Details on this one to come. That’s all I got for now.
In the midst of all this live rock action, we are recording our first, proper LP. It’s rather exciting.
A world tour of New England is sure to follow.
So, um, see you all on Friday?
Friday’s show at The Factory turned into a Headhat promo-fest. Tom, Dan, and I performed as a Tuna Fish Discrepancy/Wettron hybrid performing songs from Old Haunts and the new Wettron E.P. That Means You, Todd. Click on the blue words to download these releases for FREE! You can also find releases from the LeVautour Ensemble and Adhesiveslipper, and new noise to put in your ears every week. Download. Donate (if you’re cool like that). Tell your friends. Tell your mom.
p.s. Be sure to check out The Attic Bits. Those guys are super cool and make crazy music.
Tuna Fish Discrepancy has more videos than albums. Crazy. Todd Lajoie directed videos for “Mortimer the Dentist” and “Pericles” while Jim Baclagon directed “Vampires”. We’re busy working on balancing out the audio/synchronization discrepancy – a live album is very close to completion, another live recording from October 9th is just about ready, and, of course, a full band studio release is on the horizon.
In the meantime you can check out Webhat where you can find the last pre-band TFD release Old Haunts. Most of the songs are rather old, and some of the songs will sound like they were recorded by a teenager. They were. Some songs are newer, such as the title track, there’s an insincere love song on there, and a reworking of “We Are All Filled With The Bloodjuice”, reflect a more mature approach to the recording process. Dan ADHESIVESLIPPER McDermott pieced the songs into a cohesive album, even fitting the low-fi ballad “Mortimer the Dentist” nicely into place.
Last up on the to-do list, I will be performing at The Jam Factory’s first step into experimental music, Pastiche with the LeVautour Ensemble and The Attic Bits. It is going to be a night to remember.
P.S. Here’s the “Vampires” video by Jim Baclagon. Thanks, Jim!
On Saturday, the Tuna Fish Discrepancy and Bernard LeVautour performed a brutally enjoyable show, starting with a set of slightly to heavily deconstructed TFD tunes and ending with a noise jam that dared audience members to stay to the end. Oh, and we filmed the whole thing. Not well, of course, who do you think we are, Phil McCartney? Sheesh!
Here are the first three songs from the show. If you can get into the single-camera, poor lighting, sketchy audio for two hours sort of thing then you’ll definitely be excited to know that the entire show will be available on DVD and digital download! How about that, eh? All right, here are some clips:
Zombies Were People Too
Kill Me Again
This show is shaping up to be epically weird. Our bass player is unable to make the gig, so I thought we would just do an acoustic set. Then I had a few drinks with a friend and we discussed some alternatives. Such as an abstract DJ rig. I shouldn’t say anything more just yet, but I’m very excited about this show.
Wait, wait, wait… what’s a Jam Factory?
“The Jam Factory is the music room next to Raxx’s Billiards in downtown Manchester, NH – right next to Bridge street! We have FREE wi-fi access!”
Wow, that’s awesome! So you can support your local music scene, have a beer, AND update your favorite social networking site at the same time?!
This show keeps getting better and better.
