Mama Take Another Stand: He...
Mama Take Another Stand: Here's the first rough-mixed track available from the Corvids record. It's one of about five out-and-out rockers on the 10-song CD, compared to two barroom country songs & three creepy/pretty slowies.
Weird thing about this recording -- it was the one we really assumed would take the longest, due to the jungle-voodoo mystery element. And in fact it was all a live first-take (even the guitar solo). Only overdubs were piano, a shaker, the low-octave vocal & the woo-hoos. Anyway, it's rough mix, done in haste, but it gives you a (weird) taste of the record & the band.

I would love to hear these tracks, but I'll have to wait until it's on sale at Tower. Downloading music off the internet is like stealing from the artists themselves. It's just wrong !!
Bro, what are you talking about? The song has been put up there specifically by the artist for your listening pleasure. If you make a copy & give it to your friends, well, that's between you and Your God. But listen away.
Well, as long as it's ok with the Corvids, I guess I can get "jiggy with it", as the kids say. BTW, when are the Corvids going to start doing actual gigs and the like.
We're trying to schedule a super-secret debut show for around Oct. 17; if all goes well it will be triply fantastic with the who-we're-playing-with, but we'll see....
If you tour, please get out of L.A. sometime and visit us up here in the northern reaches of the state. But don't go to SF. There's no place to park.
Needs more balalaika, and cowbell.
The song sounds fantastic even when you mistakenly open up two browsers and get a second version running at a 15 second lag.
