So for several weeks the members of Bone Appetit made the 20 minute drive west from Duluth to Pike Lake to record. The space was a ugly little office, clearly built in the late 70's, with four small rooms. The band kept the computer, mixer, and other recording gear in one room while the actual performances took place in the adjacent room.
Here is a clip of Double Barrel doing a quick mic check before recording.
Due to equipment constraints, the band was forced to records each instrument one at a time. This made for lengthy sessions, and the members not participating on a given night turned to liquor and shenanigans for entertainment. Hot Rod in particular would often find himself devoid of responsibilities, so he mainly sat around cracking jokes and drinking straight Gin with a splash of water from the bathroom sink.
Late one evening, Hot Rod came up with the idea to have a video shot of him in a hot tub with a glass of gin claiming that “the best part about drinking Gin ... is that you never run out of mix,” whereby he would scoop his glass into the bubbling water and toast the camera. This is perhaps the greatest Bone Appetit moment to never actually happen, therefore the following is necessary:
The Domino's sessions were obviously plagued with technical and inspirational problems and so only two songs actually came out of the them; "Rev My Engine Up" and "Fight to Kill." You can listen to both of those recordings here:
