My good friend Thommy Saraceno has been making music under the name Owlfood since 2003. Sometimes his wife Anna and I give a hand in whatever way we can. He’s got three releases out now—Owlfood LP (2004), Black Optics EP (2006), split cassette w/ Al Qaeda (2010)—and has a track on the Death Aesthetics comp (2009).
Percussion for the first CD was tracked at my apartment in Oak Square, 2004:
Drums on Black Optics were recorded at Blast Zone, Dudley Sq., 2005:
March 13, 2008 Owlfood performed live for the first time at the Rutherford Studios opening Rochester, NY:

Tracking for a new LP has commenced at Blast Zone.
Merry Christmas! Much has happened this year I’ve neglected to add to this page until today. First off, recording the new full-length is ongoing, though due to my eight month absence progress has been quite slow. We are looking forward to its completion early 2012.
This past August Paradigms Recordings, a small label based in the U.K.. released a CD compilation of Owlfood songs. In conjunction with the release t-shirts were produced as well. We are incredibly grateful to Paradigms and all the folks who have bought the CD.
Anna, Thommy and I played a low-key show on December 10th. It was a real pleasure to work on these songs again and it gave me an opportunity to try out some new effects concepts for the Rhodes. Good times!
