Im so glad that this song has been recorded, its been a favourite of mine since we first began playing it in February when the kitchen consisted of only Myself, Frieder Guy and Jo Little. I think we''ve come along way since our earliest performances (cellphone footage is a testament to this) It's been a wonderful journey and along the way we've managed to pick up more fabulous members Glen Kellet And Teresa Monteath, whos creative individualism has seen our material blossum and become the way we had always heard it inside our heads when ever we got together to play. I must extend a special thanks to Susan whos last name i do not know yet (sorry) for playing cello with only a few hours notice, practice and even knowledge of the song. Im sure i speak for the rest of the group when i say the song wouldn't be complete without your input and consider it to be your inaugiration to the kitchen.
Jo, Glen, Frieder and Teresa; I have thoroughly enjoyed my time making music with each and all of you, it's been an adventure and I find it sad that soon it will end. However there is still time before we go our seperate ways at the end of the year, and within that time to play, record and enjoy do what we all love to do.
Thank you all so much

Fans of Trashouts the wait is over. Almost a year ago to the day i began working with the Quartet to release some of there garbage infused songs
Jared approached me prior to his departure to Byron bay asking if i'd be interested in his absence recording the band perform a set together at the SIT studios and sending the sessions over the ditch so he could complete the vocals and mix the tracks on the beautiful equipment here at SAE.
After his departure i began talking to the band and we all felt it would be more beneficial to document the bands talents by work solely on one song, recording each instrument opting for 'perfect' takes as apposed to settling for a live feel where the band have allot of pressure to complete near perfect takes in a very limited time.
It took about 4-5 weeks to prepare and record the Drums bass and guitar layers, taking time between to work with the band members making sure that any edits that had been made were true to their vision of the track.
The session was delivered as promised to Jared sadly too late so vocals were then recorded also at SIT in the final week of tech meaning no time could be spent on the mix down.
Over summer i made several attempts using The DigiRack plugins (Boo) ProTools LE offers but all of the resulting mixes were sub par and the project was once again shelved.
One week ago while attending a mix tutorial in the TLA Valve studio at Byron's SAE, The track was pulled up and used as en example of mixing, so together with the tutor and the classmates of my practical group we methodically processed tracks as you would any other studio, The valves in the desk were looming on death and a week away from replacement allowed us the very exciting and rare opportunity to push them as far as we could before inducing any unwanted distortion. This gave the song a huge lift in warmth and Outboard vavle compressors and other exciting toys meant the song stepped away from the normally digitally sounding Invercargill recordings. I hope to take a second crack at the mix as there several aspects i believe could be improved, but in the mean time this version is at the level i have been hoping to achieve since the beginning of the project.
I'd like to Thank the Trashouts, Jared, Glen, Jen and Molder for giving me this opportunity, but more importantly for putting in the extra effort to make what i think is a fair representation of how we will remember Trashout Fridays (if you even remembered the night before) Also thanks for not pushing me to release it, hopefully its worth the wait.
