Today's sessions are with Chris Jay, former sound guy of Sublime. He put this wacky thing called a sub-kick on Dave's drum which catches frequencies lower than the human ear can detect. So the whales can rock out or something. My bass went through an Anthony DiMaria ADL 600 High Voltage Tube Amp with a fast attack so it comes out all smooth and thumpy. I recorded the bass track for Dirty South in the control room with Chris and five students watching and Dave and Trevor trying to get the van keys out of my pocket.
Chris does some booking at a place called Will's Pub. I think we're going to check it out on Friday. He told us a story about this stray hippie chick who tried to hitchhike across the country with three dudes and a kitten. The other three made it and the kitten ran off in Georgia, but the hippie chick is in New Mexico jail for "aggressive panhandling."

A recent memory. We were recording guitars and Jake clicked the talkback button and said "Hey Trevor, could you tell James to move the mic closer to the cone?" Trevor said "Who, what now?"
So Jake said "Tell that Emo kid to point the microphone at the speaker." Immediately Trevor turned to the emo kid and everyone in the control room exploded laughing. There followed a series of savage punchlines about Emo kids, with the penultimate "sister's pants" joke being topped by "His sister would have a hard time pulling off that bulge."
James came in the control room at that moment and said "Who's sister, what bulge?" and we exploded again. Chris said "Before you leave, you need to punch everyone in this room.
