SONIC RANCH IS AWESOME! What a fantastic facility. Amazing collection of gear, from instruments and amps to mic's and outboard gear...I feel like a kid in a candy store. I spent almost 3 days just plugging stuff in and getting incredible sounds. The 40 channel SSL4000 console is sweeeeeeet! I've been in the studio with MINISTRY for about a week now. We're working one-song-at-a-time and have just completed the first one, "NO-W". It's fast and furious.

I have been invited to come down to El Paso, Texas, where MINISTRY is in pre-production for their next bout of recording projects. I may be in the driver's seat for basic tracking (as well as for the long haul driving down there from NY) starting in November (if I'm not abducted by aliens from Roswell on the way there). This is a great opportunity. If all goes well I might get to work on Al Jourgensen's other projects along with my good friend, guitarist Mike Scaccia who has set up the introduction (thanks Mike!!!). Holla at me if you are in NY and wanna see me before I ride off into the sunset once again!

Fantastically successful basic tracking sessions at Ins & Outs with John Hovorka and his back line group Provan this past weekend. All the performances were top notch, the drum room sounds great, and we got really cool guitar and bass tones. Both John Hovorka and Provan had fun and enjoyed working at Ins & Outs. Thanks go out to John for the opportunity to work on this project, all the guys in Provan for great performances and attitudes, and to Ins & Outs manager Ray Schilke for all of his help and support.
