After months of restoration we are starting to recover past albums for release. Check out our new GrooveShark page. We’ll be working to post all the whole discography in the next few months.
We were able to trickle about 20-40% of the data off of one damaged server. The other is most likely gone. Working on plan B. Been unable to find a reliable mixer or mastering tech. There have to be some folks out there who know what they are doing!
The releases of Leather, Sex, and Love; as well as the EPs for the singles Black n Blue Leather, and Sex Toy have been pulled due to mix and mastering issues.
Six out of eight hard drives in our Buffalo Tech file servers have failed. Much of the history and future releases were lost. Recovery costs are to high to contemplate.
Tonight at Nicks Lounge in Oakland CA, Kalib and Nevermynd will be performing a 30min Audio Terrorist Karaoke set. Show is 6:30-7pm.
Mixing on the Black n Blue Leather single, Sex Toy remix and the Leather, Sex, and Love album have been completed. Watch iTunes for releases in the coming weeks.
Last night’s show featured a rare performance of PEBKAC (Hymn of Drones). It was very well received. Glad we’ve added it.
Mastering on the Black n Blue Leather remixes ep haulted due to Jeremy getting an opportunity out of state. We hope to wrap work up this weekend. The track has been getting good reception at performances.
The Sex Toy remixes ep is getting close. Only the single edit and mastering audio to go. Then we will turn our attention back to the Leather, Sex, and Love album.
The best of album Exit will now be recorded live. The hope is this will mean a quicker release in 2014 and work can move forward on Afterburner.
Final note, PEBKEC from the Hypocondria ep has been added to our live set.
Down for two days, Audio Terrorist.com has been recovered.
New tracks from the forthcoming album “Afterburner” were performed at Nick Lounge over the weekend. The songs Do You Remember?, Lie Back (Give Me a Taste), and Afterburner showcased the new harder sound. The band was happy to hear folks yelling “Welcome to the Future!” out on the street.
Lee Presson of The Nails fame has been hired to mix the single of Black Leather.
Not satisfied with the mixes on L,S,&L. They are good but not quite where we want them. Halting production until June. Need time to listen and decide path forward.
A second engineer has been brought in to work on “L, S, & L”. Initial results are promising. We are learning there is no substitute for analog gear. Digital technology is simply not there yet when you want certain sonic results. We appreciate everyone’s patience.
In the meantime, we are working to re-release the original mixes from “Hybrid”, and the instrumental version “Dance”.
After several weeks of intense investigation we've worked out why the final mixes for the album are not coming out right. It is disheartening after all the hard work to continue being unable to release it. Ty and I we'll be taking another month to put all of our efforts towards the goal. We are so close...
The Hybrid re-releases are rapidly progressing. We decided to remix all the tracks to give them a contemporary sound. The project now includes a reissue of the original Hybrid, both original and remixed versions of the Dance album plus rare Hybrid tracks previously unreleased.
The third track from the re-release of Hybrid has hit YouTube: Black Leather
Due to production delays and studio enhancements, the re-release of Hybrid will be issued across the next three months as a series of EPs: Leather (Jan), Sex (Feb), and Love (Mar).
2003’s album Hybrid is set for re-release on the first week of December. This will include several videos by the artist Eric Wenger. Originally planned as a simple remaster project, it has grown and we’ve added some new vocals and guitar parts to the mixes.
The extra work work has pushed out the singles/remixes album Exit to dates concurrent with Afterburner and F-11. As a result we will repurpose Exit into a 30th anniversary best of release.
Halloween appearance at Nick’s Lounge to include performances of Night People and Slip Away.
1989’s compilation album Experimental Behaviour has been remastered and re-released. Work continues on remastereing Dance and Hybrid for a Xmas release on iTunes.
The band made a surprise appearance at the closing of a Berkeley institution, The Down Low
