Happy New Year!
Don't Miss The 100 Year Art Show: January 12, 2008

Modernsplashcover_2 We now have the final master and cover artwork for the new record, TALES OF A MODERN SPLASH! 

The record will be released on our own independent record label, Wheelie Pop Records.  We are planning a pre-release early February, with the official release a month or so later.  We are very excited about this piece of work and we can't wait for you to hear it! 

We will have a few ways for you to get your copies early, including a way to get a free CD during the pre-release, so stay tuned for more information on this special pre-release promotion. 

As you know, we recorded and mixed the entire record here at home, in my basement studio.  Many of the songs started as improvisations, and we literally built these melodies, words, and further orchestration on top of these original improvisations.  In typical 100YP fashion, we also invited a bunch of our friends to join in the fun.  Well more on all of this later...

The master from Carl Saff turned out absolutely fantastic.  If you are curious about what mastering is, join the club!  It is a bit of a mystery to most of us, but basically it is the final professional step after mixing all of the songs.  Carl does a much better job explaining all about mastering, right here on his website.  Edwin and I traveled up to Chicago to see (and hear) Carl in action.  He's a great engineer and a great guy, and I've learned quite alot in this process.  For you musicians out there, I highly recommend getting your music professionally mastered, and I highly recommend Carl. 

We are also super-duper happy with the artwork from Ruth Buzzy rocker and artist Phil Schuldt.  So, all we have left is the final manufacturing, a fair amount of rehearsing to play more shows in 2008, and the truly fun part...marketing and promotion...  Hey, if you have any ideas, let us know!!!  We will need your help to get the word out about this record.   Meanwhile, more details coming soon about the release, the music, the musicians...
