Onto the good news : Oktopus aka 1/3 of Dalek has turned in his track and damn do I love it. The song itself is actually a few years old and originally written by Barry London ( Jah Division ) and I when we had a home recording project called the Scissorettes. We never formally recorded anything but the song "Miss Me" remained a favorite and something I dreamed of recording properly. So here it is, like 5 years later and the song sounds better than ever.
More good news : I am happy to officially announce two more people who have been kind enough to share their talents with me for this record. I couldn't be any more honored and thrilled to tell you Aaron Turner ( Isis, Old Man Gloom, Hydra Head Records ) is working on a track for me right now. Its being recorded as I type this so I have yet to hear it but come on...it's Aaron we are talking about here and we know it will RULE !!! I am probably more excited about this than you are. No really. In the meantime I do have a few special pictures to share : meet Aaron, ceiling fan, and Orange. Also for a good time check out : http://www.sgnl05.com and http://www.hydrahead.com
Here is one more item to file under good news : Rex Ritter ( Sunn0))) , Fontanelle, Jessamine ) has also been sent his track and begins work on it shortly. Yeah, I know, pretty amazing...right ? I couldn't ask for better help and seriously I can't guess what to expect from this collaboration other than the obvious.... awesome. Check out : http://www.southernlord.com and http://www.kranky.net for more Rex goodness.
For all the hurdles I have faced making this record finally come true I know it will all be worth it in the end. As more songs are finished I promise to put up a track listing and all the artists involved in this here Ringfinger project. There are still a few special guests to list to keep on checking back. Thanks to all who have dropped me a line and offered kind words !
ps: Silly me, the Cave In / Converge supergroup is actually spelled : Verge-In, clever ain't it ?
