Panicakes and Serum (2006)

halloween-swim-team-panicakes-and-serum

Panicakes and Serum was recorded in late 2005-early 2006. The lineup was Jon Navarro (synth/vocals), Jon Grothman (drums) and myself (bass/guitar/vocals). Most of these songs were written as expansions upon some earlier demos that Navarro and I had recorded. Our friend Reni Tulsi recorded us for the bass, drums and synth at our practice space in downtown Pomona. I recorded the guitar and vocals and did the mixing at my uncle’s house in Reseda, where I was staying at the time. The CD was released at a show at the Smell on April 14th, 2006.

I think we burned about 25 copies of this album on CD-Rs. The mix was a bit rushed, in order to have the album finished in time for the release show. I basically finished mixing these songs and burned the CD-Rs on the day of the release. At the venue, we were literally gluing the packaging together and assembling the albums as they sold. The other guys in the band never had a chance to hear the final mix before the release. I remember Grothman wasn’t too happy with it after listening, and I never really felt it was finished either. We took a break from the band a few months after the release, and never got around to more mixing. When Navarro and I eventually got back to writing new tracks, we decided not to play these songs anymore.

Although there are still some things I’d like to change with the mix, I do enjoy listening to the album the way it is. Without trying to describe how it sounds too much, I find it has some really great moments and a janky vibe. -DK

BOWIE TRIBUTE TRACKLIST + TITLE Update

This is the 3rd tracklist I’ve seen in the last several months for the Bowie Tribute album coming out on Manimal Vinyl. But I’m pretty sure this is the final tracklist as I received it in an email directly from Sir Paul from Manimal himself. Before hand, I had only seen it appear on other various blogs and so, took their word for it. Anywhoo, We’re SO EXCITED to be a part of this tribute with so many other amazing artists and for someone whose music and words have been such a huge inspiration for us. The album drops on Sept 6th in the US/UK. Release party Sept 4th at E.P.I.C. (echo park in independent co-op).
