I guess you'll reach a point where you say, "F*ck it, I can get this one out then make a different one." I can't wait to hear it when you do.Originally posted by Bassomatic
I've been making the same record for years. I should really stop making it some day, but i keep reimagining it.
That point is now. Briefly considered jettisoning 3+ years of material, but realize it's gotta be warts and all, catching up to the present, so to speak (my sound and style has changed a lot).Originally posted by MichaelK

I had an original band that went pretty far in the mid-late 80's, the writing/producing process was such a hot/cold thing. One day I would walk out feeling as if the planets were all aligned, and the sun would shine forever, the next day, after a 2 hour argument about a GUITAR SOUND!!! I would just want to walk away, and do an acoustic solo thing. We are going through that now, the guys have been very open, and I have been trying to remember the feeling of allowing another person in my world, to change my music, so I have been really easy on them for now, but I feel there are a few things that are going to really push some buttons, and I am getting ready for them...Originally posted by LSchefman
I have a love-hate relationship with making records.
It took me two years to produce Patrick Thomas' record. We laughed, we cried, we agreed, we disagreed, but we made a good record, and we won some awards and recognition.
The artistic process, and the ways in which we challenged each other to do better, was what I'd call "gratifying torture."
But we're both really proud of the work.
