On Monday night, at a pumpkin carving contest, guitarist Michael Bokosky carved up the H.A. Perkins logo, complete with sunglasses and a snake, to win the Grand Prize.

Armed with only a kitchen knife, Mike spent a half hour creating the winning design.

Ghosts In My Head

GHOSTS IN MY HEAD

The night explodes
I felt it building inside me slow
But still my senses won’t let me know
Won’t let me know what’s real
Your body’s cold
I warm my hands on whatever’s close
A precious pill little anecdote
Now I’m frozen […]

Shuffle the Cube

SHUFFLE THE CUBE

My father and father’s father
Rolling on the screen
If I could hold just a piece of the dream
‘Cause it’s my run putting on the genes
If I could hold
If I could hold
Just a piece of the dream

There’s […]

LADY LIMBO

Lady Limbo on the corner
With a gaze that stills the night
Built a tolerance with other
Lovers
But only your good lovin’ gets me high
Gets me high

Oh let me heal
Instead of when you bleed me dry
For the […]

GRAND

Feed my f—ing ego baby
Tell me all these crazy things
Crushing up my words and sprinkling
Grandiose delusions in my dreams
My f—ing ego baby
Tell me all these crazy things
Crushing up my words and sprinkling
Grandiose delusions in my dreams

Roovy

ROOVY

When the shadow
Slips through our eyes
And wraps up the colors
Where we lie
Close your eyes and shrug
And try to wish it away
Close your mouth and swallow
All the thoughts you might say

‘Cause we’ve got the fire in […]

Mike finished all the guitar tracking and it’s gonna blow your socks off.

David Gilmore himself would be jealous of the tones we got on the guitar for “Roovy”, and the solos on “Ghosts In My Head” are lush and dangerous.

On to the vocals next. Time for Spence to kill it!

Brian finished laying down the bass, and we jumped right in with Michael on the guitars.

Just finished tracking the tasty guitar licks of “Shuffle The Cube” and “Lady Limbo.” We’re getting some slick tones on the old guitar, and as always, Mr. Bokosky’s playing is top shelf.

The way it’s coming together leaves no […]

Brian finished “Shuffle The Cube”, “Ghosts In My Head”, and “Lady Limbo” earlier this week. He still has to finish “Grand” and “Roovy” and the rythym section will be complete!
