The deepest secrets and drunkenest rantings from Australia's premier pop combo

Saturday, June 17

Day off. Phil McKellar prefers to spend his weekends with his two near-newborn twins. Apparently, compared to us, he prefers their mature conversation skills and superior toilet-training. Jets whipped Wests arses, 54-10.

So Tom and Gordy finished their basic tracks on Thursday night. 23:37 to be precise. And that included a time signature change and everything. Aren’t they just wonderful? So we all celebrated, although the Doctor went home, because the next day he had to start laying down the second guitar parts for all of the songs.

And that’s what happened. 22 out of the 27 songs now have all the guitars, bass and drums. This includes all rhythms bits, solos, pickslides, feedbacks and fingertapping. Yes, even a bit of fingertapping. Just a bit.

Here’s some pictures.

Some amp heads:

Some more amps and boxes:

Gordy, having finished the thing he’s second best at, begins doing what he’s best at:

So, now apparently people can post comments on this diary. Let me begin. We are crap. Please let commentary ensue...
Great to hear you boys are finally getting your shit together. I spoke to Jay last year in brisbane after a SRB gig and he said "album out by the end of the year".... well it seems like you were a bit off the mark with that timeline - but i suppose a new album is better late than never! When should we expect to hear about some tour dates??
Owww Gordy looks so sweet and peacefull. See thing is it took ages for my computer to load the pics, and all it said was Gordy begins doing what he’s best at, so me and my mate took bets on how much beer he was probably drinking lol. Nah you guys rock, keep up the good work. Much luv xxx
You guys are fags, John Howard is cool.
Hardcore. Are you tools playing with Pennywise when they come to Aus or too wussy? Good news on the new album, it better be tru punx rox! I know where you live if it's not...
So how come you guys aren't playing Taste of Emo?
long live sans souci...
