this is the oldest song we perform. it was released on 2006's "[the red album]", but the song was actually written/recorded a few years earlier. there's an electronica-infused version on my hard drive somewhere that i'll have to dig out. lots of piano, fx, voiceovers, and a short understated solo. the intro has a beautiful accident as the combination of a zvex seek wah and octane (original version) picked up a radio broadcast from somewhere. i really do need to find that recording...

anyway, the piano part that originally existed was translated to bass via a tapping figure (splendidly created by jeremy hull of the texas cowpunk band holy moly, which you need to check out pronto. actually both jeremy and drummer joe carpenter who perform on my album are in holy moly, so there's even more reason to seek the band out in haste) for the album version. doug performs a modified version of that here. yay doug!

"blacken the sky" is the only song where the solo i perform live is fairly similar to the one on the studio recording. that solo was a one-take improvisation, and i got lucky. it has a great melody and build, so i quote the solo when performing it live. i mean it's not exactly the same, but it's pretty close...

stuff that goes bump in the night:
reverend reeves gabrels ii (orange, drop-d), zvex wah probe, blackstone appliances mosfet overdrive, xotic ep booster, electro harmonix superego, korg kaoss, source audio orbital modulator, mxr carbon copy, line6 dl4, source audio dimensions reverb, randall rm100, lava retro coil and clear connect cables, curt mangan strings, soldier straps
