<DJBarryHobbit> Yup, the machete made it through customs
believe it or NOT!
<DJBarryHobbit> Don't worry bout it, we make lots of
<GHammerSteve> Fred, should we tell them we've gone
<Sun> we all have moments of typos....we pay no attention
<Fred_Schendel> well you just did ;-)
<zotzz> i love polka music
<GHammerSteve> Yep, we've gone polka.
<Fred_Schendel> I'm working on a mariachi version of
Supper's Ready- no lie
<GHammerSteve> Prog is dead. Long live the polka!
<DJBarryHobbit> Here we go fellas
<Fred_Schendel> Weird Al proved anything works as a
<DJBarryHobbit> The OFFICIAL show
<DJBarryHobbit> Polka kings!
<zotzz> what kind of polka? Polish?
<Fred_Schendel> is there any other kind??
<DJBarryHobbit> Beer Barrel Polka
<Sun> riverdance goes prog....now that's a thought. Can you imagine the dancers trying to keep the beat to prog?
* Keith changes topic to 'Classic Tracks - On Air Now @ www.imaginarydimensions.com'
<GHammerSteve> Hey, that's us!
<GHammerSteve> Aw shucks!
<zotzz> applause please!
<Keith> Yay! Barry's son is home!! woohoo!!
* Sun gets out his guitar and auditions for tuning the guitars
<GHammerSteve> Top ten?
<zotzz> i agree
<Fred_Schendel> *blush blush*
<Fred_Schendel> who's that
<Fred_Schendel> one of those "writer" guys
<GHammerSteve> Tolkien must have written one king?
* Sun has seen the movies lol
<Sun> including yours
<zotzz> journey of the dunadan
<Fred_Schendel> not from us!!
<Fred_Schendel> Drama---> great album
<zotzz> roman solider
* Sun asks a question. They asked Jon Anderson if he was every
going to put the Bible to music before Yes recorded Topographic Tales...so guys when are you doing the Bible?
<zotzz> love the art work on the album
<Fred_Schendel> uh- you take that *lol*
* Sun is goofy so just ignore me ;)
<GHammerSteve> Hmm...Taking on the Bible might be a
bit over our heads.
<GHammerSteve> I might be up for "Leviticus - the musical"
<Fred_Schendel> We tried a small bit of it though
<DJBarryHobbit> Well, the fellas did do David and Goliath!
<zotzz> that sounds good
<Sun> I was more into hearing "End of the World" Revelation
style music....I know you have it in you.
<DJBarryHobbit> And did a fine job of it!
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Tales Of The Great Wars
* Sun agrees
<GHammerSteve> Who has heard David and Goliath?
<DJBarryHobbit> I will be bouncing back and forth fellas
* Sun has it
<DJBarryHobbit> I have David and Goliath!
<DJBarryHobbit> Gotta say hi to my son!
<Fred_Schendel> it was a try at a different market-
that always gets us in trouble :-(
<GHammerSteve> Hey, better check him over for leeches.
<DJBarryHobbit> Levels good fellas!
<Sun> You know better than to listen to critics
<zotzz> yes, levels are great
<GHammerSteve> fine here
<Fred_Schendel> I wasn't the critics... it's the industry..
uh, should we go down this road *g*
<Sun> I'd like to hear your opinion, sure.
<DJBarryHobbit> The industry is a ruff place for sure
<DJBarryHobbit> Are you referring to the music industry
<GHammerSteve> What was the original question?
<Sun> They didn't want you to do it because there wasn't
a market for sales?
<GHammerSteve> Oh - Julie is filling me in.
<GHammerSteve> The industry LOVED it, but told us to
'dumb it down'.
<Fred_Schendel> I implied that D&G had troubles
because of it's attempt to connect with the "Christian Market"
<GHammerSteve> That would be Provident Music.
<DJBarryHobbit> Ah, Provident
<Fred_Schendel> accck-- typos abound
<GHammerSteve> They said it was brilliant, and encouraged
<GHammerSteve> Then dumped on it.
<Fred_Schendel> much will be said someday in an appropriate
<Sun> lol figures
<DJBarryHobbit> Well there are some good folks in the
industry, but there are a lot of "market" issues
<GHammerSteve> Too smart for the CCM market.
<DJBarryHobbit> And of course, most Christian labels
are owned by mainstream companies
<DJBarryHobbit> Who are mostly just interested in $$$$
<DJBarryHobbit> As any label
<GHammerSteve> Plenty of good folks, not many brave
<Sun> Some prog is slowly easing it's way in the Christian
<Fred_Schendel> it was a fun thing to do but I get more
from doing stuff like Lex Rex myself *g*
<DJBarryHobbit> And not very artist friendly, right?
<GHammerSteve> But who am I to say. We loved D&G, but we wrote it.
<DJBarryHobbit> I love it too!
<DJBarryHobbit> OK, I like this part
<Sun> I have read reviews comparing Glass Hammer to
70's style Yes in it's complexity and feel...good company there!
<DJBarryHobbit> Gettin into some wicked keys here dat
* GHfan_Sam has joined #dimensions
<DJBarryHobbit> Welcome Sam
<Sun> Hi Sam
<Fred_Schendel> I never complain about comparisons like
<zotzz> hi sam
<GHfan_Sam> :) hiho
<GHammerSteve> My favorite music - early Yes.
<DJBarryHobbit> Saw ya earlier, but got in too late
to say hi to ya!
<GHammerSteve> Sam runs GHfan.net.
<Fred_Schendel> hi Sam!!
<Sun> Same here Steve
<GHammerSteve> Hey Sam :)
* Sun is a Yes Freak
<GHfan_Sam> mae govannen, elf friends
<Fred_Schendel> I haven't done the music yet--- I'm

<DJBarryHobbit> Really...you guys like YES? Never woulda guessed!!!=)
<GHammerSteve> Sam actually speaks Elven. Or is it Elvish?
<DJBarryHobbit> Ahhh, elvish!
