Palm Springs Museum, ongoning work...

Work has begun on the next CD from phog masheeen, titled "The Eternal Battle of Heat and Cold." So far we have had outstanding recording sessions with Bobby Almon from Liver Cancer and Emmy Collins from Brutal Poodle. Both Bobby and Emmy made brilliant contributions and thank you does not express our gratitude for their participation in the project. More work is underway and we are weaving in tracks from all of our different tools. The Pick-0-Phone and The Shambler being represented among them.

Unique to this production is the fact that William Almas is working in parallel with the audio recordings creating video content and his experiments are informing the audio production. There is some back and forth there.

On the performance front, phog masheeen will be performing at the Palm Springs Art Museum on March 11th as part of their free. Second Sunday series. They are running a great show that will still be up when we perform. Titled Backyard Oasis: The Swimming Pool in Southern California Photography, 1945-1982   We will be performing from 1:00 to 2:00 PM in the James and Jackie Lee Houston Atrium on March 11, 2012.
