Just back from Russia -spending almost two weeks, sharing apartments with Russians and traveling deeper into the north I got to experience a very different side of Russia, I plan to write a more detailed blog over at the myspace site but in the meantime check this link for pictures and a story from my (not a master) drum class - once again the russian to English computer translation give some very funny interpretations.



While home the next few weeks I am working on tracks for one of Austin's more eclectic and outside young musicians John Pointercheck out John's 'make a CD with me' offer. Also doing more sonic work for the new Microsoft Vista OS, and even starting some Cock Robin rehearsals here in Austin later this week.


My next live show coming up will be the KTU North American debut May, 19 2006 at FIMAV Festival near Victoriaville, Quebec, Canada .

Followed by a May 27th warm up date for Cock Robin at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano California (more CR gigs start mid June in Europe).


Tunisia, Tuner, KTU

Pamelia Kurstin was in town for SXSW and once again I snatched her from the Barbez bus for another all-nighter recording more for our Tunisia project. In another strange case of synchronicity "A Night In Tunisia" was playing at the club we were at so we recorded a version of that: SXSW Night in Tunisia. Drums by Art Blakey RIP.

For more info on the amazing Pamelia check her new myspace page here:

Trail of Dead, ZeeGrass, TUNER

More work with "The Trail of the Dead" , another epic tune from Conrad and the gang. For this tune Producer Mike McCarthy, assisted by Munyon, had me on another strange bastard kit... Not unlike the kit I was just recording with at home for ZeeGrass... except ZeeGrass is gentle rockabilly brushing while Trail is slamming like Questlove meets Bonham.


It also seems like all roads lead to Russia these days. Trail is heading there in couple weeks, followed by Zee, followed by Tuner (with special guest SiRenée). I'll certainly be doing the Tuner dates and possibly some ZeeGrass dates but can only lend moral support for the Trailers.


Check out my new myspace page for tour dates and other nuggets.


ZeeRok on KUT, KTU, Azam Ali

Unrehearsed live radio show on KUT at noon on Weds Feb 22 with Zeerok, the wierd and wonderful Russian Altprogrockabillie singer songwriter.
