After interviewing the band in January and seeing their performances in Dallas and in Austin at SXSW, I stayed in touch. As they entered Denton on this past Friday (after a day of uncertainty caused by van problems), we were discussing a follow-up interview and also a possible song request for that night's concert at Hailey's. I had suggested "Union City Blue" since it's one of my favorite songs off Eat to the Beat. It was a song Ramesh was familiar with but not possible for the entire band.
We met up at the show, talked and he realized the song I was thinking wasn't the same song he was. The song he was thinking was "Shalya" -- another amazing track from Eat to the Beat. We went to my car and listened to the song a few times through. Ramesh went looking for an acoustic guitar. I returned into the venue. Within minutes, he said he had found one. I said "where were you thinking we'd record?", and he replied "there's probably enough room in your car." I had no complaints and we went to the quietest place to record -- 95 Corolla Studios as it will forever be called.
This is the output.
