Greetings, people of earth! It's been quite a while since I've been around these here parts, and I figured it was high time to drop by, say hello, and let you humans know what I've been up to. My band has been gearing up for live shows; we begin to attack culture December 9th in Concord, CA, at Bourbon St. Bar. I reckon that this should be sufficient notice for all of you to score your plane tickets to San Francisco. For those of you who don't want to shell out $400 to see us, you can check out www.thegreatbetrayal.com and/or www.myspace.com/greatbetrayal to hear some of our crappy songs. I believe there are plenty of good reasons to come out to see us: you can see my skinny ass fighting the Strangeberger, witness the RackofDoom, hear me making whale noises with my bass, or ogle the many scrumptious women that have promised to come. I've sold off almost all of my beloved Boogie amps, and invested the money in a real recording setup. I ditched my MBox and my laptop, and switched to Logic running on a fairly powerful Mac. For the first time I'm able to work on mixes beyond setting levels and panning stuff. I've been going through alot of old demos and reworking/remixing, which has been a real pain the the pancreas but has also been a good learning experience. So far I've only finished one tune so far, which can be downloaded here: www.benjaminstrange.net . Currently I'm reworking my cover of King Crimson's Discipline, which is also being remixed by former Nine Inch Nails engineer Brian Kraz. Hopefully I'll be able to release both simultaneously. After that, more progmetalindustrialemocore weirdness. That's pretty much it; not much goes on in my life but music. What's happening with you guys?
