âduetsâ by rob lynch and friends
hereâs what I remember: unfortunate mic placement. levels that got way out of hand. lots of laughs. maybe a broken glass or two if mike morrissey was around. trying out instruments we donât play. bike riding and basketball, even at 20 degrees. sleepovers with horrendous blankets (ali pie). working without the critic. sometimes battling heartacheâ¦
i love the duets.
1 âbody partyâ (zito/lynch)
jim zito on guitar, one note at a time.
i played brushes. we both âsangâ, on the floor, in the basement. chris cosgrave came over and chimed in...home for xmas. jug of peanut butter pretzels. chris foreman said we should have added âjoin my partyââ¦
2 âthe town itâs said i come fromâ (lynch)
i wrote this jackass lyric after reading âthe grapes of wrathâ in the tub.
i played the whole lotâ¦listen for the one note trumpet, pressed against a bass drum for reverb!
rex sings like a champ, even when heâs joking. thatâs him yelling nonsense down my hallway during the b section. vocals were recorded just before he left us buffalo folkâ¦
i remember a good ârelationshipsâ talk. miss ya buddy.
3 âiâll see you at homeâ (zito/lynch)
nothing is more fun than making up songs with jim. i love that out of tune âreggaeâ piano he played. my bass part, on my newly acquired ventura, was a direct result of too much lee perry box set. jim and i both played drumsâ¦two tracks. danelectro guitar i bought from charlie quill. jim wrote the lyrics. i like â you dress real nice, iâve got tailors tooâ. it turns creepy at the end! again with the dictaphone mic, the floor and the whisper.
4 âchrist, iâll never fall in love againâ (lynch)
christ was added as not to receive a phone call from bacharachâs people. morrie played bass, but we miked it poorly (of course) and its tough to hear. he played the organ tooâ¦we screamed the background vocals as loud as possible. still, that doesnât hurt as much as the high end from the constant cymbals and shaker! âcaptian nemo with no medical suppliesâ. a little break up song i wrote for morrie when things werenât lookin good.
5 âwe are super happyâ (hobart/lynch)
rex came up with this riff sitting on the edge of my bed, with a huge boom mic making it hard to move. most positive. the âmack truckâ (as jim whitford called it) in the middle is the result of a new compressor i bought for 20 bucks, a kingston guitar i bought for 50 bucks and a parade drum morrie gave me.
6 âthe breakerâ (rozler/lynch)
when jo jo rozler comes up to the falls for a summer bike ride up and down the gorge, its constant music jokes, gig stories and sound experiments with doppler effects and flangers. somehow, we save time to talk about the important stuff, like the âgary lewis styleâ of strident triplets. joe came into the basement, still in workout mode from the ride and played this piano track on the spot, to the sweet sound of the thomas organâs drum machine. he was then off to gig and i finished up with a super loud floor tom.
7 âopen houseâ (cannon/lynch)
chris came over and gave me some bare acoustic guitar tracks to drum along to, for his new album. i liked this one and decided to work over it, some mental offshoot of my drive to yale with grad school intentions.
8 âthe boring batherâ (zito/lynch)
technology! i worked on this in some airport, waiting for a connection to raleigh to visit jim. we liked the background hiss and played it up. suezanne suggested the bath noises, which i gladly added. we came up with the melody while waiting in an unbelievable traffic jam. later on https://www.tradebit.com we read it involved a band on the road and a tragic death. still whispering, but now into a laptop.
9 âpoolside and machoâ (hanley/lynch)
bob came over with this great âbeck-likeâ bass line. we slowed it down and i added the âbottom of the poolâ bigsby guitar on my new 135. lots of blue light, lots of amusement.
the shaker at the end is lee perry influenced, again, and too loud on purpose. notice the out of tune guitar lead just before the end of the tune, left over from a previous take.
10 âtrick or treating aloneâ (bocek/lynch)
sue can come up with a strange tune at the drop of a hat. but when the red light was on, it took a little longer! this was our second tune of the night, recorded in between door knocks from ghosts and goblins. dr. pepper, absolut pepper and full of chocolate bars minis.
11 âyou wanted a friendâ (pipitone/lynch)
somehow, it took mike meldrum to tell me that we had ripped off âsloop john bâ! ali played my old parlor guitar called âmy buddyââ¦now lost. it took me 2.000 takes, which explains the conversation at the top. mike morrissey came by at night with cantaloupe and played bass. ali stayed over in the spare room beneath a blanket make of the worldâs least comfortable fibers. and it had a poorly drawn tiger on it.
12 âno gig for meldrumâ (morrissey/lynch)
true story! a happy hour gig with meldrum, called off last minute by the national weather service. morrie on bass and organ, me on drums, creepy vocal and guitar.
13 âthe great warâ (meldrum)
recorded on mikeâs beautiful buffalo porch on a windy summer afternoon. you can hear the cars drive by. i love the punk kids that yelled âwhooooâ when they heard us playing. perfect timing. perfect song. meldrumâs graceful honesty. i tried to play mikeâs mandolin as he sang, played harp and his great old gibsmart. i took it home and added the trem guitar, guitar âbassâ and harmony. i adore this tune. a great memory too.
14 âwhen beckham came to hollywoodâ (zito/lynch)
tabloid time! did you hear? beckham and cruise made buddies! wow! the grunting is some mutation of david brentâs mannerisms from âthe officeâ.
15 âevergreens and honeybeesâ (morrissey)
a nice song from mike. he played acoustic, great bass and sang. i added a bunch of layers because i wanted to try out doug yeomans red epiphone with the bigsbyâ¦which explains the âpedal steelâ type stuffâ¦feedback + bigsby = my happiness.
16 âenormous heroâ (autobahn)
jonathan hughes, kent weber and i performed as autobahn as part of the irving klaws halloween party at the mohawk place. jonathan, of course, came up with the amazing track, and i added vocoder, ridiculous deep voice and ridiculous lyrics. âmakes usâ¦â
