“04.03.05 watching motocross [chinaski]
Hi all, we finally managed to arrive in LA on the late afternoon of Sunday. We met Dave Dominguez and Ian and started the production of the album on Monday 28th at Ameraycan Studios. While there Tokio recorded all the drum parts in three days and today we all moved to Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Dade started the bass lines and as for now everything's amazing, the material recorded is very good and the vibe is totally up, we're all very glad to have the chance to make the album like this, it's something we always aimed for and now it’s a reality. We'll hopefully meet you at one of European shows that we're currently planning for the future.
All for now, it has been an exhausting day and we're going to pass out on the sofas watching motocross... c-u soon.”
