With Kyle – Basement Preserves

January 22nd, 2010 1 comment

August 1994. Dave was coming to visit me in Portland, OR and asked if he should bring an electric or acoustic guitar. Told him whichever one he hasn’t played in a while. Showed up with a Yamaha six string acoustic. I had access to some electrified kalimbas (thumb pianos) but possessed no talent for playing them. That never stopped me before. I do believe this was the first time Dave had seen one and he bought one from my friend who makes them and was used on his later ‘H’ recordings.

Do wish I could extract my horrid contribution that rained down crap, but try and get past that and listen to Dave’s wonderful playing. Recorded on 1/4″ reel-to-reel with an SM57 mic on Dave, Roland digital delay and a Biamp spring reverb unit and a Makie 1202 mixer. I also misapply an OmniChord which is like an electronic auto-harp with percussion sounds.
Just heard this tape yesterday since it was recorded, made up the titles 10 minutes ago.
