A purple room, a puppy, pizza and Sexcop

On the construction front, Jim painted the front room an electric purple (J Mascis will be happy):
And patched the wall above the circuit breakers:
James finished trimming the Ruby Room, painted all that trim and brainstormed ways to enhance the soundproofing of our sliding doors.
At long last, our electrician wrapped up his work yesterday — including installation of a stunning, green ceiling lamp in the live room (pix to come).
On the social front, Koko came to visit Saturday:
She was accompanied by Allegra and Niall Santo and their mom, Carole Filangieri, who all stayed for pizza lunch with Eric Neher.
In the musical arena, Bill brought in two more clients yesterday: Josh from Sexcop tracked background vocals for a long session starting in afternoon, followed by Harvey Valdes from The Cool and Deadly, who worked on guitar overdubs until midnight.
“The Kennel is quickly becoming our favorite place to record. Being able to capture the full band live to tape is amazing, plus access to glorious vintage gear to boot… what else could we ask for!? The staff are so relaxed during sessions, we forget they are even there. Billy has a great ear, but most importantly listens for the sound the band is actually going for. All in all, the Kennel creates a perfect atmosphere to do what you came to do — make music.”
