Pseudo Space - Day 3 at PSEUDO.

Live From PSEUDOIt's our third night in PSEUDO and it's beginning to feel like home.  Get in early and enjoy some pastrami and a hot dog with your compadres. Less to do, less to set up but still lots to do and lots to setup.  Nevertheless, when we got going we broke into a Stranger that had a good jam and a good end so there is no argument to be made about it.  Very few guests were there but apparently a record turnout tuning in across the country.  At least Steve tuned in and a first, a posting during the show, and two of them to boot.

I'm listening to the tape right now and it sounds pretty good, so close to great but the DAT level's are way-high and I'm amazed it sounds as good as it does. It breaks up a bit.  It's good though.  The drum separation is great, the best I have ever heard it.  You can really hear what each drummer is doing.  It's too bad the levels are too high because the mix is nice.  Good news, as I'm listening, it sounds like Peter discovered the levels being too loud  during the She Belongs To Me and it sounds okay.  No I am wrong, we just go quiet for a few seconds and moved on, Oh well.

I got the new equipment listing I'll be putting up from now on, what the heck.  Once it's set and copied from week to week it will be easy to maintain.

There were some real nice musical moments including a hot Music Never Stopped.  Excellent Estimated and a nice Minglewood Blues.

With the whole Realaudio thing over the Internet we should really start our show officially at 8:00 for people tuning in.  Anything before it would merely be a soundcheck but a 8:00 someone should introduce us and we break into our first song.  Whatever that song is we should make an effort to hit the 8:00 starting time with a song meeting the time slot and have 3 hours of strong music.  Now that we have the  audience of 4 we shouldn't take that 10' O'clock break but rather do a drums /space and get our break that way. If anyone wants to do a talk show, pre-jam show with JV and Bradshaw, feel free to produce a show.  I want to hear the Kevin - Tefillin Ken talk show lead in to Deadstein.  A show where beards and burps are welcome.

Till next Tuesday in Pseudo Studios.  Try to get your friends and family to listen at www.SugarMegs.org.
