I know it seems like this project has been hibernating all summer, but I actually was fairly busy. Earlier in the summer I recorded and mixed an EP for Atlanta noisenik Rajio called Cast Your Pure Eyes. It ended up coming out on my boutique label Tiny Kraken, in association with Songs About Wizards.

As for strictly Warning Lights activity... I ended up recording an entire album of sythesizer/droney stuff on my parents' computer and it crashed. I'm working on getting a copy of it back. Some of it I would really like to appear on the full length I want to release in the fall.

After putting out Different Geographies this spring, I really wasn't sure where all I could go with this project, but I've had so many ideas this summer I'm going to keep recording. Different Geographies was just a bear of a project, and so I suppose I needed a little time to catch my breath. Anyone considering recording a coherent double CDr collection of ambient traveling music should consider the difficulty of having it fit together. I am working on another all drone CDr ep that is called First Element for now.

Anyhow, I'm at work on the music that will comprise of what will hopefully turn out to be the first Warning Light CD or LP, we'll see.

I love guitars. I have three of them, a Hagstrom, a Harmony and an Epiphone I've been using alot lately. Even though this project is rather avantgarde, I like alot of music

Some of my favorite guitar albums:

- CAN "Tago Mago". It's a great album in general, but listen to those guitars... Every track has great, intricate guitar work.
- Public Image Ltd. "Metal Box". Keith Levene might be one of the most underrated guitar players ever, he manages to keep the sounds fresh over the course of a long album. There have been alot of imitators since then, but no one seems to be in the same league as Keith.
- Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band "Safe as Milk". Damn, bluesy-rockin-noodly guitar that's heavy on the treble mostly but still manages to utilize some really tasteful fuzz.
- Television "Marquee Moon". This one's obvious too, but it's hard not to listen to that title song and enjoy one of the best guitar players of the punk era.
- Spacemen 3 "The Perfect Prescription" There's alot of great guitar on this album, but that "lead" on "Call the Doctor" is a great sublime example of guitar.
- Black Sabbath "Black Sabbath Vol4" Really, any of their first five albums could be on here, this is just the one I've liked so much the past couple of years.
- Jesus and Mary Chain "Psychocandy" They did the whole fuzzy thing so well, it's a wonder to think so many have tried to do it since...
- Landing "Oceanless" Possibly the album that has the most to do with this project, the endless guitar sound of this band is something I've listened to countless times.

We played a really fun show in Asheville NC last Friday that finally featured new member C Daresta on bass. It was a little more raucous that other Warning Light shows have been, but that's a-ok.

Even though "Different Geographies" has just come out on Sleepaway Recordings, we will be working on our first full band record in the near future.

The Bridge Tape

I've been working on an mini album called The Bridge Tape under the bandname Hospital Whites. I think this is going to be a name I use for a while to put out noisy, dubby, quasi industrial type stuff for a while, mostly on tape.

Hopefully, if I get my act together, The Bridge Tape will be ready in the next few weeks.
