For those of you not hip to the LITA bandwagon, Bob has been blogging periodically on their site about his various tour shenanigans with The Blakes. He took a bit of a hiatus, but now is back! Click here for the full post, but here’s a teaser:
Our first order of business for the tour was to record a session for iTunes at Different Fur studios in San Francisco on Thursday. Amazingly, we’d never been to San Fran before and we were very taken by the city. It’s a beautiful, unique place. ITunes head Bruno met us at the studio and gave us all brand new iPod Nanos, which I thought was a nice gesture. Matt Sullivan and Lars both flew down and met us there as well. Anyway, Different Fur has excellent facilities and a fine staff and we had a very productive session, recording eight tracks for iTunes to use exclusively. We’ll be working with house engineer Patrick to get final mixes in the coming week or so and we’re optimistic about the end results. In celebration, we got drunk at an Irish bar around the corner with Lars and Matt. We later launched into a spirited discussion over dinner at a neighboring Thai restaurant about how to ask fans to request our songs on the radio without coming across as douches. It made little sense.
