I can't believe I'm finally finished with
ALL 6 Mutant Melvin graphic novels.
The last one coming out the 25th
(Melvin's birthday, for those who get the reference)
There will, of course be outtakes, deleted & alternate
scenes posted in the picture galleries, and Believe Me
-there's a whole entire book of 'em. It'll no doubt be
a little time consuming, but I'll get it done, eventually.
What else I'm working on:
I just began work on a another project.
"Bill Ulsh Trilogy" (or just simply "Trilogy")
a triple remix album where I take a handful
of select songs from all 3 albums and redo them in a different
(and very interesting) way.
1st we have the "All Synth Remix"
which on the surface, sounds like the original
just with a different coat of paint.
Square Lead and Synth Bass may be obvious,
but the sawtooth acts as sort of a rhythm guitar part.
Next We have the "Full Band Edit".
Where I get to play guitar on songs
that didn't previously have them,
and I know what You're all thinking -
"but wait... don't they already have guitar?"
Yes, but it's the keyboard's guitar.
Here, those parts are swapped out with actual guitar.
However if You're expecting "wicked crazy solos",
You might be setting Yourself up for a serious disappointment
because what can be played on guitar, will be played. (mostly rhythm stuff)
and last, but certainly not least is what I'm personally
most excited for - "The Classic Edition"
and why do I find this exciting?
Because this one basically brings back a sound I'd not
heard in nearly a decade. Even before I started making albums.
See, before I had My Yamaha PSR-E413 that You hear on the albums,
I had a Crumar "Organizer-B" (mislabelled as Traveler-1)
and for an old draw bar organ, it had a pretty heavy sound
complete with a bumpin' split bass. The distortion on that thing
could rival some guitars easily before its untimely demise
back in 2008. Well I guess You could say it's alive again
(in some form, anyway) and not only the sound, but the
playing style as well, because the synth track on the albums
has always been based on that playing style.
I think it's safe to say I've found My next project to
keep Me occupied for quite some time to come.
