CD Recording [14 Aug 2005|12:29pm]

[ mood | lazy ]

Well... I'm sure most of you who are on our buddy list know that we're recording a Full Length CD. It's coming along awesome and it sounds so much better than I ever thought we could/should sound. I'm so glad that Razmig directed us to Morgan and Burns cuz they are lifesavers when it comes to recording this CD. But anyways, at the moment everything is completed except for Matt's vocals, George's vocals (heh heh), and a few touch-up tracks that I or other people must do. Then comes mixing and by the end of this summer we will have ourselves a fully mixed CD. Then the problem remains of earning enough money to pay for mastering and replicating the CDs but we're making good progress in that department as well. We also need to get our Cover/Booklet/General art design from Vivian and if anyone else wants to help out in anyway, please let me know! We're going with a Simpsons theme (as in the cover is going to be us but drawn in a Simpsons fashion... no yellow skin though, we don't want to be too much of copyright pirates) so if anyone has ideas, I'd love to hear them. Below is the tracklist of the CD (subject to change)

1. El Rio de Carlos
2. Mr. Penguin
3. A Lullaby
4. Song Number Cool
5. Another Boring Day
6. Rivendell
7. Stars and Moons
8. Ah!!! (It's Godzilla)
9. Ocean Song
10. the Simple Life
11. The Lando System
12. W.I.L.


9/23- The Boys and Girls Club at 7 PM, $5 admission
w/ ENDWAY!, Exit 21 and Waltham
9/24- Faire on the Square
w/ Jimmy Dickerson?

Hello all! Hope you're all having a good October/fall/day/whatever measurement of time you like the most! So hmm, I figured I'd update on the state of Syzlakia. Let's see, Matt Pat and I went to Worcester for a meeting for a Battle of the Bands at the Palladium, however we're not sure we're going to play it due to the requirement of selling 30 tickets to play. There are two problems with that 1. It's in Worcester and all our fans are in the Greater Boston area and 2. It cost $15 per ticket, which is good for two days worth of bands but... I don't really like the guy in charge, he's making so much money off of exploiting little local bands like us. But anyways, besides that, we've been taking a break from practices since the ill-fated Wellesley show, but I'm sure in the next couple of weeks we'll get back on track. We've been approached with an offer to play a show in Watertown in November but we're not sure about that either as we want to take a break from playing in Watertown until SyzFest 05. We're learning a few new covers just for fun which are...

Geek U.S.A.- The Smashing Pumpkins
Hummer- The Smashing Pumpkins
All Along the Watchtower- Jimi Hendrix
Reptilia- The Strokes

OH! And other miscellanous news, all the Syzlaks are taken so you can't touch us, ladies (unless of course, you happen to be our ladies then you can touch us.. but everyone else, HANDS OFF!)

We also may play a show in Arlington with Anarchronism, which would be fun.

That is all, and again I hope you're all well.

A Syzlaks LJ? My dreams have come true...(drools, faints, breaks into a chorus of Luigi's Lament).

Second post!

Yeah...so Faire On The Square was nice! Good thing I got you guys to play or that Faire would have been boring! They definitely need to get rid of those shitty acts on the second stage for next year so we can have Watertown bands there. I shall suggest that to them. I mean who wants to watch Susan Wright dancers at the Faire? And who wants to see square dancing? Those people don't need to come back. They were pointless, they were taking up good space and time! The Syzlaks definitely have to play next year!

I really like that song "Train". I forget how it goes, but it's good to clap to!

So yeah....go Syzlaks!