<DJBarryHobbit> Love it!
<Fred_Schendel> yeah, its a shocker isn't it *lol*
<GHfan_Sam> Elvish - quenya
<GHfan_Sam> i'm not so good with sindarin though :-p
<DJBarryHobbit> Sam, U rock
<DJBarryHobbit> Glad to have ya
<DJBarryHobbit> I am the DJ
<DJBarryHobbit> And the Hobbit tonight
<GHfan_Sam> Hi. :)
<Fred_Schendel> this is my Pat Moraz homage
<DJBarryHobbit> IN honor of our friends
<DJBarryHobbit> Better than Moraz!!! HOHOHO!
<DJBarryHobbit> Barry is gushing, sorry!
<Fred_Schendel> well, let's not go to far!
<Fred_Schendel> pat was great- I wish he'd do more these days
<DJBarryHobbit> Almost banjo-ish there
<GHammerSteve> Vocal effects created in Video Vegas.
<DJBarryHobbit> Cool part!
<Fred_Schendel> or anything, actually. The Moody Blues burned him out or something
<DJBarryHobbit> Nice geetar
<GHammerSteve> For those who'd like to know??
<Fred_Schendel> that was a mandolin
<DJBarryHobbit> ahhhhh, cool!
I'm always interested in that sort of thing
<DJBarryHobbit> Who played it?
<GHfan_Sam> the recorder rocks! ^_^
<Sun> nice....I have one of those but barely know the
<GHammerSteve> Fred plays everything - sometimes.
<GHfan_Sam> except bass, right?
<Fred_Schendel> I played the small mandolin part and
the recorder... I play lots of things semi-competently *lol*
<GHammerSteve> Oh, he does let me play bass.
<GHfan_Sam> i still stand in awe every time i listen
<Fred_Schendel> and keys... and write all those words
<DJBarryHobbit> Good info
the words! gotta love those words
<GHammerSteve> True - it is all me when you get right
down to i.
<DJBarryHobbit> The song that got me into Glass Hammer!
<Fred_Schendel> Steve is the grand conceptualist of
<zotzz> i know nothing about playing music, all i can
say is that you guys satisfy my taste for great prog music
<DJBarryHobbit> Drama era yes!
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - One King
<GHammerSteve> Grand conceptualist? Cool!
<GHfan_Sam> Steve is the Tolkien of the music world
<GHammerSteve> I'm going to print that somewhere.
<DJBarryHobbit> Ohhh, I like that
<GHfan_Sam> another cool way of putting it.
<DJBarryHobbit> The elder led him wrong, how sad!
<Fred_Schendel> i had always thought of the organ as
Wakeman-ish... but the vocals, yeah-- you're right
<GHfan_Sam> And that's pretty strong coming from me,
considering i speak quenya
<GHammerSteve> The elder is 'the god of war.'
<Sun> I was going to mention that on Chronometree "A
Perfect Carousel" is a great segue into "Chronos Deliverer". I love listening
to those two songs back to back.
<DJBarryHobbit> Ares messin wid his mind
<DJBarryHobbit> That danged Ares
<GHfan_Sam> what's he got against the poor dude anyway?
<GHammerSteve> Sun, we're actually playing Chronos Deliverer
<GHammerSteve> The elder? He's a road block on the path to glory.

<Keith> Hey Mike
<GHammerSteve> Hi Mike
<DJBarryHobbit> Welcome Mike
<zotzz> hi mikey
<Mike> Hello gang!
<Sun> Are you playing in the Nashville area anytime

<Fred_Schendel> hellooooooo Mike *g*
<Sun> Hi Mike
<DJBarryHobbit> We have Fred and Steve from Glass Hammer
with us tonight!
<GHfan_Sam> mae govannen!
<Mike> Wow...hey Guys!
<Fred_Schendel> 70 *lol*
<GHammerSteve> We just did a show there last June.
* Sun missed it sadly enough.
<Fred_Schendel> we played our first warm-up show there
<GHammerSteve> We're doing a Chattanooga show in late
<Sun> just a few miles down the road
<GHfan_Sam> ...and there was much rejoicing
<Fred_Schendel> it was quite fun
<GHammerSteve> Sam sang in our NEARfest choir.
<Fred_Schendel> Steve still has hearing loss from it
* Mike realizes why automated page didn't swap
<GHfan_Sam> and it was SOOO COOOL!!!
Can't hear you?
<DJBarryHobbit> I heard the NEARFest show was great
trenton has joined #dimensions
* trenton has left #dimensions
<DJBarryHobbit> And you had a special guest
* Sun hopes that isn't a spammer
<GHfan_Sam> Very, very much so
<GHammerSteve> Yes, Rich Williams of Kansas joined us
for a song.
<Fred_Schendel> it was a lot of fun- there were some
technical glitches (as always) but it came off quite well
<DJBarryHobbit> Man, how cool is DAT!
<Fred_Schendel> that's what I said!! *lol*
<GHfan_Sam> and i got to be onstage with gh and rich
<GHammerSteve> It was the coolest. I looked over and saw Rich, then looked back behind me and saw our choir.
* Sun read about the glitches...some people aren't happy unless
they slam someone.
<GHammerSteve> A dream come true!
<DJBarryHobbit> What didja play with him?
<Fred_Schendel> Portrait (He Knew)
<GHammerSteve> Well, there were 3 standing ovations
- and all were standing.
<DJBarryHobbit> One of me favorites!
<GHammerSteve> Of course, 2 were for Rich.
<GHfan_Sam> you deserved them though anyway
<Fred_Schendel> me and Walter had done it for years-
never thinking we'd play it with someone from Kansas!!!
<GHammerSteve> We really didn't get a sound check, as
Sam can attest to.
<DJBarryHobbit> I have seen some great pics
<DJBarryHobbit> From the show
<GHfan_Sam> yeah, it was pretty bad...
<GHammerSteve> We're hoping to film the show for a DVD
<GHfan_Sam> the sound check, i mean
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Further Up And Further In
<GHammerSteve> The next show that is.
