Prepare to enter a strange, digital lo-fi nexus of psychedelic rock!
These tracks are the first Glaze of Cathexis tunes and were recorded in Utsunomiya, Japan in 2005 as I was getting myself familiar with my recording programs and having something of a creative splurge.
You'll enter straight into my crazy on "The Future." "Behind The Curtain" is my attempt to combine the worst of the 60's with the worst of the 80's, while "Reduced To Dust" was written on the job and drunkenly recorded that very same night. Meanwhile, I've always thought "Too Much Action" sounds too much like a pick-up truck commercial.
Most of the guitar parts were recorded on a shiny gold sparkle Silvertone guitar as my Telecaster was in the States at the time. It gives a lot of the music a strange, rubbery feel. Even more disturbingly, I didn't have a proper bass at the time so all the bass is MicroKorg or the Silvertone heavily re-equalized! That said, I don't think I recorded another set of music I like as much as this one until four years later.
