In just a few hours we'll begin doing our part to help bring the second House of Blondes record to fruition.

You know the story - band finishes project and either drifts away or rides the wave of inspiration to create. Fortunately, it appears that the latter has happened to John Blonde and his House.

John and fellow Blonde Paul Reyes have been writing feverishly, using Garageband I believe (more about that little program in another post) and making some pretty good "demos". These days a demo can be a record, and with Garageband in the hands of writers, arrangers, and musicians, there can be a surprising amount of depth in a recording made primarily to write. I have no doubt tracks that John and Paul have already created will find their way into the new record. It's much like what Blonde Mike I. has been doing with His Friend Tony in their band Get Help.

A very productive way to produce, no question.

I'm excited about the new project, at least partly because John seems so excited. Every collaborative effort deserves someone to keep the dream moving forward, and John's the perfect person to play this role. After all, he created the part.

That he would ask us to be involved with the next stage in the Ascent of the House of Blondes is flattering, to say the least.

I can't wait to hear what you guys come up with. After listening to my vinyl copy of the last record, the best compliment I can offer you guys on the production end is that it was made to be a vinyl pressing. I usually follow vinyl with vinyl when listening and it's amazing how the House record stands up to others.

Whatever you do, make sure they press 12 in. this time around too!