* Sun is looking forward to a live DVD
<GHfan_Sam> And there was much rejoicing....
<GHammerSteve> All of you should come to the show!
<GHfan_Sam> I am totally dragging my dad...
<GHfan_Sam> ...i hope
<Mike> When is this show...
<Fred_Schendel> yep, you get one more chance ;-)

<Fred_Schendel> my cat might take some lint though

23 hour trip on the bus...
<GHammerSteve> Anyone recognize the title "Further up
and Further in?
<GHfan_Sam> CS Lewis!

* ID-Amy is now known as Mike_
<Fred_Schendel> I'm embarrassed

<GHfan_Sam> hopefully i don't annoy people too much...
when there's not lyrics to sing to, i even will hum along with the synthesizers and any sort of other music!
* Mike_ is now known as Mike_n_Amy
<DJBarryHobbit> Look at the warrior, he's dropped his
<DJBarryHobbit> I LOVE that part
<GHammerSteve> He fell for a goddess!
<GHfan_Sam> * suddenly reminded of David and Goliath...
<DJBarryHobbit> Danged Ares and danged Goddesses
<GHammerSteve> Written about the same time.

<GHfan_Sam> I also sing along with the bass part sometimes...
<DJBarryHobbit> Whoa, I can play E!
<GHammerSteve> Carrie Streets on vocals
<GHfan_Sam> i always wondered!
<DJBarryHobbit> Nice multi-layer vox!
<GHammerSteve> David's wife (of D&G)
<GHfan_Sam> i figured it was sarah or something
* Sun bangs his head to the drums....that is why I don't make
a lot of sense at times
<GHammerSteve> 4 string bass again
<GHfan_Sam> so what does sarah sing then?
<Sun> nice piano ;)
<Fred_Schendel> an impossible piano part *g*
<Sun> no kidding
<Fred_Schendel> it's sped up just a *bit*
<GHammerSteve> She does all of the parts on Centurion,
the soprano on WWWYoung, and one solo on Tales.
<Sun> tricks of the studio?
<Fred_Schendel> then I had to play it live- D'oh!! *lol*
<GHfan_Sam> the "i will lead the charge"?
<GHammerSteve> That's her.
<GHfan_Sam> I see
<DJBarryHobbit> My favorite keys here
<DJBarryHobbit> Great lick!
<Fred_Schendel> just to get it so clean sounding...
see, you guys are learning all the tricks now ;-)
<GHammerSteve> David Carter on guitar.
<DJBarryHobbit> I like this
<GHammerSteve> Hammond of course.
<Fred_Schendel> I like this part- it actually reminds
me of the band Discipline trying to sound like Genesis *lol*
<GHammerSteve> Boring for the bassist though!
<GHfan_Sam> i was so proud when i finally figured out
what freed was singing in the background...
<Fred_Schendel> David Carter on guitar starting HERE
<GHammerSteve> What is it?
<GHfan_Sam> "further up"
<GHfan_Sam> like the title....
<GHfan_Sam> you know?
<GHfan_Sam> *hangs head*
<GHammerSteve> Right you are.
<GHfan_Sam> not too good with picking out lyrics
<GHfan_Sam> a little bit slow
<Fred_Schendel> the title of the song had to be in there
<GHfan_Sam> Of course
<GHammerSteve> It was in there earlier!
<GHfan_Sam> Hey, i actually knew that too!
<GHfan_Sam> "so his .... turned from men, further up
and further in"
<GHfan_Sam> forgot a word there
<Fred_Schendel> well yeah, but this is beating it with
<GHfan_Sam> But that line always makes me wince
<GHammerSteve> Right :)
<DJBarryHobbit> Nice end to this song
* Sun wants to ask a techie question....what processing do
you use on the electric guitars?
in? those don't rhyme!
<GHammerSteve> It ain't over yet though!
<Fred_Schendel> dynamics--- yay us *lol*
<GHammerSteve> tremolo on the bass
<DJBarryHobbit> Nice "wind down"...that better?
<GHammerSteve> Gotcha :)
<Fred_Schendel> usually a little pedal from Digitech-
we don't use amps much anymore in the studio
<Sun> all direct to disc?
<Fred_Schendel> can't remember the model offhand
<Sun> no preamps?
<GHammerSteve> Sans amp on the bass.
direct inject. technology has made it possible *g*
Now Playing: CTraxGrandCanyon
<Sun> do you process it once it is on disc?
<Fred_Schendel> actually, we did mic an amp on the bass
for this album... we didn't use it much
* Sun is trying to learn the tricks
<GHfan_Sam> no more gh music? ;_;
<GHammerSteve> Two cabinets - the sun and a 15 wasn't
* Sun chants Chronometree!!!
<GHfan_Sam> Thank you!
<GHammerSteve> Three channels of bass to choose from
in the mix.
<Fred_Schendel> but there is so much good amp modeling
stuff on the market now... everything can be simulated
* Sun settles for what secrets of the studio he can squeeze
out of you great musicians
<GHammerSteve> Its all in the ears :)
<GHammerSteve> That would be me.
<GHfan_Sam> is there an echo?
<Sun> who can afford a mellotron...lol
<Fred_Schendel> you could buy a Guitar Pod and a bass
pod from Line 6 and you're set to record bass and guitars, Sun *g*
<Sun> or find one for that matter
<Fred_Schendel> they do every classic sound
<GHammerSteve> We had fun with that!
<Sun> a line 6 amp...almost bought one
<Sun> effects built in
<GHammerSteve> Its Tronolicious!
<Fred_Schendel> should we tell him *g*
<GHammerSteve> Kick backs for Barry!
<zotzz> buy all their stufffffffff
<GHammerSteve> Kick backs for zotzz.
<GHammerSteve> Were currently writing more Tolkien music.
<GHammerSteve> My wife is a Boromir girl.
