A little background: I've alluded to my band, Artificial Intelligence, on this blog before, most expansively here; in the wake of the engagement described in the linked post, the personnel determined that, as they say in the movie, it would be fun to either make a record or play out again, or both.
Three years and change after that, we made a record. The aforementioned personnel are:
Daniel Burwasser, drums; Ron Goldberg, keyboards and samples; Douglas Harvey, the electric bass; myself, Glenn Kenny, vocals and low-grade guitar; and Thomas Santamassino, guitar. The rhythm tracks were recorded at BC Studios in Brooklyn by the great Martin Bisi in the winter of 2011; the vocals were recorded in the same venue, by Mr. Bisi, in November of 2012. The overdubs were recorded by Ron Goldberg at his homes at various sessions between 2011 and 2014. The records was mixed in February of 2014 by Martin Bisi, with Ron and myself sitting in on all sessions, Mssrs. Harvey and Santamassino advising on separate sessions.
The recording, which if released in album form will be titled Revisionist History, was produced by Ron Goldberg with Martin Bisi. The band entity can best be credited as the Associate Producer. The reason for the title is that all the material on the recording was originally composed and played out in the early 1980s. We have not yet determined a release date, or even a definitive release form for the recording, which consists of eight songs. I wanted to present the above track as a kind of "sneak preview" of the record, and also leech some interest off of the release of the latest Godzilla picture, no duh. Hope you enjoy the song and the admittedly rudimentary slideshow "video."
