We all piled into Dave Rowe’s little studio in Raymond on Saturday, and continued recording our half of a kid-themed record we’re making with The Squid Jiggers. It went really well, despite the close quarters and the ample supply of Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy on hand. (Hey, it’s February, after all.) Our rehearsal time really showed its worth. Plus, Dave knows just what knobs to twist, and when. We’ll be back at it next week. Then, we’ll probably be done with our half of the record.
We’ll keep you all updated and post some samples, soon.

The Half Moon Jug Band is in Dave Rowe’s studio this month, working on a joint album with The Squid Jiggers. It’s a kid-themed record featuring a song written and sung by a real, live kid. Ben Petruk, son of Mike the Drummer, laid his song down in just one-and-a-half takes, Saturday.
