Getting drums down requires a lot of energy on our parts. I mean we are just slaving away in here.
(The hollow click you hear at the end of the first hit is Steve getting hit in the forehead.)
We’re pretty sure Darren was working hard in the drum booth, but we’re not sure; we didn’t really pay attention. That’s not true, of course. Playing ping pong isn’t exactly slaving away.
Ok, in all seriousness, we’re actually working in here. The drums are sounding HUGE, and it really helps that Darren’s such a badass player. He’s beating the shit out of his drums and he’s making beat magic in here. We’re really excited for you to hear this stuff when it’s finished. Here’s a little snipperoo of Drayl recording a song called “Click Track.”
Can you feel us silently judging him from behind the camera? God, wait til I have to stand in the control room nailing guitar tracks with five people watching me from three feet away, hearing every errant string noise while I have the ‘I think I have to poop’ face frozen in place. Good times.
That’s enough for now. We’ll be in touch.
The Last Good Year
