Gas House Gorillas' Blog

Mixing at Super 70 Studio in Beacon, NY! 

In many ways, recording the Gorillas was way easier than recording solo. We all knew what GHG were and the object was to represent that thing sonically. This one's a little trickier. At first my producer, Harley Fine, would ask me for references for sounds and direction and I would pull things from here and there without a clue as to what direction these mixes should take. It's taken me three mixes to get a bead on what this album should sound like. Bruce Springsteen talked about working like the tortoise,…

Getting closer!!! 

Greetings Gates! 

I have not checked in for a while, so here I am! As of this weekend, we have finished tracking four out of ten songs at Super 70 Studio in Beacon, NY.

Pre-order Rick Fink's solo debut! 

P.S. You and yours can still choose to contribute to our Indiegogo fund through our On Demand feature.

9 Days Left! 

With no illusions I implore you... That's quite a sentence isn't it? Nine days left. Nine days! Okay, so maybe for the sake of argument, you might say that I jumped into this thing a little too quickly. Maybe nobody actually cares if my music is growing and flourishing in new and interesting ways. Maybe I should not make assumptions about the willingness of fans of my former band to jump into this new project with yours truly, before they have had a chance to suss out what I may be currently up to…
