I guess the first bit of news is that this site is up and running.
Second bit is that, strangely, I made it onto the 2005 Downbeat Critics Poll list under Electric Bass Rising Star. You can see me in print with the rest of the folks here.
Third, editing and mixing for my next CD are done. Pretty happy with it. The band is Stigtette and the disc's title will be "Delta." I'm pretty happy with the tunes. One interesting thing about the disc is no drummer, any percussion-like stuff on the disc is prepared bass. Look for a release on pfMENTUM in October 2005.

Added the beginning of a page on prepared bass - - what's that? Well the beginning of the answer is here (not complete by any means).

Booked time for the next Mentones recording. I'm hoping it will be out in the spring of 2006 (or thereabouts).
We'll be doing some dates around the disc's release, see the Calendar page for those and other upcoming dates in October and November.
Added an audio files page so you can find audio in one convenient place.
Also, I updated some of the pictures pages a while back . . . split things into sizes that are hopefully more easily loaded. Go to the main pictures page to access different pictures pages.
