    FIENDISH STUDIO BLOG - DECEMBER UPDATE



Jack Daniels

UPDATE 01 December 2009 - In the studio recording some backing vocals with vocal lubrication courtesy of Mr Jack Daniels - yum!

UPDATE 02 December 2009 - Note! The JD was for vocal lubrication ONLY - we are doing the engineering ourselves n playing, singing & everything else - we wouldn't get very far by getting TOO wrecked!

UPDATE 03 December 2009 - Actually we don't need to be totally off our bongos on "substance of choice" - the music does that for us anyway! It IS indeedy usually a cup of tea that fuels the fiendish wheels. But for clearing the ol' vocal chords n throat JD is the best we've found - for us anyway - so it really was "medicinal" type purpose! (honest guv!)

UPDATE 07 December 2009 - Started recording another track yesterday..... finishing that off today / tomorrow..

UPDATE 14 December 2009 - Taking a break from recording - ears & brains are fried - but in a good way !! Catching up with other stuff that's been building up for the last week or so...

UPDATE 18 December 2009 - Nik Fiend writes :
Now working on the last coupla songs... hope to nail 'em down by the New Year (ish)... touch wood. Dunno if u realise wot an awesome woman Mrs Fiend is? If she's not drumming, she's on the keyboards & if she's not doing that she's playing percussion, or programming, or doing engineering, or making space ship & zombie noises... It's well exciting, with the end of the recording in sight. But we've gotta compile it, master it etc etc & tho I've been working on artwork in between the sesssions, that's all gotta be sorted out, so we are AT IT!!

    FIENDISH STUDIO BLOG - NOVEMBER UPDATE




Mrs Fiend and Ol' Nik - Photo credit : Axel

UPDATE 11 November 2009 - Mrs Fiend writes :
Nik & I have just completed a mammoth session in the recording studio.... we reckon we've got 4 tracks finished now, 2 others need a bit more overdubbing & mixing, another song is still in its early stages so that'll take a while yet... Gonzo came along to put down some extra wig city guitar ... we hadn't seen him for some weeks cos Nik & I were busy working on the other tracks.... it's amazing but do you realise that Gonzo has worked with Alien Sex Fiend on & off for over 14 years now? He's the longest serving fiendish henchman by a long shot.... reckon that makes him as crazee as we are!

UPDATE 25 November 2009 - Nik Fiend writes :
I've finally come up for air... from the darkest depths of the studio of terror. I'm well braindead at the mo, totally in zombie mode, I've bin burning the candle at both ends, hammering away wiv recording and mixing... Mrs.Fiend and I are finally mixing "One Way Ticket", we'd had all types of technical nightmares with the initial recording - really frustrating, but the track is now ON FIRE !!! I nearly fried my brain working on that song, I woz possessed and lovin' IT, but I had bin at IT non-stop so Mrs.Fiend took over in the driving seat for a while & now she's zombiefied herself 2!!!. This Album is gonna be well trippy, yet Hard + Twisted n'all ! Lots of "IT" Nik Fiend

Nik & Mrs Fiend write :

We would LOVE to release some of our new songs on vinyl - they would sound brilliant - BUT the question is - do you, the fans out there - want to BUY vinyl?? Should we do a single? Or do you just want to download songs?? We know that we have a very broad range of fans from 10 year olds to senior citizens, some of you have been with us since the early 80s & others are newer to the world of Alien Sex Fiend.... & you ALL have different opinions - so we need YOUR help!

Your answers to the 2 following questions will help us to be able to give YOU what YOU want ....

Every person who completes the survey will be put into a draw & the winners will be picked out at random, so every one has a chance of winning one of the 2 special prizes!

THE ALIEN SEX FIEND SURVEY

All entrants will be notified by email whether they have won or not. Winners' first name & country only will be listed on this site. The judges decision will be final, no correspondence will be entered into.

