The idea is to do work with those "indie rock bands" so they have the ability to sell records and do shows and build a following and an audience. U-2 was an "indie rock band" once... so was Green Day... as was Nirvana.

You have to start somewhere, the object is to help these people build their careers and hope they'll take you along for the ride.

Best of luck with all you do.

Yeah... there are still some rides out there but the bus doesn't run as often or stop as frequently as it used to.

Cut backs and all that.

Peace.

Alright, as promised:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1916553/Sparrows1.wav

Recorded at Avatar, a few background parts back here in Milwaukee, mixed ITB in my bedroom. It's not mastered yet, just a gentle Massey Limiter on the master for some volume.
I'm very much open to critique if you have some!
