March 1, 2002: We moved to Brooklyn 16 years ago to do this, hard to believe...
For various reasons, a 15 year anniversary show didn't happen in 2017. We'll make it a Sweet 16 show this year - details to come.
Thanks to all of my clients and those who have supported me through the years.
And many thanks to Martin Bisi for obvious reasons...

Sean Coleman & The Quasars - Count on Me

Excited to have Sean Coleman and The Quasars back in the studio tomorrow. Here's a little something from the last time they were here a couple of years ago:

Behind the scene photage.. Recording of the brand new 45 that Sean Coleman & The Quasars are releasing soon.

Seizures Palace Recording Control Room. Roughly 60-70% of the albums I've recorded here are on the walls. I never got copies of many of them. When I first got here in 2002, Martin Bisi had all of his records similarly placed on his side (the BC Studio side) of the room. One day, he got a wild hair and decided to take them down (video links below), but didn't tell me in advance. When I arrived the following day, I thought we had been robbed.

Lydia Lunch/Weasel Walter Duo tonight at Seizures Palace. Lydia's first time back in the space since her recordings with Martin Bisi in the mid-1980's.

NEW ATLANTIS RECORDS

Talking today, Edward Ricart and I realized we had recorded 14 albums together over the last 5 years. The energy this guy has amazes me. His label New Atlantis Records, put out 30 releases last year. THIRTY. This while he finished a college degree, helped raise 2 kids, and help start his wife's Montessori school. He has consistently brought the best musicians to these sessions and I am grateful that he keeps coming back. He's in the band Hyrrokkin, whose album you should go get right now. Here is the link to New Atlantis - go buy some music.

"...on their awesomely-titled upcoming debut Serious Heft, Split Red—led by the muscular Melvins disciple Stephen Buono and singer Nebadon Adams—gnash through AmRep/Touch & Go-sized punk skuzzery and metallic slow burners. There’s even a machine gun solo from finger-hopping, banjo-destroying maestro…

Had an amazing year of music with the following (thank you all): Staer, Ed Ricart, Talibam!, Dark Carpet, Charles Gayle, Haunted House, 1129, Dave Buddin, Sexy Neighbors, Tobias Klein, Mike Snowden, KiLiFAX, Cactus Truck, Keir Neuringer, Todd Jasko, Galm Quartet, Human$, James Ilgenfritz Trio, and of course, PANTS EXPLODER.

Go find 'em. Buy music! Here's to 2014! I resolve to keep up this page more...

I've been really lax about posting on this page. Going to try to be better about it. Starting now. This week, I'll be posting releases recorded at SP from the past year. Here is the first one: Charles Gayle's Streets. Probably my favorite jazz album I've recorded to date.

Check out In Parade and become a fan!

Born in Lawrence, Kansas (during a tornado) Donald Badaczewski was not aware his ear was being trained on summer trips by a father who himself had snuck out of his home in 1958, as a 15 year-old, to watch James Brown perform live at the Duke roller-rink in Detroit, Michigan. While watching a trail of his father's pipe smoke disappear out the window, from the backseat, most often times at night, and best when his mom and brother were asleep, great jazz and soul recordings were played on the radio and from tape recordings and it brought on pure wonder. This feeling was always heightened upon hearing a warm needle hiss introduce the 1963 record of James Brown's, "Live at the Apollo." The boy wanted to know what universe this happened in? Was the man, ok? Why were these girls shrieking so madly? Did James ever save them?

In Parade is Donald Badaczewski's musical collective. Currently he is working with David Gagliardi on guitar, Bryan Percival on bass, and Oskar Haggdahl on drums. Badaczewski created the record in studios in Lansing, Michigan, Little Silver, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, New York. Jack Daley (Lenny Kravitz's bassist of 14 years, producer, and studio musician on over 200 albums) produced and played on Detroit Pimp and patiently taught Donald studio craft. The Grammy nominated producer Christian Castagno produced four songs from his home in Columbia. The engineers Jason LaFarge (Swans), Alex Newport (Mars Volta, At The Drive-In, Death Cab For Cutie), and Detroit's own Mark Ephraim (The New Pornographers, Bernie Worrell) kindly assisted Badaczewski in the completion of the project. The record was mastered by Alex Saltz, of APS Sound, NYC. Project Design and Identity by Matthew Kraus (Abercrombie & Fitch, Interview Magazine, Bottega Veneta).
