    The Beatle's HELP! was recorded in 11 days.
    The Breeders' POD was recorded in 2 weeks.
    All of the Robert Johnson recordings were done in 3 days...



    At the same time that's a certain type of music, instrumentation, and arrangement, a type that facilitates that outcome. The same is true of The White Stripes and Nirvana. Rock and Folk/Blues formatted bands are more than capable of walking into a studio with some songs they worked out and banging them out in a few hours, as long as they practiced them enough.

      Most of the music for Elton John's *double* album "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" was written in 3 days, and recorded in 2 weeks.

          Nirvana's In Utero was also a two-week affair, also on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. i didn't know Pod was although it doesn't surprise me given the similar Albini production (love that album, btw).

          sounds like a great challenge!

            i heard eric burton and the animals showed up to a studio in the morning between train/busses. arrived in the morning and were done by 11am or something when they had to catch their next ride. thats including load in, mic'ing up, tear down *and* recording their entire debut album.

              i'll giv'err a shot

              liliththekitten i liek monthofsundays 0 and o1, especially when the drums come in and jewelbox tempo winar

              i read an interview with trent and atticus discussing the music behind the social network ost. they consider things moar like magazines now then novels that people actually sit down and read or just flip through.

              it will be fun to experiment and see what comes out. i had an two eps planned for winter one chill-out "bristol" stuff and a break core noize project. so far neither has materialized there's just been some 809 over piano and strings.


              thx! I really enjoy doing that project. it's not abandoned, just sort of on hold with a bunch more unfinished ideas, just those tracks are a bit more involved than I thought they'd be.

              do it! both sound promising.

                  P.S. You don't have to WRITE all of the music in February, although that is encouraged.
                  You just have to RECORD it all in February.

                    Just recording? But that's nothing. Gazillions of bands on a budget have done that before us.

                        Can I just record 35 minutes of an insane self-generating drone thingy on my modular, pass it through the grain delay in Live, and call it an album?

                          That only depends on what your name is. If it begins with "Brian" and ends with "Eno" you should be fine.

                            Nothing against Brian Eno, though. I love (most of) his stuff.

                              You could, and so could I, but I think the 'metal machine music' route might be a bit of a copout.

                              It's not much of a challenge if we all pretend we've fallen out with our record labels and are recording 45 minutes of sh*te to get off of the contract.

                                The white Casios are usually cool, from the early 80's. If you can find out the model # that would help! kinda poor right now but I'm tempted!


                                It's still there. Let me know if you want it as soon as you can so I can go get it before someone else buys it
