In other news, things have been very busy for me, hence all the cruddy communication (or lack thereof) including non-updated schedules etc. The good news is, there’s a lot going on. Played a preschool yesterday with Baer from the Polecats and had a tremendous time. I’m looking forward to doing more work with kids. Look for a couple of recording projects to happen this summer. I’ll soon be recording a drone record with Eau Claire’s one and only Ben Hinz (aka your old pal Aen) of Dwarfcraft Devices and the Ronald Raygun. Dwarfcraft make some amazing fuzz pedals, analog synths, etc. and have recently launched Dwarfcraft Global Media. Look for that recording session plus a live concert featuring me and my hero Mr. Steven McCabe (Attack Octopus, the Willis, Congratulations on your Decision to Become a Pilot, etc.). Also in the works for this summer will be a new Conrad Plymouth album that I’m honored to be involved in. If you get the chance, you should really check out the band. It’s been a ton of fun becoming a member. As always, there’s a new Jeff Mitchell album brewing in my mind. My goal is to begin recording in the fall. Wish me luck!

love to all, Jeff

p.s. I made myself a new washtub bass the other day. I remembered how much I love playing that thing!
