The record was cut!

Just sifting through the documentation now, but the record was cut, no major disasters, the weather was awesome, great turnout from friends and just people enjoying the day.... the bands were incredible, Animal Hospital's experimental dense layers of rel to reel and built up samples, Ashcan Orchestra's impressive anything goes percussion setup, bowed xylophones and welded metal gears, Tree Of Tenere's (members of Soccer Mom) instrumental rock and even getting Bobby from the Hussy to acoustic garage rock over the phone, that was a truly surreal moment in the lathe room.

Thanks to everyone that came out, and to Masterdisk, especially Alex DeTurk for working the lathe cutter. It's what I imagine Nasa missions were like. You're in a windowless room listening to audio, talking to people who may as well be a million miles away, placing mic's and adjusting levels, there's only one time to get this. You have one shot.

Really incredible job. Alex and James took the time out of a perfect Saturday to sit in there with us and try something hopefully totally new. We should have the audio rip of the disk us to preview at some point, and tons more pictures.
