Here's what we did last Tuesday.

Last Tuesday, we started recording the Nadas tune "New Start" for an upcoming compilation to be released on Authentic Records. Here's John and Cory outside of "the Studio."

Yep, it's being recorded by Jonathan Natera, who recorded Wasted Love Songs. The space we're recording in is a new venue in Fairfield, Ia. The new Appleseed II studio is being built in the basement. Cory got Jonathan on camera for a bit. If you listen hard, you can hear some of our spin on the "New Start" groove.

I left before 10:00 that night (uh... because I have a JOB. hehe). I don't think the guys were there this late... They're crafty foolers, you know. In this video, you get to see and hear some of Jimmie's first recording with the band.

This Tuesday? Practice, practice, practice. We've got graduation parties coming up. Woo.

Peace out.

Last night, we played a few songs on the second-floor mezzanine of Principal Park before the Iowa Cubs played the Nashville Sounds. It was a damn good time. We were a full six-piece band, and we got to introduce our new guitar player, Jimmie, to a real audience.

This is a picture of Jimmie.

I asked Jimmie to write me a few words of introduction and about playing in the band, and he had this to say:

"My name is Jimmie Lee Dalton. I am the new electric guitar player for SsSs. I was a big fan before I got the chance to become a member. I love these guys and girl, and I am happy to be in the band and glad these guys have given me the chance to play with them. Troy asked me to write what it meant to me to be in the band, and I just have to say "WUBBA WUBBA." I love their music, and playing it is a dream come true for me. I can't wait to see all the people who love and cherish this band. I am looking forward to meeting all of you. Thanks, Jimmie Lee Dalton


Despite his taste in movies, we think we'll be keeping him around for a while.

Tonight, we head to Appleseed II in Fairyfield to record something tasty. Oh yeah.
