"Pecatonica Mud", the title of the new Midwesterners CD that's in the works right now. We hope to be dropping songs soon, including the title song "Pecatonica Mud", and we'll eventually release a full album. It's been a long strange trip with this CD, as it has been with all of them. Writing the songs, recording them, doing all the related promo and website work, not to mention coming up with the money for all of it. The three original Midwesterner CDs each came in at around $15,000.00. The drum tracks for this CD were laid down a year and a half ago at our drummer Mark Haines' studio Williamson Magnetic. That was an all analog studio and soon after that he had to close it. With closing a business, family responsibilities and covid, we couldn't get back to work on it until fall 2020. And now it's not safe to get everyone together in a studio so we're attempting home recording. Mark is an analog expert but is tackling digital recording for the first time. I've had a Protools set up at home for some time, but I don't have the ears or computer power to mix a project this size. Tom and Ernie are recording at home for the first time with varying degrees of success. Covid is still out there and I don't feel like waiting to see what happens in the future, I think we need to put this out now or very soon.
We'll keep you updated on our progress and if you'd like to help with this or other projects, you can contribute here. A payment of $17 will get you the full "Pecatonica Mud" CD delivered to you. thank you. Richard Wiegel 518 W. Lakeside St. #2, Madison, WI 53715
