Behind the Scenes

One of the draws of a blog like this (this blog has draws?) is getting a behind-the-scenes look at what a band does. You've seen the posts describing how we write songs, and what we're recording.

But what about promotion? The Chuxx are on myspace, facebook (somewhere), and I have just added us to iLike, which is a facebook add on, but also a site in its own right. You can make your self a fan of Bobby and the Chuxx, and then I get notifications in aggregate form. For instance, here is our first graph of statistics:

So indicate you iLike us and become a fan on myspace. We clearly need some numbers.

The Revare Family Ghostly Children Screamers

Today Jon and I got together to record some vocals, clean up the drums, add even more guitar parts (which now number 6), and do some rough mixing of "Shower Power." Jon's daughter, an avid Chuxx fan, always said she wanted to appear on a Chuxx song. When the time came, she proved too shy. My children, however, sang, "Water water everywhere, to cover up your STINK." They sang it so intensely it sounds a little like they are angry. It was because of their performance that Skap named them "The Revare Family Ghostly Children Screamers."