<Fred_Schendel> it all started with the Tolkien stuff...
<DJBarryHobbit> Sorry, I'm nervous
<DJBarryHobbit> gushing a little
<GHfan_Sam> A Boromir girl? Ooo
<GHfan_Sam> You're doing fine
<GHammerSteve> Oh - and a Faramir girl as well.
<DJBarryHobbit> I want to do a phone interview as well
<GHfan_Sam> He's awesome!
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Intermission
<Fred_Schendel> all the -mirs...
<DJBarryHobbit> And I will settle down a bit!
<GHfan_Sam> Except for the PJ one... :(
<DJBarryHobbit> Of course Aragorn is played by Viggo
<GHammerSteve> We'll do a phone interview. We love to wisecrack though - just a warning.
<GHfan_Sam> *sam tries to dig up some strange silmarillion
-mir name but can't remember any others*
<DJBarryHobbit> I have lost my mind
<GHfan_Sam> :-p *hack*
<GHfan_Sam> I hate Viggo.
<GHammerSteve> Viggo apparently doesn't like America
- or so I heard.
wise cracking phone interview!!! more stuff to look forward to!
<GHammerSteve> And yet, we're employing him :)
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Music For Four Hands (And Temporal Anomaly)
<GHfan_Sam> "no blood for oil" -lol
<Fred_Schendel> well, he's a flakey guy in real life
from what I've read but he's a good Aragorn
<DJBarryHobbit> My wife likes Viggo as Aragorn
<GHfan_Sam> he's way better than liv tyler, that
* Sun even has The Wyzards that Steve was a part of long ago
<GHammerSteve> Right on the oil. Just try driving to work without it!
<GHfan_Sam> s for sure...
<DJBarryHobbit> But not really Viggo politically or
<Fred_Schendel> I do wish PJ hadn't made the character
quite so... conflicted...
<DJBarryHobbit> Wyzards is the only thing I need to
<GHfan_Sam> I totally agree!
<GHammerSteve> Wyzards has some good moments.
<GHfan_Sam> "i don't want to be a king... *sniff sniff*"
<DJBarryHobbit> PJ did add a lot of stuff 4 sure
<GHammerSteve> There's an 'epic' that was fun to write.
<DJBarryHobbit> But still think he did an admirable
<Fred_Schendel> well, we could nitpick the movies but
that's not why we're here *lol* PJ's doing a great job
<GHfan_Sam> I agree
<GHfan_Sam> Sam rocks!
<GHfan_Sam> That's all that matters, right? ;)
<GHfan_Sam> no, jk
<DJBarryHobbit> Nice PEEEano here
* Sun chants Chronometree!!! next!!!

away with the next release.
<GHammerSteve> I'm serious.
<GHammerSteve> Okay, no I'm not.
Lint for sam!
<Fred_Schendel> hey, maybe that should be the name...
<GHfan_Sam> I'll hang it up in my locker!
<DJBarryHobbit> So fellas, I shoulda played Chronometree
after this rather than ArkAngel
<Fred_Schendel> it's very post-modern
<GHfan_Sam> the more gh the better
<GHfan_Sam> s always the rule
<GHammerSteve> Well, I started to suggest that, but
<Sun> Do you have a working name for the next release?
<DJBarryHobbit> *Barry could do a last minute programming
<DJBarryHobbit> I AM DJ BarryHobbit
<Fred_Schendel> we.... might
<GHammerSteve> Yes - the name of the album is:
<GHfan_Sam> *drum roll*
* Sun listens closely for the scoop
<Fred_Schendel> well, there ya go *g*
<GHammerSteve> Well Fred, I guess that settles it.
<GHfan_Sam> I feel privileged!
<GHammerSteve> Weve anguished over the title, more than
<GHammerSteve> You are the first to know.
<Sun> I did say working title...so I will understand
if you guys change it.
<GHammerSteve> Go forth and spread the good tidings.
<zotzz> like the title
<Fred_Schendel> no, I think that's it
<GHfan_Sam> I will post it on my site!
Sun spreads the butter
<GHammerSteve> Don't give us a way out!
<GHfan_Sam> as we speak!
<Fred_Schendel> we just needed someone to go "yay" *lol*
<GHfan_Sam> m good at doing that!
<GHammerSteve> Other titles were - "Album of the Year",
<GHfan_Sam> s my specialty
<Fred_Schendel> and "Lint"
<Sun> it may be the album of the year anyway
<GHfan_Sam> i did like Lint...
<zotzz> keep the shadowland title
<GHammerSteve> It is not "The Return of Lex Rex". It isn't a concept album :)
<GHfan_Sam> no big story
<GHfan_Sam> but i guess a bunch of little stories can
be good as well...
<DJBarryHobbit> OK folks, programming change in honor
of our special guests
<GHammerSteve> How do you follow the last story?
* Sun wants to hear the story behind the album...big or not?
<DJBarryHobbit> We will be playing Chronometree in its
* Sun chants Chronometree!!! next!!!
<Fred_Schendel> it sounds somewhat Lexy-Rexy.... hopefully
a bit better but you'll all have to be the judge of that!
<GHammerSteve> Well, these are individual songs.
<GHfan_Sam> better than lex rex will probably cause
many circuits of mine to completely short
<Fred_Schendel> I even wrote some words...
<GHammerSteve> 2 or 3 introspective things, one 'prayer'
called "Farewell to Shadowlands",
<GHfan_Sam> i honestly cannot fathom that
<GHammerSteve> and a tale from the Napoloenic wars.
<Sun> I just love the complex prog music of Glass Hammer.....it
is rare today.
<GHfan_Sam> (i mean i can't fathom being better than
lex rex, not i can't fathom that stuff steve was saying)
<Fred_Schendel> well, we 're always into what we're
doing NOW, we can't be objective
<GHammerSteve> I agree though, it sounds better than
<GHfan_Sam> **bouncing up and down** YAY!
<GHammerSteve> Better equipment now.
