Hey Wordsies -
First and foremost, THANK YOU for all the kind words on “Held Up High”! All of you who have watched the video have made it the most-watched on our YouTube channel. You guys rule!
Secondly, just wanted to let you know that we’re putting the finishing touches on our next original track, which we now hope to have online in early June. We’ll let you know once we’ve nailed down a specific date. In the meantime, here’s a teaser of the artwork:
Spring it ‘tis upon us! Hope you’re all happy and well.
Just arrived! A whole lotta goodness in the 20 tracks on this CD!!
Our new lyric video for “Held Up High”, which went live this afternoon!
A new lyric vid is in the works for our recording of “Held Up High” from the new RECORDS tribute CD. We hope to have it on our YouTube page sometime next week!
My old friend Yamaha DX100, which I plugged in yesterday for the first time in15 years. This is the synth (along with Matt’s Roland) that was used on the first three WORDS albums, and very sparingly on our 4th (on which we used it just for sound effects). I bought this particular keyboard back in 1986 because its smaller keys were perfect for my skinny lady fingers.
Heck yeah Mike Nesmith! Jeff & Kim at their first Nez solo concert. 4.5.2013.
