Wanted to share my new Black Sugar Transmission album, The Glamour Pantomime, with y'all: The Glamour Pantomime | Black Sugar Transmission
A word about gear: I used my new custom guitar, a healthy dose of Eventide Pitchfactor and both the Ultra and AFX2 on it.
AKG C3000B condenser mic for vox
Toontrack for programmed drums
Various synth VSTs.
Recorded in Cubase.
I feel I should add a disclaimer: this is NOT a shred guitar project! It's more of an edgy electronic pop thing (somewhere between Bowie, The Cure, NIN and Prince) and guitars are only used when the song calls!
also want to mention some of the insanely talented musos who added their DNA to the album:
Timo Ellis (The Netherlands, Sean Lennon, Cibo Matto, Spacehog) - live drum parts
Matt Farley (BST, BULLY, Brother Lover) - live drums
Leon Gruenbaum (Vernon Reid, James Blood Ulmer, Genes & Machines) - Samchillian Tip Tip Tip Cheee Peeee
Jimmy Lopez (Oz Noy, DJ Spooky, Gypsy Kings, my next door neighbor) - voodoo percussion, theramin
Dave Smith (Every Empire, etc etc) - fretless bass
these guys are ALL badasses!
Enjoy and thanks for listening!
Cool, man, I'll try to check it out when I get home from work. You do some pretty warped shit, so bare minimum it's worth the time to check out.