<GHammerSteve> And thanks for playing Chronometree.
<Fred_Schendel> yes indeed!!
<GHfan_Sam> (see, i am professional "yay-sayer"!, no? watch the art with which i insert my exclamation points!)
<GHfan_Sam> I havent listened to chronometree yet today...
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Centurion
<Fred_Schendel> the check's in the mail Sam ;-)
<GHfan_Sam> of my very own?
<GHfan_Sam> oh please, please?
<GHammerSteve> Sarah on the vocals...coming up.
<Fred_Schendel> Xebo approved Lint!
<Mike_n_Amy> dryer lint?...or Bellybutton Lint?
<GHammerSteve> Buried in the background of course.
<GHfan_Sam> I can never make out what she
<GHfan_Sam> s saying
<Fred_Schendel> behind-the-couch lint
<GHammerSteve> 8 string bass again.
<GHfan_Sam> although i think i can hear "for unto us
a child is born a song is given....
<GHammerSteve> Love that 8 string.
<Sun> oh cool...might be a piece of candy or old popcorn
mixed in there
<GHfan_Sam> 'and the spear of the roman pierced holy
flesh" but that's it
<GHfan_Sam> oh, popcorn is indeed wonderful
<Mike_n_Amy> I love commentaries during music...
<GHammerSteve> Well, thats enough I suppose.
<GHfan_Sam> Im going to go wait in front of my mailbox
<GHammerSteve> There she is.
<GHfan_Sam> then again, steve, this is the Lyrically
<GHammerSteve> That's why we print the lyrics :)
<Mike_n_Amy> Neal Morse did that during the "Snow" premiere,
it was a hoot!
<Fred_Schendel> We thought it would be fun to do an
"old-school" instrumental song, or I did... that was the idea behind this
* Sun loves the chorus work...sounds quite like a small choir
<GHammerSteve> One girl, many tracks.
<Sun> better than the mellotron choir...she rocks
<Fred_Schendel> and then some more atonal stuff than
the rest of the album for the more hard-core proggers ;-)
<GHammerSteve> She really is good. I've worked with her since she was 15.
<GHammerSteve> She's just 20 now I think.
<GHammerSteve> Met her at church.
<GHfan_Sam> cool :)
<GHfan_Sam> did she sing in the church music group or
<GHammerSteve> Sang in the choir.
<GHammerSteve> She's in a couple of bands now, ours
<GHammerSteve> Background noise is from David and Goliath.
<Sun> I was about to ask
<GHfan_Sam> i was wondering about that!
<GHfan_Sam> what part?
* Sun could not make out what was being said
<GHammerSteve> Shamah I think. It happens during Further Up too.
<GHfan_Sam> (my bros were listening to that this week - they like it a lot, but i think they still love man in the woods more...)
<GHammerSteve> Near the beginning. Zeru and Goliath I think.
<Fred_Schendel> i was just meant to be muttering...
<GHfan_Sam> Ok, shamah is who? Fred? or Brad?
<GHfan_Sam> I always get them mixed up
<GHfan_Sam> wait... fred is abner?
<GHfan_Sam> Got it then.
<GHammerSteve> Fred is Abner and Abinidab.
<Sun> like the voices in my head Fred...please make
<GHammerSteve> Actually Zeru says "Where is he going
Father", before Further Up.
<GHfan_Sam> Oh adam, come here... ABNER!!!
<GHfan_Sam> hee hee hee
<Fred_Schendel> just hit yourself until they don't bother
you anymore ;-)
<GHammerSteve> I thought it kinda made sense.
<GHfan_Sam> Yeah, that
<GHfan_Sam> 's cool
* Keith has joined #dimensions
* ChanServ sets mode: +o Keith
<Fred_Schendel> and there's a "Good Night" in there
* Sun takes Fred's advice....
<GHfan_Sam> (I did hear that!
<Sun> I love this part
<GHfan_Sam> Go me!
<Fred_Schendel> nooooooo I was kidding *g*
<GHammerSteve> Kinda Somnambulist like?
<Sun> This was the "end of the world" type of stuff
<GHfan_Sam> somewhere in here i always think it's switching
to "wwwy" and i get all confused. even though i listen to this album about every day so i should know better... :-p
<GHammerSteve> That's Somnambulist!
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - When We Were Young
<GHammerSteve> It would be neat to do the soundtrack
for 'the end of the world'.
<Mike_n_Amy> Amy wonders who's a Buddhist...
<Sun> please do!
<Fred_Schendel> Somnambulist are gooderns
<GHammerSteve> Presbyterian here.
<GHfan_Sam> roman catholic for me
<GHfan_Sam> ..just in case anyone cares.
<Sun> nice to know :)
<GHammerSteve> We're watching you Sam.
<DJBarryHobbit> I like the singing here
<DJBarryHobbit> Coming up...
<GHfan_Sam> **looks around, paranoid*
<GHfan_Sam> I love it!!!!
<GHammerSteve> Steve sings first, then Fred.
* Sun is a pagan....just kidding
<DJBarryHobbit> We care
<GHfan_Sam> This song... *sigh* love it SO much!
<Fred_Schendel> I'm just a tiny bit on this one
<zotzz> agnostic here, not kidding
<GHfan_Sam> Tied with two others for #1 best ever song
in the world!
<GHammerSteve> We're watching you too then zotzz! lol
<DJBarryHobbit> Cool singing NOW!
<GHammerSteve> That's a mellotron!
<GHfan_Sam> the coolest part comes a little later, but
this part is cool as well, beyond all doubt....
<GHfan_Sam> *singing along*
<GHammerSteve> Here's me...
<Fred_Schendel> there's a song about that on the next
album... at least acknowledging the question is the first step *g*
<GHfan_Sam> Go steve!
<Fred_Schendel> accckk ackowlto acnowk-- you get the idea *lol*
<GHammerSteve> Fred here .... I made him sing it 4 times. He got mad!
<GHfan_Sam> ha ha
<GHammerSteve> He's usually a one take singer.
