Happy New Year to all,

Here's all the latest in the world of me. I have finally completed all of the recording for my first solo record. It has taken longer than anticipated, but it usually does. I think it will be my most ambitious record thus far.

I have used instruments, and players that I have never used before which was a blast (Josh Freese, Jason Freese, Dizzy Reed, Richard Fortus, Dave Philips, Gersh, Juliette Beaven, and Joan Jones). I'm sure some will call it amongst other things - self indulgent, but when you pay to make a record out of your own pocket you are afforded the luxury of doing it as you please. Hence, I am very pleased. I am also very over it. For my next record, I may have to go old school and make a record in a week. Maybe one mike and some gaffer tape. It's just a thought.

Also in the last week I have sold this here new record thing to Sanctuary Records. Yippeeee!!!!!

It will come out world wide as well as your neighborhood some time in the near future. Aiming for summer/early fall, but many questions need be answered before I'll know for sure, and will update you when and how you might get some special treats through my site.

I may update the song bites to give you an idea of whats to come, but need to make sure this is cool with my new record company first. They are an awesome bunch of peeps, but I would hate to do something to piss them off so early in the process.

Also it may take another day or two but, Merch.com is going to be a link on my site to get t-shirts, etc. I have some t-shirts from my summer tour available in various sizes, and more things to come as the record gets released.

I think thats all I have to update ya'll on for now.

Thanks for listening,

T.S.

Yeah me!!! I started mixing today!!! Mr. Sean Beaven (Guns N' Roses, Marilyn Manson, NIN, No Doubt) is at the controls doing me the honors. With a little luck it should take about two weeks or so. Good thing too because I want to get on with it. Whatever it entails.

Went to three great shows this last week I thought worthy of props and cudo's. First, at Spaceland my least favorite venue was a band from Seattle called Visqueen. They rocked!!! Three piece punk/pop with an awesome lead singer. Best female singer/guitar player I've heard in forever. Check out their website by clicking on their name.

Again at Spaceland, Bobot Adrenaline. Yep, went back to Spaceland another night for more. They were fourth on a bill of mostly not so great bands. They sound like a mix of Clash, Buzzcocks, Costello, etc. Politics being the subject, they attack, ridicule all that fun stuff. Keep your ears and eyes peeled for them as it's sure to be an event you'll wish you hadn't missed.

Lastly, The Devics at Tangiers. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when they were done. Can't do them justice by trying to describe them except to say that it was very beautiful, emotional - similar to Geraldine Fibbers, Nick Cave, Mazzy Star, even a little Cocteau Twins. Completely killed me. That's all I got for now.

Give you updates as they come along. Maybe some photos from the mixing sessions.

It's done!! The album is finished! The mixing is finished! It is done!! I take off for New York tomorrow morning to meet with the record label and play them the album, then it's off to Bimini for a much needed rest.

We will be looking into setting up audio streams where you can listen to the tracks, but this all needs to be cleared by the label first. Be patient.
