THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NO. 8

JUNE 11, 2021

A few personal notes…

– Today is Bobby’s eldest son’s 13th birthday. Aaron now enters his teenage years! (World, beware…)

– On Wednesday, Andy’s youngest daughter, Chantelle, was married to Michael Ribisi. (Andy says, “I could have sworn we just took her home from the hospital.”) Mike and Chantelle have known each other since they were teens. They were made for each other.

The Hatchets!

Okay, okay… the album covers of the first two ELM TREASON albums (“Days of Reaction” and “Acoustic Treason“)  have hatchets on them. What gives?? Why??

—> ALL IS EXPLAINED HERE <—

Your Input: What do you think?

So, here’s the deal….

We have decided that the live performances we recorded at the end of March will be made in an album as well as a video. The material is being mixed now.

We have 16 songs.

Now, we’re not famous or established enough to just presume that we can put out a double album and people will buy it. (nor are we that arrogant).

But we are really proud of what we did and would love to put it out in some way. 

We may be able to fit the complete set on a single CD, but on vinyl, it will DEFINITELY need to be a double album package. 

Maybe we should put create a “standard length” album based on the “best” performances and then use the complete set for the video version?

What do you think? What would be most enticing to you?

No arrogance here as far as I’m concerned… Just really good material… As for me I’m quite keen to hear that stuff live, I think live material has a kind of spontaneity that would probably be fiddled with in a studio… Looking forward to your videos…I always enjoy those immensely…Rock on guys!

Bobby

Live performances do have a kind of spontaneity; that’s a great point- and you can’t leave spontaneity up to chance. 🙂 We’ve gotta get it out there. I enjoy videos myself. Thanks for the input, Llonel!

Kris

I would say just put it on one cd if u can. I like the idea of vinyl but the more songs the better in my opinion.

Bobby

The more songs the better….who can argue with that? Thank you for the suggestion Kris.

Paul F. ILLIG

I love the videos and the opportunity to watch you play your instruments with skill and grace. Well, I’m impressed. I enjoyed the “Just like Rock and Roll” video you shared, I even caught a glimpse of a cat sneaking out (bad Kitty!) Anyways, Thanks for the great stuff. Groovy Noodles is packed with all sorts of fun tidbits. By the way, the video promoting “acoustic sedition” was on a tv set I swear we had when I was a kid. Keep up the great work!

Simply one of our favorite pictures. A friendship for the ages…. Groucho Marx and Alice Cooper. 

VIDEO CORNER

Bom Bom Boom

We found a rehearsal on a thumbnail drive (of all places) of us running through the song “JUST LIKE ROCK AND ROLL” (from our album “Acoustic Treason” ) when it was brand new.

Haven’t seen THIS is nearly forever.

We thought it was lost. 

Sharing it NOW!! Enjoy.