<GHfan_Sam> Well, only the best, right? and it sounds awesome!
<DJBarryHobbit> I like the singing
<DJBarryHobbit> Male and female!
<GHammerSteve> I'm a ten take singer.
<Fred_Schendel> I did??
I should have done it more
<GHfan_Sam> heh... i'm like... 20?
<DJBarryHobbit> Nice keys here
<GHfan_Sam> and still not good?
<GHammerSteve> Ah - at last I'm on the keys.
<GHfan_Sam> best part!!
<GHfan_Sam> well, one of the best parts....
<GHammerSteve> Until the hammond solo that is.
<GHfan_Sam> i prefer vocals usually...
<zotzz> Barry, how am i going to follow your radio program
tonight! After having 2 members of glass hammer, and 2 classic GH albums
<GHammerSteve> A bath?
<GHfan_Sam> the Silmarillion!
<GHfan_Sam> read it!
<Fred_Schendel> a Steve solo
<zotzz> i took a bath 2 hours ago
<GHammerSteve> Fred on the Hammond.
<GHfan_Sam> better read the Sil then
<GHammerSteve> Sam, I wrote one about Glaurung today.
<GHfan_Sam> what about?
<Fred_Schendel> this part is sooooooo dang fast when
we do it live *lol*
<GHfan_Sam> turin included?
<GHfan_Sam> BEST PART!
<GHammerSteve> He dreams of slaying Turin.
<GHfan_Sam> No.... skipping!!!
<GHfan_Sam> Oh that is going to be awesome!!
<GHammerSteve> Fred on the moog.
<GHfan_Sam> K sorry, talking to myself and then you....
<Fred_Schendel> it's the hip-hop remix
<DJBarryHobbit> Heh Hip hop
<GHfan_Sam> that would be bad
<GHfan_Sam> i hate hip hot just about as much as i hate
<GHammerSteve> 8 string :)
<DJBarryHobbit> GH Hip Hoppin in the hizzouse
<GHammerSteve> Steve sings.
<DJBarryHobbit> I have Artifact
<DJBarryHobbit> Sang it Steve
<Fred_Schendel> the prizzouse *g*
<GHammerSteve> Then sings, Steve, Fred, Robert, Carrie
<GHfan_Sam> *singing along still*
<DJBarryHobbit> I'm singing over here
<Fred_Schendel> this is the culmination of my Steve
Howe fetish, so-to-speak *lol*
<GHammerSteve> Fun to do this live!
<GHfan_Sam> no kidding!!
<Sun> use the steel with an old echoplex on the next
<Fred_Schendel> when I get an electric sitar i will
<GHammerSteve> Get one!
<Fred_Schendel> I'd love to get another Echoplex- I
need to check E-bay
<Sun> oh yeah....coral electric sitar
<GHfan_Sam> **blissful sigh**
<Fred_Schendel> Line 6 makes a modeler of that too *lol*
<zotzz> that would be cool
<Sun> I had one too long ago
<GHammerSteve> Here, in the live show , we break into
Heaven from Perelandra.
<Fred_Schendel> but the real ones are awesome. i used to have a Guild Copycat- similar idea
<DJBarryHobbit> I like the dramatic FX in the background
<GHfan_Sam> throw off the chains for the mortal is done
away! her heart is breaking, for joy unknown!
<GHfan_Sam> Some of my favorite lyrics ever from you
<Fred_Schendel> but you could splice your own tape for
it- no cartridges
<GHfan_Sam> and anyone else, for that matter
<GHammerSteve> Goliath in the background here I think
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Goodnight
<GHammerSteve> And a hobbit from the M.E. Album is laughing
in the background.
<GHfan_Sam> it all becomes clear!
<DJBarryHobbit> Funky dramatic FX
<Fred_Schendel> sorry- tech babble *g*
<DJBarryHobbit> Good night!
* Sun had one of the big Roland Chorus Echo units too but
the Echoplex had a longer delay if I remember correctly
<GHammerSteve> I have fun doing these little bits of
<GHfan_Sam> I can tell! ;)
<Fred_Schendel> and the slide-lever- that was the key!
<DJBarryHobbit> *Barry did not here Heroes and Dragons
the first few times I heard Lex Rex*
* Sun loves the tech babble
<DJBarryHobbit> I thought the CD was over
<GHfan_Sam> second song tired for #1 song in the universe...
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Heroes And Dragons
<GHfan_Sam> I love this one so much
<GHammerSteve> Did your copy skip? Some did.
<Fred_Schendel> we'll start a GH tech-babble forum *g*
<DJBarryHobbit> No skips
<DJBarryHobbit> Like this song a lot
<Sun> would love it
<DJBarryHobbit> kinda ELP-ish
<GHammerSteve> This was written, lyrics first.
<GHammerSteve> Only one on the album.
<GHfan_Sam> fred, your voice is so perfect for this
song - glad you didn't go with that other guy
<Fred_Schendel> tech-tip: we always mic acoustic guitar-
<GHfan_Sam> the lyrics are the COOLEST!!!!!
<GHammerSteve> Thanks :)
<GHfan_Sam> I wrote them down and made a whole bunch
of people read them
<GHfan_Sam> they were all impressed
<Fred_Schendel> awwww. thanks *blush*
<GHammerSteve> Hope our agnostic friend read them! lol
<GHammerSteve> Well, we have just blabbed and blabbed!
<GHfan_Sam> They are totally tolkien level of awesomeness!
<DJBarryHobbit> Great message in this song!
what else are you supposed to do?
<DJBarryHobbit> Put down the dragon!
<GHfan_Sam> in a chat room?
<GHammerSteve> I think it was important to end on this
<GHammerSteve> Inspired by a chapter from "Wild at Heart".
<GHfan_Sam> What's that?
<Sun> mankind has fallen and can't get up
<GHfan_Sam> **more resonations for sam**
<GHammerSteve> Wild at Heart is a 'men's book' by Eldridge.
