It has taken us 4 years, and we still aren't done. Back in the summer of 2001, the ARGUS boys started recording what was scheduled to be the most influential album of the 21st century. After those initial records, a couple of other attempts were taken to finish the album. Greg's bass line adds, Erich's guitar and banjo adds. So on the 27th, vocals were added to 5 of the 9 tracks.
So yeah, it took way too long to get that done. Hopefully it will be completed this summer sometime. I feel like we've moved past some of these songs, but they are still ARGUS standards.
Doing the minimal recording really made me miss playing. I suppose I always hope there will be time for ARGUS, even if it is just me and Erich performing once in awhile. That is certainly hard to do considering we are all spread out over the southeast.
But ARGUS is more than the music. I love the music, but it is more about my connection with some of my best friends. Erich, Greg and Brian, which is how it all started, are three of my oldest and dearest friends. They've been there for very important times in my life, and I am very thankful for that. I don't talk with them nearly enough, but it is nice to know I can pick up the phone, call them and we are back to our old ways. They are great men, and I'm lucky to have them as friends.
We now return you to your regular scheduled Lowe Down
