11:24 - I like to know who works on the albums of bands that I like. And sharing information with friends is not name-dropping. Is it really that big of a deal? I saw that myspace bulletin. And so did you? Why are you on their list if they bug you so much?

1:10 PM

And most people don\'t even know who the hell Bob Westin is! Since I do know who he is, it only makes me more excited to hear their new shit. You just don\'t like the band.

who cares, steve albini or bob westin can\'t make you sound better than a what you are. if you got the $$$ they\'ll record your farts and master them. i personally don\'t care who records or masters records. i do however care what is on the record.

1:26 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

sorry, but listing a mastering credit just because it\'s a micro-celebrity IS a stretch. congratulations for knowing who bob \"westin\" is. i have liked this band and still want to, but this obvious attention grab is troubling and disappointing.

getting john congleton to mix an albini recording is like having Thomas Kinkade \"touch up\" a Rothko or Schiele.

Jeez. Prickly bunch. At least you just saved yourself the trouble of spending money on the album. I don\'t think it\'s that big of a deal. Especially since it\'s not all over their myspace or website. You are talking about one myspace bulletin right? I saw it. Wasn\'t that big of a deal. Those are some damn fine ethics you got there, Lou.

Troubling and disappointing. IRAQ is troubling and disappointing. You are talking about your opinion about a myspace bulletin.

I\'m sure I\'ll still get the album. just baffled at some shit lately.

It\'s a good album. I don\'t think it is such a big deal to \"grab for attention\" when you have a new album coming out that you are excited about. I got to hear it, and obviously they\'re friends of mine so I felt like defending them. They work hard, and are nice people. I think you might be reading too much into it. And your comment at 1:35 leads me to believe that maybe it doesn\'t bug you as much as you think it does. :) And, now that you have me thing about it, I know for a fact that when that poker website blurb got around, they were really excited and proud but didn\'t attempt to capitalize on it. Can\'t we all just get along on MLK day? Let\'s hug it out.

God forbid someone tries to promote their own music by listing a reason to check it out. Sure, maybe not every project Albini has been involved with has been great, but his recordings are always solid.

If that doesn\'t do it for you, check out that new song on the WSJR compilation or go see them live. The new songs are beyond what they had done in the past. Live and on that recording, you can tell they worked their asses off, because their playing is super tight now.

The problem with a lot of younger bands is they don\'t give a shit about how they record. I hear a lot of great bands around here that schlock some shit together on a 4 track and call it gold. Would a record from a band like Jesus Lizard be the same if they recorded more lo fi? I think not. Lo fi works for some stuff, but I think a band like Record Hop is better off with a good engineer behind the board. It really does make a differance. If some of you kiddos actually still believed in buying records you might actually notice a differance.

Bob Weston is one hell of a mastering engineer. Does everything have to be name drop with you numbskulls. Back in the old days we old foggies went to these strange places called record stores where we would actually look at the liner notes to find out such information. In a digital age of downloaded music it seems the whole concept of liner notes is kind of going the way of the dodo bird.

Do It Yourself(DIY) does not mean do it yourself and make sure it sounds cheap and amateurish.

BTW- Lou Reed was sucking my cock last night. How is that for a namedrop.

Bottom line. I don\'t give a shit how or who recorded your record. I just want to hear your record. And if it is good, it is good. How long does it take for 5 rockstars to put out a single record. I\'d sure hate to see how long it takes\'m to change a light bulb.

I think it\'s dumb that it\'s a big deal that weston or albini etc. good for them. Just put the damn thing out already!

2:30. The album is coming out in March. Can you wait two more months to have something else to bitch about? Because as SOON as you hear it, you\'ll run to the computer to let everyone know how let down by it you feel. How you would have done it better. How it doesn\'t matter who recorded it or wrapped it in plastic, it just is a huge let down.

I don't have to ask them because I don't care just as much as I don't care who mastered/recorded it, nor do I think it is that big a deal that they are "Namedropping" it. Though if they really did namedrop those guys on something bigger than myspace etc it would be pretty ridiculous.

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down a road and back again
Your heart is true, you\'re a pal and a confidant

I\'m not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won\'t you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

If it\'s a car you lack
I\'d surely buy you a Cadillac
Whatever you need any time of the day or night

I\'m not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won\'t you stand up and take a bow

And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
Have no fear even though it\'s hard to hear
I will stand real close and say
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

And when we die
And float away
Into the night
The milky way
You\'ll hear me call
As we ascend
I\'ll say your name
Then once again

Thank you for being a friend

I heard the Record Hop album a few months ago and it was good. I\'m glad that the newer version has Ashley a bit higher in the mix. Don\'t know if that was John Congleton\'s or JC\'s doing, but it works well on the song from the comp.

Could someone please fix this slash problem? My eyes! My eyes!

song on comp was mixed @ the lab

i dont think there was a concious effort to bring up the vocal on the remixes, but i did keep asking for the vocal to be brought back when we mixed in chicago. i think i got tricked from the mix level being HOLYSHITISITREALLYTHATLOUD LOUD. as in control room pot one click from being at full gain, no joke.

Thank you, 9:46, I agree. This is some boolshit. Record Hop ain't never been nothing but a hard working band with zero pretense. They hang out, they don't try to be sonmething they are not, and they don't claim nothing but loud. The EVIL MEAN FAKE OH WHAT A SCOUNDREL Scott, and Ashley and Cory, and from what I've seen of Tony the new drummer, those guys are solid man. You're sick of the hype? Get off the internet, chump! A band records in the summer, mixes in the fall, masters in the winter, and releases in the spring--Shit the only problem is your habit of instant gratification. That actual shit costs money, but the word and the excitement dont. So what.They try and get the word out? Don't click the message if you don't care then! Those kids are awesome and I'm fucking proud of them. PIMP that shit, Record Hop. Send out 100 more messages about your new record and the people you respect working on it. We are happy to see you happy! Just cuz sum indie rock blog viewer has some beef don't have nothing to do with reality! Everybody thats heard of Albini knows that anybody can record with Albini. They DID. That effort and belief in themselves matters to me. They going to get huge? Who cares? I know they don't!! Jesus people just fucking get a hobby and relax. I know by boosting them some of you pricks arew just going to hate them more, but so what? You're nothing but an empty hater anyway and you got a motive that you aint mentioning.

What the fucking fuck is wrong with you people.
Every band that "lived" at SHQ put out a record last year.
That's part of what it was for.. you know, the other 5 days of the week.
SHQ didn't pay for it... in fact, they all paid to help keep SHQ going.
That shit was rediculously expensive to keep going.

And I'll be god damned if I'd ever let it stand in the way of someone's art.

why do people on here feel the need to impose there way of thinking on everyone else. I like to know about who is recording what and where. Occasionally iI like to actually know how. I find it interesting. I like to know who bands are working with to. Just because a few people don't care about that stuff that does not mean the rest of us should stay in the dark. If you don't care then simply don't care and move on.

Very childish behavior. Grow up.
