As always, the crew, sweating for your sins… even the big ones. New tunes! No, not the ones for the record we just recorded… NEWER THAN THAT! Come down. Two potato minimum. Also, celebrate April 30th!
Come down and hear the new stuff at our home away from home. Bring someone that doesn’t Know… but ought to!
PS: Heads up! Just got a message from CP: Nik Turner (of Hawkwind fame) will be playing sax the entire second set of the Ohm gig on Tuesday. Our friend Donny Sarian will also be video taping/recording the event, so lots of fun things will be happening. Come down and dig it.
First, thanks to our friends at Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles for the mentions…
Ohm with Hawkwind disc recorded, and short interview with CP!
Guess the word is out then. We recorded this a couple of weeks ago. Rumored that not only will Nik Turner be on the disc (Hawkwind), but heard Ray Manzarek, maybe someone from Roxy Music, and others will be on it as well. Sessions went off great, 3 days of recording. The crew played their asses off of course. Looking forward to what Nick and the rest lay down on top of it… thanks to Metal Tim Henderson for the post.
Lots of stuff has been happening. Gigs. Recording. Songwriting. Interviews. Come down and see how the live shows are happening at our home away from home. This coming Tuesday, February 19th. Info here.
Ohm will be playing at the Baked Potato on Tuesday, January 22nd. Also, the crew will be playing NAMM for Schecter Guitars at the Grove of Anaheim with Exodus, Jeff Loomis, and Prong on Saturday, January 26th at 8PM! Come get a copy of Tsunami Jams, hear the tunes for the upcoming studio record out soon…
PS: Ohm will also be performing at the Eminence booth at NAMM. 2PM on the 26th. See you there!
PPS: NAMM update: Chris is doing a signing at the Schecter booth on Friday, 1/25 @ 1 pm. Doug Pinnick (King’s X), Gary Holt (Exodus, Slayer), Jeff Loomis, and JD DeServio (Black Label Society, Vinnie Moore Band) will also be present. Jeff Loomis is also doing a clinic after the signing.

Also on CD Baby:
Well… think we’ve got the recording of 11 songs done. We might do a 12th tune, and there was another written in the process, that we may still record. Soon as we OK all the versions, we can start mixing and mastering (probably after the holidays). Here’s a (tentative) track list (not in order):
Sisters of the Agiel
Father of Invention
Up From the Ashes
