The Recording Studio...fire up the gravy....






In a couple hours I'll jump on the train and go back to the studio
we've been working at for the last couple weeks. It's been an
experience thus far, and we're all really excited about how everything
is shaping up. Take by take I'm hearing a more completed version and
getting happier with the result.

The
mood is good, and to boot, somebody there makes coffee all the time.
There is literally a fresh pot every time I want a cup, that shit is
serious.

If I keep writing, I'll divulge secrets I don't want
to. Because I talk too much. But take it from me, if you haven't seen
Ted Hutt dancing like an early 80's British ska kid while Alex R.
lights incense and harnesses his guitar power animal. Well, then you
just haven't seen everything. Even if you thought you did.

Oh, and Brian is adding teeth, and I'm sadly subtracting.

Cheers!
Benny

from Paste magazine (for the full article/interview, see the thread at http://thegaslightanthem.bigforumpro.com/interviews-f14/new-article-interview-in-paste-magazine-new-album-etc-t1646.htm#21469 )


[CAUTION: The Gaslight Anthem posted the following tweet on 20 Feb. regarding this article: "We're still looking for the song about a doctor or a baseball player... hmm, must be on a different band's record." So please read with caution.]


The band’s forthcoming third studio album, American Slang (out June 15 on SideOneDummy), includes songs about someone who is not “the greatest baseball player in the world” and “a doctor that cured cancer.”

American Slang is just what we do. That’s who we are,” Fallon says. “You’re presented with this American Dream and all these American possibilities—and then there’s the reality of what actually happens with your life.”

American Slang speaks to what Fallon calls “surviving within your circumstances,” a lesson that the album takes to heart. Now two weeks into recording, The Gaslight Anthem has been experimenting gleefully on a collection of old amps to see which childhood favorites they can emulate. “It’s really exciting, because you’re finding out the little secrets of the records you loved growing up,” Fallon says.

The end result takes cues from Tom Waits, The Clash and The Supremes, and most of all from earlier Clapton and Rolling Stones output—British blues and rock records inspired by American ones. “It’s almost like we’re bouncing it back this time,” Fallon says. “This [record] is really the one where we said, ‘All right, well, we’ve got our influences. They’ll speak naturally, but what do we have to say on our own? What does it feel like to put on our own shoes and clothes? What do we sound like, and what’s our story?’”

I am really really interested in the whole "not the best baseball player in the world" and "doctor that cured cancer" concept. Can't wait!

Interesting. I wonder if whoever is updating the gaslight twitter feed is just messing with us, or if Paste for some reason misquoted Brian.

Well, I knew the NYT article was a fake. It didn't offer any real information, just stuff about his solo myspace and then making garbage up about those were for a solo record. We knew they weren't, so it was easy to see through that. Making up quotes is a different matter entirely.

P.S. The doctor that cured cancer wasn't that great a concept anyway. Maybe I would have been proved wrong, but it sounds hokey.

This is very troubling indeed. After all, SideOneDummy themselves link to the article from their Gaslight Anthem page [ http://sideonedummy.com/bands/the-gaslight-anthem ], so it's not as if it had come from some spoof website. I certainly posted it on here in good faith.

That said, the two song topics did strike me as odd at the time, as Brian had previously indicated that the record would be more personal.

It's probably a misquote or something pulled out of context.
Brian probably said that he isn't a doctor or a famous baseball player, just a regular American citizen without having it too good or having it too bad. He said things like that in past interviews. Kinda stroks with this quote from the paste interview.

"“American Slang is just what we do. That’s who we are,” Fallon
says. “You’re presented with this American Dream and all these American
possibilities—and then there’s the reality of what actually happens
with your life.”

Thinking back on it, it did seem weird to me that the article went straight from saying the album was about toiling "everymen" to talking about baseball players and doctors. Oh well.

Does anyone know if this is referencing a specific band? As of now I cant think of anything, but that doesnt mean much.
