Fishhead - Live Above a Fish Store slated

Fishhead - Live Above a Fish Store slated

Groove Spacing signed Fishhead unheard.

One of their members thrust a brown paper bag towards us. We opened it hungrily, hoping for sandwiches, and saw instead two cassette tapes. We said nothing, just glanced at him, our question obvious in our raised eyebrows. He nodded. We shook hands then. We had a deal.

Those two cassettes, dearly purchased, might have turned out to be inaudible or worse. We resurrected a Yamaha 4-track deck from the bottom of the mic closet in Groove Spacing studios and wired it into the rig, expecting the worse. But from the first crack of drummer Ken Hurlbut's snare we knew we'd struck, if not gold, then decently recyclable aluminum.

We're cleaning up the tracks, scraping away hiss and filing off the burrs. "Live Above a Fish Store" will be released in sometime in 2015, 30 years late but timely as ever.
