Last Friday 12/1 Bacon Fat kicked off the new year in style with a hot & steamy show at the Rock Classic Bar in Brussels. Most of the show was filmed and you can view the recordings right here. Also check out the review of the live show (in Dutch) on the Rootsville Blues, Jazz and Roots site!
So no gigs at all in December? What the hell have we been up to then?!
Well, we just took a little break from the road to make some demo recordings of our brand new tunes. So far most drums, bass and guitars have been recorded. Up next is creating a basic mix and lay down the vocals.
Recording is fun, but also a little bit boring, especially for those not playing. Check out some video footage of our recording sessions below, including a nice time-lapse video of the second bass recording session. Neelzz was of course smart enough to put a different audio track on top of the video to obfuscate the endless messing up of his own bass lines!
Drum recording session 8/12 (utter concentration)
Guitar recording session 14/12 (notice the ‘fuck’ at the end of the video!)
Bass recording session 19/12 (video edited by Neelzz)
Bacon Fat is featured with a full interview in this month’s issue of the UK-based Rock&Metal magazine Fireworks.
