well you all know that im currently in the process of recording our first album, but in addition to all that we are gonna start makin many more videos for your enjoyment, and also as a measure to get yall to know us better. also maybe ill have a little interview with the one and only Louis Svitek(our producer) of MindFunk and Ministry fame, and his thoughts on the band and the album, and maybe some stories of life on the road. i really wanna take a moment and thank all those who remain patient as all hell for our album. you continue to show support show after show. you will soon have your album so obama got his dream huh. im sooo dam excited for the US but i must stay realistic. the prez will only have a certain amount of power its up to us to speak up to our local legislature and demand what we want and need. i do realize that senior obama will make this country feel proud of itself again, and i mean the general mainstream population not the middle state mccain peeps who always think the us is amazing. but we need to love this country again. and return to making it amazing to live in.
kinda went off subject but meh. see ya soon with more good stuff.
Well today is kinda of gloomy, ive been going trhough some personal rocky roads, and they aint been tasting of chocolate. but lets keep our eyes on the prize here, tonight i along with Jesse must record some scratch vocals. Now its all good but its been a while since ive been in the studio singin... AWKWARD! lol plus everyone is sick and im like fighting to the death with my partner vitamin c against errbodies nasty. ill give it my best tonight, and then tomorrow Drums. also im kinda sleepy i didnt get to bed till 3 am due to an old friends MOUTH lol. but its ok i enjoy the chat. now im off to drink tea.
I got to sit down with my very good friend Vinny Malave of The Barcait Couture. We talked about music life and some future plans. Enjoy !
AG: Hi Vinny, its been a while. VM: Whats up Adrien? long timeee AG:so most people know you from The Barcait Couture, so tell me hows the band been doing? VM We've been doing great man. No complaints. We're heading to Phoenix AZ to record our debut album called "His Story of Lies". How about you? I heard Stoop has a new bassist? AG: Yeah! you got to keep playing no matter with who you know, well you must know i heard your drummer has recently left TBC VM: yeah there was a lot of craziness with that but all in all, things happened for the best and I can honestly say it was the best move we've made so far. So is there a Stoop album coming soon? AG: yes actually we are in the studio as we speak. we dont have a name for the album yet but it should be a whole new sound. so let me ask you aboout this Album title His Story Of Lies. Is that title tied to politics or simply a man who lies VM a man who lies. I've always been a fan of storytelling and just creativeness. So I took fantasy concepts like horror/death/hearbreak all that and combined it wit experiences and events in my life. People who have backstabbed and all that. Just lettin it all out and puttin it in music form. VM:So most of the new stuff you've guys been writing, what have the songs been about? AG: thats awesome! well Stoop has two main songwriters Jesse Villalobos and I, but my songs at least in this album have been tied heavily to one person in particular. they are most about self doubt but in a way that wants to change it. VM: thats awesome. I'm a fan of you guys and I def consider you guys close like familia. What some people don't know is that I actually used to be in Stoop. I guess thats one of the reasons its exciting playing shows with you guys bc thats the moment where i can share the stage wit u and eagle bear again haha AG: its been a while since we picked up a guitar in the same room. but it all worked out for the best TEAR TEAR AG: so i got another question AG: is there any spots in your mind screaming TOUR for TBC? VM: can i swear? Absofuckenlutely. AG: ha VM:We're hoping on touring this summer. Thats why we're spending early 09 recording and getting more merch. We're trying to get everything ready for tour in the summer. Theres no point in touring if you don't have anything to represent you. AG: very true, and since gas is no longer public enemy no.1, you need to sell merch for MUNCHIES inventory huh. any ideas as to where you might tour VM: We're thinking of hitting places like Indiana, Ohio, St Louis, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and the rest we haven't figured out yet. How about Stoop? Are you guys planning on any tour soon? AG: were thinking of stickin to the midwest for now, Stoop The Small Taters Tour AG: well as itf true for all things in life let me just ask the closing five questions... you can ask me five of your own too sir VM: alright sounds good AG: 1 Whats the first song on the album gonna be called VM: its an Interlude but the first song on the album is going to be called "I'll Sleep When You're Dead.." AG: 2 What do you think about dunkin donuts thinkin fatass america actually runs? VM: I think America runs but only to Dunkin Donuts or Mcdonalds. AG: Final question , if you had one thing youd want god to forgive you for what would it be VM: hmm. Well honestly, I live with no regrets, I believe everything happens for a reason. But if there was one thing I would want to be forgiven for, id want him to forgive me for all the cursing and horrible jokes I make in the future on stage. haha
VM: well for my 1st Q, What bands have influenced this upcoming album? what bands have you guys been listening to the most AG: yeah , i think this album on my side of the writing is mostly due to built to spill and coheed and cambria. although the songs sound nothin like those two bands the lyrical styles and meanings of the songs they portrayed, made me wanna write like that VM: thats awesome, I'm looking forward to that. 2 more Q. TBC/Stoop tour? and last Q..Did u know theres a total tool on youtube that plays songs named Adrian Aguilar. Hes taking ur spotlight. AG:lol as for question number two the tbc stoop midwest tour would be nice,we are llooking for a band who is as dedicated! as for question three, the name is Adrien Grape sir. thank you WISCONSIN!!! VM: haha Well thanks for the interview and if you guys are really down to setup a tour, We'd Love to. Honestly. Id rather go on the road with another band, especially when theyre friends. and wed both give 2 great sounds to the crowd. AG: man nice talking see ya around soon AG: say hi to the ma for me VM: you do the same! have fun at the studio take care bro
nor will i till the Stoop album is done! im not alone in this endeavor, im joined by my brother luis (who will probably shave soon) and Bela. Jesse, our guitarist, grows to little hair so hes out by default lol. we finally start drums this friday and saturday. wish us luck. hey maybe itll grow to the floor. i can only dream...
So ive been buying alot lately, hey we all must do our part in this hideous economy. well i must admit i didnt buy for the sake of ol' Johnny Greenback, but for the regular working man, cus thats who i am and thats who i care about(tommy boy) lol. i bought this nifty desk!!! it supports everything that used to be on the floor lol.
The trip wasnt that bad at all actually... perfect roads and perfect sunrise and sunset. see i get to see both cus i left the office at precisely 3 am and got back home at 8 pm. jealous... i bet . It seems the only bad thing that happened night was RACISM!!! thats right i saw it happen ...TO ME!!! its one of those things you think you only read about in books lol. so heres how it went down. im on my ride home from michigan when the "hunger of ages" hits me, so i exit on the next available food stop. ahh popeyes(gary, indiana) now i ive heard of this area in bad terms but i was sooooo hungry. i walked inside and i stood inline. it was finally my turn to order "finally...CHICKEN!!!" only i never got to order. The cashier ignored me for 20 mins. now thats a long time to wait for an order, so i took the hint, after a few mean glances she threw my way i walked away to good ol subway. i took from this experience that we are measured by our color and this will only restrict us if we let the evils of POPEYES take over. Subway all the way.