<Fred_Schendel> good one Sun ;-)
<GHfan_Sam> aaah! *near heart attack from sudden talking*
<GHammerSteve> Christian book, new.
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - Good Evening
<Sun> aww fanks
<GHfan_Sam> enjoyed it?
<GHfan_Sam> lol ;)
<GHammerSteve> Great radio voice.
<GHfan_Sam> hear hear!
<Sun> I told him he could go pro at a station
<Sun> he does have the voice
<GHammerSteve> one is out of print though :(
<GHfan_Sam> hee hee hee :) *more warm fuzzies*
* Sun throws in some more lint so you can release it again....since
you are talking about fuzzies
<Fred_Schendel> I'd kind of like to hear that ;-)
<GHfan_Sam> Fuzzies unite!
<GHfan_Sam> me too, but chronometree rocks more.
<GHammerSteve> Mike, what's for dinner?
<Mike_n_Amy> Shepherds Pie!!!!
<GHammerSteve> First Christian CD?
<GHfan_Sam> does it have lint?
<GHammerSteve> I'll have a talk with Neal!
<GHfan_Sam> Christian is universal truth...
<GHfan_Sam> i mean, lotr and the silmarillion are the
huge epic Christian fantasies...
* Sun is proud of Tennessee prog
<zotzz> plug ftt to the guys
<GHfan_Sam> I know
<GHfan_Sam> for me, conversation is in the background
<Sun> Can we have another Yah!
<Fred_Schendel> this is an album about an organ sound
<GHfan_Sam> Ill be talking, and then suddenly stop so
i can sting along to my favorite part, and then resume my sentence later...
<GHammerSteve> We're hard on ourselves as vocalists.
<GHammerSteve> AIR EON
<GHfan_Sam> ah, but you're getting more and more awesome
all the time!
<Fred_Schendel> the discovery of The Sound led to the
<Fred_Schendel> in large part
<GHfan_Sam> oooh, i'm getting excited...
<DJBarryHobbit> Air Eon
<DJBarryHobbit> Got it!
<DJBarryHobbit> Enuff wid da yakkin
<Sun> backwards sounding guitar...very cool
<DJBarryHobbit> Time for da jams
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - All In Good Time - Empty Space / Revealer
<Fred_Schendel> the beginning is the end... backwards
<GHfan_Sam> ghfan.net update for the album title!
<GHfan_Sam> Yes, aristotle..... O.o
<Sun> thanks for the little tidbit of info :)
<GHammerSteve> Jump on it Sam.
<Fred_Schendel> this sounds nothing like Tarkus, BTW
<GHammerSteve> Fred ROCKS!
<GHfan_Sam> i love this album.
<GHammerSteve> Arjen ROCKS!
<GHammerSteve> Arjen Lucassen from Holland.
<Fred_Schendel> yeah he did
<GHammerSteve> 4 string bass with an octave box.
<Fred_Schendel> there are about 5 guitarists on this
album-- each did something very cool in their style
<GHfan_Sam> *is very tempted to sing along to the instruments*
<GHfan_Sam> Awesome bass
<Fred_Schendel> this album was a change from fake organ
on the earlier albums back to the real thing... what a difference...
<GHammerSteve> We really liked Brad. A controversial choice however.
<GHfan_Sam> I don't really like brad's voice, but it
is totally perfect for this album. awesome.
<GHfan_Sam> that was scary
<Sun> you used samplers?
<GHfan_Sam> i wrote that before you said that, steve
<GHammerSteve> That's the point I think. It fit the album for us.
<GHfan_Sam> same thought waves
<GHfan_Sam> i can't imagine anyone else singing here
<Fred_Schendel> It was a Korg 01/W with a patch i did
myself on the earlier albums
<GHammerSteve> Great minds you know.
<GHfan_Sam> natrlich :)
<GHammerSteve> Mike, email me a piece of Shepherd's
<Fred_Schendel> We thought Brad had a 70's vibe which
was the idea behind the album
<GHammerSteve> Well, we thought so.
<GHfan_Sam> sam thinks so too
<GHammerSteve> He is a truly talented song writer.
<GHfan_Sam> i don't like perfect carousel
<GHammerSteve> He wrote Perfect Carousel.
<GHfan_Sam> to be honest
* Sun does
<GHfan_Sam> i know
<Fred_Schendel> We thought he sounded more emotional
than we might
<GHammerSteve> It was one of the most popular songs
<Sun> it fits right in nicely like I mentioned before
<GHfan_Sam> yeah it does, and i can't see chronometree
without it, but i dont like it that much
<Mike_n_Amy> we'll bring you some on Sept 22nd, Steve!
<GHammerSteve> Bag it up and come on down!
<Fred_Schendel> this is me and terry Clouse from Somnambulist
<GHammerSteve> Terry ROCKS!
<GHfan_Sam> I love this song
<GHfan_Sam> ...and the next song.... and the next song...
and the next song... and the next song...
<GHfan_Sam> but not the next one!
<Fred_Schendel> see- this is the intro the right way
<DJBarryHobbit> Sam, you must be a fan?
<DJBarryHobbit> How do you say Glass Hammer in Elvish?
<GHfan_Sam> I only listen to lex rex every day, made
a whole fan website, and do all sorts of other gh terrorist type of activities
<GHfan_Sam> sindarin or quenya?
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - All In Good Time - An Eldritch Wind
<Fred_Schendel> this song has an instrument we've never
used any other time to date:
<GHfan_Sam> in sindarin, Heled Dring
<Fred_Schendel> the autoharp
<Mike_n_Amy> I was going to see GH at DragonCon a few
years ago, but someone hurt themselves and it got cancelled!
<Fred_Schendel> ahh- gotcha ;-)
<Fred_Schendel> gotcha I mean- we don't use it because
it takes to long to tune
<DJBarryHobbit> Heled Dring!
<GHammerSteve> I sprained my wrist one year and played
<GHammerSteve> Not an option for Fred.
