I started reading the Ian Svenonius (AKA the Sassiest Boy in America) book I bought this weekend. It starts with an interview with Brian Jones via seance, with his insights about turning your band into a cult, and it is RIGHT up my alley! I would place this book in the same category as Rock and The Pop Narcotic by Joe Carducci.
I was listening to Bry Webb’s record from last year in the living room while I was reading.
I spent the afternoon in my backyard building this baffle, 2 panels framed with 2×4’s, faced with 3/4″ plywood on one side, filled with insulation, faced on the backside with heavy cardboard and covered on both sides with a mexican blanket. The 2 panels are connected with a piano hinge, which I covered with gaff tape on both sides to minimize sound leakage through the (almost non-existent) gap between the 2 panels.
Starting tomorrow, I’ll be at Parts & Labour the next 4 nights.
