SP-404 recordings.

Hey guys,
My newly reunited three-piece band Paper Saw played a show in Hamilton at the Sky Dragon last week. I brought my sampler and attempted to record us, but it was a fail. Thankfully, I was able to record the two other acts we played with; Lakeriser and Chris Yang. Both are super talented, and while these recordings don't really do them any justice, I hope you enjoy them nonetheless. I also don't know the song titles so they're just listed numerically. Sorry.
The third set is a recording of Little Silver Tabby (Cedalou Torma) playing at our friends Mike and Terra's apartment-waming-party a couple weeks ago.
Enjoy, friends.

Lakeriser - May 22nd, 2009 at The Sky Dragon

Chris Yang - May 22nd, 2009 at The Sky Dragon

Little Silver Tabby - May 9th, 2009 at Mike and Terra's Housewarming Party

I feel as though

I'm always sick and writing about it here.
My new mixer came in the mail today, at 8 15 AM to be exact.
I don't think the UPS guy was expecting my freshly woken self. I had great difficulty signing the stupid fucking electronic device to claim the package, and I went to bed with wet hair so it looked like there was a dead animal on top of my head. A hearty laugh was had in private several hours later.
To CELEBRATE, I threw this together, nothing special but fun was hadhadhahdhahdalol. Enjoy.

Two things.

It's 4 fucking AM again and I thought I would celebrate my insomnia by posting fun things. Fun things are great.

Paper Saw live at The Smiling Buddha Pt. 1 from Warren Hildebrand on Vimeo.

Here's the first of a few videos of my old band Paper Saw (Ceda Torma on the drums, Mike Travis bass, Danny Mendez guitar+vocals, meh on da geetah 'n' quiet singing) playing one of our last shows in Toronto w/. Danny was so kind as to return the old DVDs our show and allow me to spend two full days ripping, converting, compressing and uploading them. My favourite part is at 5:33. There are like four more, too. I was really drunk. You can tell. miss u psaw :'(

Photo taken by my infant self circa 1994 on my old street in Markham, Ontario. Mix is a bit longer than the past few, clocking in at 1:04:59, and is overall pretty melancholy, but it's still nice. Back to sampling cassettes while amplifier tubes are blown. :'(
