“…amplifiers…”  –  Gabriel Fry, STPP

This fall, the leaves change and so does Nunchucks.

…cue Boyz II Men…

This autumn, NUNCHUCKS has shed a leaf and turned over a new one. We would like to say farewell and good luck to former bassist, Brandon Schnedl, and welcome the illustrious and legendary Joe Feinour (of Meta fame) to our new line-up as new bass master controller of NUNCHUCKS. We would like to thank Mr. Schnedl for his tireless dedication, steadfast contributions, and constructive and positive attitude in Nunchucks for the past years.

Mini retrospective and reflection on recording the Eat your moneys EP

Posted in Nunchucks Rants with tags , , , , , on August 30, 2011 by nunchucks

I just got done listening to preproduction tracks that Nunchucks did in preparation to record our Eat your moneys EP .  It was a nice trip down memory lane of a recording session that took FOREVER, at times seeming like we would actually NEVER finish.  It’s always interesting to see the progression of songs, how they evolve, the different parts that were written early in the writing process versus what was recorded, the changing or editing of lyrics and backing vocals/gang vocals, and the solos that John did on the demos/preproduction v. the final versions of the solos.

Recording Eat your moneys was an exausting, expensive, frustrating, yet very fulfilling process.  From the preproduction, to the tracking, to getting laid off and not knowing how I was going to pay for the recording, to Ampersand Sound needing to move operations 3 or 4 times, to starting as a full length LP and ending as a six-song EP, to getting Dan Long to mix and master it, and finally….being able to order and sell our debut album, Nunchucks and Ampersand Sound put blood, sweat, tears and a shit load of time into this product, and THANKFULLY, we finished and made a project that I believe everyone involved is proud of. 

The preproduction for next year’s record is already underway with new songs that we are all very excited about.  Some of these new songs are being recorded by John (lead guitar) on his reel-to-reel tape machines.  The recordings sound great so far. Stay tuned for postings of new song demos!

Last night’s show was AWESOME!!!

Thanks to everyone who came out last night! The place wasn’t SUPER packed, HOWEVER,  those who came out, came to squeeze the last bit of fun out of the fading weekend.  BIG thanks to everyone that was out there shakin’ a leg and gettin’ down and reminding us that NOT ALL D.C. audiences stand around and stare when upbeat, energetic rock&roll is being played (that is, without having to be remixed, mashed up, and regurgitated via some DJ).  What a fun, energetic, kickass show! 

To the guy that danced alone all nite until everyone joined him: you rule!  We need more of your kind!!!

Also to our one CD sale to the cute girls from Quebec, merci beaucoup et bon voyage!!!

This is one of our newest songs, Solid Gold Eagle, recorded at John’s (our lead guitarist) studio. 

Eddie Guerrero Electrico is also one of our newest tunes. It is currently an instrumental, but will have a version with lyrics as well. Here is the instrumental!

I’m starting to get re-obsessed with .gifs — maybe it’ll pass, maybe it won’t.  Check out the pages;  I’ve been doing some updating and what not. 

Our Eat your moneys EP is now available at our local record store
, so go buy one!

 

Not a WHOLE lot going on in Nunchuckland at the moment, though this is probably the calm before the storm.  We’re planning on being very busy this Fall 2011: scattered mini-tours, Pre-production of the next album, a music video, and NEW Nunchucks t-shirts.  It’s gonna be bizzzzzzzzzzzzzzy…
