Chuxx Mentioned In Press Release

Hey, y'all, we were mentioned in this press release for our pals at Rotting Snout Studios. We have recorded all of our albums there since 2001.

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KS - Rotting Mouse Studios is proud to announce new upgrades to our facilities in Prairie Village, KS. Improvements include newly-functional microphones and a newly constructed separate recording booth.

Thanks to some sleuthing at Interstate Batteries, we now have the use of three Nakamichi CM-300 microphones and a Sennheiser MD 441-U. The former is great for capturing acoustic instruments like guitars and uke, the latter for vocals and horns.

The microphones will sound great in the new Potter's Booth, so named for its location under the stairs and lock on the outside. It features room for two musicians (three if one of them is wee), gear, and cable runs for microphones and headphones. The new headphone mixer will deliver custom mixes to the headphones, along with talkback capabilities. A webcam in the booth will allow for broadcasting live video and capturing the crazy antics of the musicians.

Bring your recording business to Rotting Mouse Studios or we'll leave a real rotting mouse on your doorstep (just kidding)!

Rotting Mouse Studios, LLC is located in Prairie Village, KS. Frequented by the talent represented on the Chubb Records Recording Label, artists who record at Rotting Mouse Studios include: Glen and the Fin Merchants, the Perry Blather Conspiracy, Bobby & the Chuxx, Gary O'Nemo, Tulip Craze, SlobberFly, Pie Trajectory, Tongueprint, Voltaire & Swift, and Col. K & the Hit Squad.

Of Astronauts, Tourists & Cheese

While I sat on my veranda in Los Angeles having starlets peel me grapes, the three other Chuxx gathered in Steve's Basement (the official Chuxx recording location) to lay down some more Mustardy tracks.

The gents worked on two songs Skap and I collaborated on, in that I wrote lyrics that he then put to music. Which I guess makes me Bernie Taupin and him Elton John. That's probably a fair comparison. The two songs in question are "With Drunk Astronauts" and "The Tourist Halts." The former a meditation on the historically documented drinking habits of our space heroes; the latter a little ditty about ugly Americans abroad. The other track they worked on was "Cheese Jesus".

Mostly what the gents did on this day was adding some guitar and keyboard to the existing tracks, although they did fill out "Astronauts" with lots of vocals, including a hilariously operatic track from Polly.

Now, it's up to me to add to the tracks from my home in Los Angeles. I guess that means I'll have to finally install that recording software I've had sitting in my office for the last three months.

I suppose Steve or Skap or someone will have something to add to this account, provided they get off their duffs and actually post on our blog.
