Blog.

Art Brut are in Oregon. We are recording our album in a punk as fuck two weeks with Black Francis. It is going really well we're already about 7 songs in. We've written two new ones too "Twist and Shout" and "The Passenger".

We're staying in a hotel on the freeway and went to a local bar on Friday. Very local. It was a bit like this pub scene from American Werewolf in London when we entered. Everybody went silent and looked at us. The fact that everybody in the pub was watching a teenage boy being mauled by a Lion on the television made the pub even scarier.The staff and customers were all actually really nice though and who can fault a pub that has Proud Mary by Creedence Clearwater Revival on the Jukebox.

Thinking about it now though I should have put Bad Moon On The Rise on to fully get that American Werewolf vibe.

A little later in to proceedings a scary coke/crystal meth guy came over to sit with us. He was nice enough and warned us about people like himself who were addicted to substances and consequently might want to steal our money. He was very polite though and gave me his number on a little piece of paper just in case I wanted to try crystal meth in the future. He also wrote "follow the trail of blood back to the hotel" on the piece of paper. I dont think that was his name though.

If your ever driving along the freeway in Salem and fancy a drink. I recommend  the random cocktail bar attached to a chinese restaurant near some hotels. The staff are friendly and polite and it is a bit of an adventure.

Barnaby Fudge has started a blog about the album too it is HERE.

I know people think I am him. I promise you Im not though. I just claim the credit for some of the funnier things he has said.

I'm really looking forward to the new album. Frank Black ftw! Speaking of which, how many freaking albums are you releasing next year? Between AB, EWITFR... N!, GC, and whatever else, you're going to drive me to the poor house, drop me off, and leave me there!

I like the names for the new tracks, that's like saying "we wrote two new tracks, one called 'I was made for loving you' and the other 'Don't dream it's over'"...
