinny" shows know that the live shows are powerhouse performances from the get go! "Timm Tayshun and The Sinns" is another good example of what we can do as a group. Timm wrote, recorded, and mastered an amazing couple solo albums and played some great live shows but when we all get together for the live show we start feeding off each others energy and the effect is impressive.
I am eager to get back in the recording booth and get the final parts of this Vinz Clortho album down so we can get it ready to distribute the final product. I feel it may also be time to get a torrent available of the old "Short and Skinny" stuff. Chupa Cabra House was a twinkle in our eyes at that time and we were reliant on the aid if a good friend to record it and we did it all in one day so the recording mastering is wanting but the overall album isnt bad. I would bring the vocals down a bit but Oh well, Whats done is done.

Tis the season to be writing

Vinz Clortho appears to be one the verge of an EP. I know I'm excited about it. Timm has even extended our deadline thanks to the madness of the holidays. I hope to be adding another available download to the list soon and then its full swing back into the solo. (assuming the powerful momentum of the VC doesn't sweep us all away and 4 song ep end up as a 4 disc album)
Stay tuned for more exciting news from the Chupa Cabra House!

Vinz Clortho is a serious task master!

I have to admit that working with VC is totally different than any other recording experience I've had. We started with Vinze Clortho's driving beats. Then Bluntsworth set down with Jim Dick and we started making up track names, song and album concepts, conceptualizing how we wanted the vocals to sound, writting chorus' and verses, and then we set out to record. A few short hours (and one trip to the vet to pick up my cat and back) later we had 2 songs FINISHED! On a 4 song ep I'd say we made considerable headway. I'm pretty proud of the little verse I wrote on my way to the Vet and back.
So look out world! The VC and BW album ft. JD will be coming your way soon. I expect this to be availible for download near the first of the year and will expect to see it on the upcoming Chupa Cabra House sampler CD.

Vinze Clortho is back!

It seemed for a while as if the new studio was going to be over ran with other projects and Vinze Clortho was going to be taking a back seat. From beyond all hope as Bluntsworth was sitting in the studio at the end of the day Friday we decided that the VC album needed to come next.
This coming week we plan on working as a group for at least a few hours a day to get the 3-4 part vocals written and ready to record.
I've been back in front of my turntables getting ready for this and am very excited. I also should have my solo EP ready for a digital release will be ready for download sooner than hoped. This will precede a full length solo album that will contain the best tracks from the EP and numerous others.
There has also been talk of a Chupa Cabra House sampler CD with a few tracks from each of the different Chupa Cabra House projects.
I find all this hopeful and am looking forward to seeing where this all goes.

Procrastination runs in my family.

Well, It's been a long time. I haven't been working nearly enough lately but I've began the turn around. Have a few new songs add to those to a couple previous tracks from the back log then I throw in a track that I did with old Left Leggers and I am trying to get a few tracks in with my step brother who was influential in my involvement with diy music.
I hope to have enough material worthy of the stage within the next couple months that I can start breaking it in for the recording of my premier solo album.