<GHfan_Sam> hyell namba
<GHammerSteve> Sorry :(
<DJBarryHobbit> El Glasso Hammero
<DJBarryHobbit> La Glass Hammera
<Mike_n_Amy> 2001? you guys played?
<GHfan_Sam> Cuio annan Heled Dring!
<DJBarryHobbit> El Hammero Glasso
<GHfan_Sam> A good phrase for all gh fans to know: "long
live glass hammer"
<GHammerSteve> Well, I think it was 97 or 98.
<Mike_n_Amy> when Spock's Beard was there
<GHammerSteve> No, that's the one we cancelled.
<DJBarryHobbit> An eldritch wind
<DJBarryHobbit> I'm likin that line/song
<GHfan_Sam> good song :)
<GHfan_Sam> gee, where's this guy from?
<GHammerSteve> Lots of pot references here. Hope it doesn't offend.
* Sun once smoked it
<zotzz> not me, doesn't offend
Did you inhale?
<Sun> well only once
<Fred_Schendel> guys, i apologize but I must go- must

<Fred_Schendel> congrats to your son too!
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - All In Good Time - Revelation / Chronometry
<DJBarryHobbit> Thanks Fred, will be in touch
<Fred_Schendel> Steve will keep you filled in on all
the secrets- this album has many!
<Sun> take care Fred
<GHammerSteve> Yes, I'll take credit for all the good

hope to see some of you here in Sept.
<GHfan_Sam> and then i'll steal it and put it on ym
<GHammerSteve> How do you like my Hammond solo here?
<Mike_n_Amy> Bye Fred thanks for coming!
* Fred_Schendel has quit IRC (Quit: Leaving)
<GHammerSteve> Oh, he's still here!
<GHammerSteve> Fred is a true genius by the way.
* Sun knows this
<GHammerSteve> Arjen on guitar here.
<GHfan_Sam> Sam is not surprised
<Sun> all of you guys are genius....great playing and
<GHfan_Sam> no kidding!
I get much help from above.
<GHammerSteve> The songs that I wrote, that you guys
usually like the best ...
<GHammerSteve> were all prayed for.
<Mike_n_Amy> I love this part!!!!
<GHfan_Sam> me too!
<GHammerSteve> This 'tale' is mostly a true one.
<Mike_n_Amy> It weirds out Amy though..
<Sun> Music especially prog is very spiritual in nature....
<GHammerSteve> Well, it should.
<GHammerSteve> I agree Sun.
<GHfan_Sam> especially cool with headphones
<GHfan_Sam> his voice going back and forth...
<GHammerSteve> The vocals are run through a Leslie cabinet.
<Sun> I thought it might be a flanger
<Sun> shows you how what you hear is not always right
<GHfan_Sam> ha - the one time in my life i actually
know what you're talking about when it comes to equipment!
<GHammerSteve> That's probably the only song we ever
tried that on.
<Sun> very what is the word, majestic
<GHfan_Sam> that makes me think of TROGDOR
<Sun> you have captured that
<DJBarryHobbit> I love the Leslie
<GHfan_Sam> (www.homestarrunner.com thing)
<DJBarryHobbit> I have a leslie effect on me amp
<GHammerSteve> You wouldn't like it if it was stored
in your garage though!
<DJBarryHobbit> I have a Danelectro Psycho flange
<DJBarryHobbit> HOHOHO in the garage!
<Sun> how old is that pedal barry?
<GHfan_Sam> Ok, i give up
<GHammerSteve> There's no room to park the car due to
<GHfan_Sam> Never gonna understand that
<Sun> my first was a mxr flanger
<GHammerSteve> And its a two car garage.
<DJBarryHobbit> It is fairly new Sun
<GHfan_Sam> and how much of it did you have to drag
<DJBarryHobbit> Danelectro is making stuff again
<DJBarryHobbit> My GEEEEtar is a Danelectro too
<GHammerSteve> This is a true story about a guy named
Tom from long ago.
<DJBarryHobbit> With built-in FX
<GHammerSteve> Want to know the scary part?
<DJBarryHobbit> Yeah Steve?
<Sun> they make a reissue of the danelectro coral electric
sitar now too I think
<GHammerSteve> He hadn't spoken with Fred in 20 years.
<GHammerSteve> Then, on the very day our album came
<GHammerSteve> He signed our guest book.
<GHfan_Sam> woah, dude
<DJBarryHobbit> Who sings that last song...sorry if
I missed it!
<GHammerSteve> It was TOM!
<DJBarryHobbit> Great story
Now Playing: Glass Hammer - All In Good Time - Chronotheme
<GHfan_Sam> private entry?
<GHammerSteve> He did google searches on Chronometry
and found us!
<GHammerSteve> Brad sings most of it.
<GHfan_Sam> let's see, that would be april 25, 2000?
<GHammerSteve> Real entry.
<GHammerSteve> DO NOT EMAIL HIM Sam!
<GHfan_Sam> I know!.3
<GHfan_Sam> I will just read the entry
<GHammerSteve> Okay, maybe not the exact day. But close.
<GHfan_Sam> that was the day, though right?
<GHfan_Sam> o am i mixing it up with the day that it
was supposed to come out?
<GHammerSteve> He thought he could here the words "Heed
this message Tom", in a Yes album.
<GHfan_Sam> because there was that nasty two week delay
<GHammerSteve> We did put it in our album.
<GHfan_Sam> which yes album?
<GHammerSteve> Awaken on Going For The One
<Sun> must be the song awaken
<GHfan_Sam> I love that song!!!!
<Sun> jon does mutter several things
<GHfan_Sam> That's my favorite yes song because it reminds
me of Heaven
<GHfan_Sam> your song, i mean
<GHammerSteve> I do to.
That song was inspired by Calvin Miller's book - The Singer Trilogy.
<GHammerSteve> I got to meet Calvin Miller.
<GHfan_Sam> Who's he?
<GHammerSteve> Baptist writer and professor.
