People will be surprised by the new Plastic Beef CD (whenever it comes out). Right now it's a work in progress, and Ian & I added backing harmony vocal tracks on two songs last night. It was my first involvement with the project. I believe Ian's recorded rhythm guitar tracks at some point along the way. It's a real assemblage with a depth of material collected from the past several years. The process is part of the art as constructions are recorded that have never, will never be replicated live.
