Cow Recording - October Newsletter
National Vegetarian Month! -
We have finally joined in the
masses and created our very own MySpace page. Yes, I know it's kind of
late to be jumping on the bandwagon, but hey, we have one now. Please
and be our friend!
Our third podcast is up and ready to be played on via your favorite mp3
player, be it an iPod, Creative or just your computer. Check it out on
our Bandcast page at www.callthecow.com/RecordingPodcast.htm. This month's
featured artists are Gary Landess,

Boerner, Bluebottle and of course our own Roughly
For the month of October we

One last month to give your
input on a guitar shop questionaire. It's for some friends of ours who
will be opening up a new guitar store. It would be great to get everyone's
opinion about your favorite gear, it will only take a minute of your time,
only 12 short questions. Just go to the Guitar
Poll to get there.
WHOS in the RECORDING STUDIO
Gary "karate master" Landess is
slicing and dicing his way through his second album. Stomping out beats
with his resophonic guitar and laying down some rough and gritty vocals
on cover songs such as Rhythmeen and Killing Floor. Although he's handed
over bass guitar duties to Kevin "bass in your face" Mayes of
Diamond Studios, Gary is still playing drums, guitar (electric and resophonic),
harmonica, singing and playing the all important cowbell! You can hear
his new tunes on this month's podcast. Also check out his website for
more "Gary" news at www.garylandess.com.
"master of the rumba beat" Jankowski
recorded another Christmas song here at The Cow. Pete came into the studio
with lyrics, a melody and song structure for "Christmas Train",
and we filled in the rest. The song is a fun upbeat piece written for
children and features a catchy "choo-choo" hook. Cow favorite
Greg "place on the" Boerner lent his guitar skills to the song
while staff singer Dan "the like-able one" Brooks lent his voice.
Pete will be producing an album of Christmas songs with a fellow songwriter
which will hopefully be ready for this season's Christmas rush.
Rock band Vital
Kin has completed final mixes for their album "Desist
the Reign." The album mixes rock elements with a more spacey vibe
including keyboard and lots of distorted guitar. You can hear one of their
songs, It Will Arrive, on our newest podcast. Vital Kin comes from Mount
Prospect and is comprised of Joe "trilingual" Bozek and Roger
"keep it in check" Bozek.
