|So last night I get a text message from John that just says "The last batch of records is soaking in shit." |
"6 inches of sewage in the basement".
I then realized that a lot more than the remaining copies of our first album were probably soaking in shit water.
PJ is supposed to be heading back to AZ this weekend, and was going to sell his old bass cab and old bass today to cover some costs for the trip. now they've been shitwatered. John's $600 keyboard. shitwatered. His ill-advised purchase of a $150 1950s Horner accordion? shitwatered (in John's words, "never even used it, now it's filled with shit"). I haven't talked to Alex yet, but I hear he's suffered the worst since well, most of the gear there was his. Vox Tonelab, tube screamer, his fuckin sweet 70s fender combo amp, his box full of harmonicas, his American Strat, Japanese thinline telecaster, some really nice ass headphones, and probably a lot of other gear that's now seemingly ruined. Blades's bass drum also got shitwatered. So that's a real bummer. i don't even want estimate the losses, but it ain't pretty.
But at least the show tonight is still going on thanks to good people letting them borrow some clean gear.
i'm gonna see if i can't come up a new online EP really damn quickly to maybe help get my friends cover repairs/new stuff. mind you i don't know how to do any of that, but i'm gonna see what i can learn here.
