sleep is nice but..

saturday morning, the day after the bears last show I drove home 5 hours in time to make a surprise birthday party for Mark Volman (from Flo and Eddie and Zappa fame.) sunday I went to work with saul zonana who is mixing side four with me (and house-hunting in the nashville area.) we worked on the first 7 mixes of the live power trio. I'm a little dumbfounded (or maybe just a little dumb.) I had no idea what to expect. there is only one word I can say...


  1. I trust that's a good "oh...my...God".

  2. Hi Adrian!
    Welcome back....we missed you, and our daily dose of elephantblog! This blogspot has quickly become an institution for us fans of all things Belewbeloid.... But as they say, we can't miss you if you don't go away!

    I'm overjoyed to hear that you have begun mixing Side 4....edging ever closer to the day when we ALL will be able to emerse ourselves sonically in the unbridled energy and mastery of your 'power' trio LIVE! I for one cannot wait to get my hands on that hot puppy.

    OMG is right....you three ARE that good!

    You, Mr. Belew, are certainly NOT a 'little dumb', just incredibly modest, for one so incredibly talented - IMHO, a trait that makes you even more special!


  3. Uh, "oh...my...God" is three words, Adrian.

    Unless we're doing some sort of kooky counting.

    (Sigh, ok. I might as well get this over with. Come to Providence, RI. Please? Pretty please? I can show you a place that'll make a mean vegan burrito)

  4. I agree with noise machine, please come to Providence. Or at least the Hartford, CT area. I'd love to try a 'Mean Vegan Burrito' though I am partial to meat. Meat meat meat (I guess my little Jack Russel Terrier has an influence on me).
