..."pretty soon everyone will have every recording ever made" --Pat, in a discussion about new mp3 players with huge hard drives

...more recording today. The guys ran through a brand new jamb multiple times today, trying a lot of directions with a decidedly non-conventional song style for the weez, that somehow reminded me of 70's smokey rock and the Smiths all at the same time. Then they did about 5 tries of a new (but not brand spankin new) song, before Pat did a major switch up in the drum stylings, which suddenly got everyone stoked on the song all over again...(especially me, because this one is definitely one of my faves!)...and several more takes were immediately recorded with the new feel.

...more Maladroit action!
