The Root / Range On Castle

    "The Root"
    This song was written by me and a woman named Morgan Nagler. Her band, Whispertown 2000, opened for the Breeders. I am singing this and playing all the instruments. Morgan is singing harmony. We recorded this in LA in different places and I took it to Electrical Audio in Chicago and Greg Norman mixed it down. This song was recorded and mixed analog and mastered DMM.

    "Range On Castle"
    This song is also written by me and Morgan. Morgan takes the lead and sings this one. I sing the harmony. I play all the instruments except the drums. Lindsey Glover played the drums on this one. We recorded it in LA.
    Now we mixed this one to a CD and used the CD to make a 1/2" tape. Then we gave the 1/2" to Ryan at Sterling and he mastered DMM. Vaughan Oliver/v23 designed this cover.

    Are You Mine? / Wish I Was

      "Are You Mine?"
      I sang and play guitar. Lindsay Glover played drums and Armando Lopez is on Bass. We recorded this onto a Tascam 388. It's a 1/4" 8 track machine. What a bitch. It was always breaking down. We had to get Billy Zoom from the rock band, X, to fix the machine. We had like 4 of these 388 machines around the house. They sound great but they are "consumer grade" man. But I digress. I ended up transferring it to 2". Then I added a harmony vocal with Steve at Electrical and he mixed it down.

      "Wish I Was"
      I recorded everything on this one in a studio in LA. Kelley played one of the keyboards. Matt Ward (do you know who he is?) played the guitar that appears on the right side of the speakers and the solo in the pretty solo in the middle. I had some nice words but Kelley HATED my melody so I just put it out as an instrumental. Mixed by Albini at Electrical.

      All recorded analog and mastered DMM at Sterling by Ryan.
      This artwork was done by Vaughan Oliver/v23
      There is also an insert image glossy sheet that have the credits on it.

      Hot Shot / Likkle More

        Hot Shot:
        "I played electric guitars, bass guitar and vocals. Jose Medeles (a previous Breeders drummer) played drums. This was recorded at Type Foundry and with Steve at Electrical. And Greg Norman mixed it at Electrical, in Chicago.

        All recorded in the analog domain. All mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in NYC using Direct Metal Mastering.
        I played the guitars and vocals and Steve Kille (Dead Meadow) recorded it for me in the cellar of the house I was renting out in Los Angeles. It was recorded on my Tascam 1/2" - 16 track machine. Likkle More is "see you later" in patois, btw. Likkle More:

        This was mixed by Greg Norman at Electrical in Chicago. All analog, all mastered DMM.

        Artwork by Chris Bigg using photograph by Ed Deal, 1958, of Fred Deal (Kim's other grandaddy), Chief Deputy of Wyoming County, West Virginia Sheriff's Office.

        The 7" package has an insert. It's a glossy print card that has a picture of my crazy face. It looks like a Polaroid. Because it was a Polaroid of me. And we made copies of the Polaroid and we stick them into each record. And I sign some of them"...

        Walking With A Killer / Dirty Hessians

          "Walking With A Killer"
          Recorded with Lindsay Glover on drums, Jeff Cairns on the creepy moaning guitar panned left, Dan Elkan on the lead guitar panned right. I played the other stuff…bass guitar, rhythm guitar, crazy lead section. Carrie Bradley who played on Pod and Last Splash is playing violin. We recorded this in Los Angeles at 5 Star Studio with Bryce Gonzales. Then I took the 2" tape to Steve Albini and he mixed it for me at his place in Chicago at Electrical Audio. I went up to Sterling Sound in NYC and mastered it with Ryan Smith. The lacquer was cut using analog playback to vinyl master. So this track stayed in the dimension of time, baby. And that's why I put that little guitar thing-y with the words Recorded All Wave. I am a geek.

          "Dirty Hessians"
          I recorded everything on this at Type Foundry in Portland. Recorded in the analogue domain. This was also mixed by Steve in Chicago with me and then mastered from analog tape using Direct Metal Mastering. The artwork was done by Chris Biggs and features a photograph of Kim's grandaddy on a mantrip working a mine near Bluefield, West, by God, Virginia, 1945.
