upcoming recording

i have started sketching out some stuff for upcoming recording, a bunch of you have asked about whats happening, the last bunch of records had me writing primarily on machines and i’m determined to go into the next period writing on guitar, with a more primitive approach… we have discussed that the next thing should be more ‘raw’ or whatever, i still am endlessly frustrated by the US music scene, what rises to the surface, that by now the fifties to the nineties are represented by the same handful of ‘classic’ songs played over and over again… a lot of people are asking about us touring in the states this year, thus far nothing is on the books but we will figure it out hopefully…