13th Moon Records is our own label, we are not a big organisation.... everything is off our own backs... since the "Information Overload" album was released 5 years ago many things have changed out there.... The record business is in a right old state with companies going under (our old distributor Pinnacle is just one example), record stores closing, downloads, piracy & all that... We're an underground band doing our own thing... so we are somewhat outside of the system... we're not looking at "chart action" (ha!)... Personally, we've had a relapse back to vinyl, we feel the sound is so much better on vinyl ... & SOUND is what we're all about... but do you feel the same way or not?

    FIENDISH STUDIO BLOG - OCTOBER UPDATE




Mrs Fiend and Ol' Nik - Photo credit : Axel

UPDATE 26 October 2009 - Mrs Fiend writes :
Yes we are still recording - which is why I was very busy last update & handed the reins over to Nik cos he was waiting for me to finish some bits off before he could mix the track - it's all going really well right now & we're allowing ourselves to start getting very excited about it.... We reckon it's gonna be a monster, with something for everyone - whether you are an old skool fiend from the early days or whether you are a newer convert with albums like Information Overload... we think this will cause wonderful damage to yer lug 'oles & a much needed brain clear out whilst simultaneously removing yer wig! - heck some of the tracks have even scared US!! heeeeee... it's been a tough road getting this far along - we've had a number of interruptions along the way - but we've stuck at IT & now there's light at the end of the tunnel - yaaay! BUT I heard someone say the other day that "the light at the end of the tunnel usually means that a train is fast approaching" (HA!) thank you, you negative f***! So we ain't counting our squawking chickens just yet... suffice to say that we feel that we're not far off now... & tho we've still got artwork & all that to sort out even after the recording's done so we daren't give yer a release date just yet - keep IT all crossed for us, & with yer collective good will, we can unleash the bugger on you lot as soon as is fiendishly possible!

We managed a visit to see our mates' car "Nosferatu" which we mentioned in the August update & congratulations are due - they are now the fastest door slammer in Europe with a 198mph & 6.91 time! Yaay! We missed them achieving that particular milestone but caught the car's very hairy encounter with the wall - there's a video clip of it up on their website but I tell ya it REALLY doesn't show how very damn scary it was from a spectator's point of view! We held our collective breath while waiting for the car to roll over - BUT the driver - The Fearless Count - showed how truly fearless he is & he tamed the beast to reach the finish line.... the bad news was that Nosferatu had severly damaged bodywork & Vince's fantastic paint job had been completely buggered BUT Nosferatu is the car that wouldn't die! & although it's out of action for a while - it will return!

R.I.P. - BRIAN "RENFIELD" NELSON (ALICE COOPER),
ANDY HUGHES (THE ORB), SKY SAXON (THE SEEDS)


We were extremely sorry to learn of the passing of some of our fellow travellers in the world of music recently....

Firstly - & the best known to us - was Brian "Renfield" Nelson, who had been Alice Cooper's personal assistant & archivist since 1980. He unexpectedly passed away in June whilst working on the European leg of Alice's tour. There is little more information available at this time, except to say that it was a terrible shock for everyone who knew him & that both Brian's family & Alice himself have requested privacy & we are upholding that. All we can say further is a massive big thank you to Brian for always looking after us, above & beyond the call of duty, both during the Nightmare Returns tour when we supported Alice, as well as in recent years during our post-show backstage get-togethers. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him...

Secondly, another shock was hearing of Andy Hughes (ex-The Orb) who passed away aged 44 in June in the UK after a short illness. He was involved in mixing & production on albums such as "Orbus Terrarum" & "Orblivion" & certainly contributed to giving us many happy listening moments....

And thirdly, although we never got to meet him personally, & again in June (what was going on in June???) Sky Saxon, lead singer & bassist of the Los Angeles-based psychedelic 60s garage rock band, The Seeds, also departed this world in Austin, Texas. If you haven't heard of The Seeds you can still find their music - songs such as their (probably) best known single "Pushin' Too Hard" appears on compilations like The Nuggets series, these are corking compilations & are highly recommended.....

All we can do is to thank them all, & send our condolences to their families & friends, & to say that their passing has given us even more impetus to continue to create our own music...... Mrs Fiend & Nik
