Ooh La La


hey folks

well, i played a benefit for my good friend scott harding, who was paralyzed in a drunk driving accident. the perps got away with it. scott took it all in stride. he is now back in action, and we raised money for him to get a much better wheelchair. new york city isn’t very wheelchair friendly.

i did a ctd set as well as a set with my new project, satsang circus. cypress mangaged to get her friends to do a 2 camera shoot – one fixed, one moving. it will be edited soon and posted on youtube.

i bought a very nice hand held sony recorder and have been recording recent shows. they don’t sound great, but they are not bad for bootlegs. i may have them mastered and released for a nominal fee, if there was any interest.

tomorrow and friday i finish my vocals on the new ctd’s record, ooh la la. then we can master it and get the damn thing out there! and i’m nearly done mastering Satsang Circus, so that is in the offing soon as well.

hope this finds you guys happy and well.

oh, and dan roberts had another boy. james. he already looks like a killer, of which i’m proud.

all for now

Hi folks,

It’s been a while since I’ve been online, but here I am. I’m doing a benefit for Scott Harding, a good friend who was paralyzed in a car accident.

The gig is at the Living Room, 154 Ludlow, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. July 19th at 7pm, tix 25 bucks. There will be 5 or 6 great sets by some great artists.

I will also be doing a set with my new project, “Satsang Circus”, which you can hear a myspace.com/satsangcircus. I have made a chant record, but with western flavors. It will be available for purchase soon.

I’m also putting the final vocal touches on the new Crash Test Dummies record this week. I have enough material to release two albums per year for the next two years. So, after a long drought, I’m back.

The album will likely only be available as a download. I simply can’t afford the manufacturing and distribution of hard copy. However, I might try and do a deal with DOD at amazon.com, so there is hope.

And for those of you who love CD’s so much, get over it!  :)  There will be no CD’s or record stores by 2015. That’s my own prediction.

Hope this finds you all well.

Best

Brad
