Oh man that was awesome...the album is beautiful, it was nice to hear it with all that desert scenery around. At the end one of the guys that set the thing up said "I just got a text from the band, they said they love you guys".

Yes it will my friends. I will get the edit to you asap. Still gotta make the gawdawful drive home 6 hours ... and its fucking bumper to bumper. But, if I gotta get stuck in traffic to be a part of what just happened ... yeah. Can do.

Sketchy connection out here in the desert so full report later will be edging what I shot first thing when home. Sorry again for not keeping up while live. Damn phone died.


PAUL! You came through! your'e my hero! No seriously. Will it be posted or should i give you my email?


Nah, just had the gear and decided since it was in my beautiful state, and i love the desert ... it had to be done! i also knew so many of you were here sending us all some seriously good vibes and couldn't be there for countless reasons. I was seriously planning on a live gig. Since that didn't happen I have a nice locked shot of the ... airstream the truck and speakers. Sorry guys. Guess I was too optimistic. Yes, I brought the "dead kitty" wind muffler for my ZOOM recorder. Quite nice - pretty much zeroed out any hint of wind. I will edit it when I get home but that won't be til 3a PDT. Sleep can wait. Will load it to my YouTube page (look for Turk 242). There's already my humble reatment of the cosecha transmission there but tomorrow will be today's festivities.

Ok, so enough of the dry tech talk. To asnwer your question Decorah: kennychiwa147 said it best. I am still a little in disbelief. I quickly got over the no live show thing. It was just really cool to look around and see literally every walk of life there - young and old. That's when you know it's quality music. The setting was impeccable. Surreal. I am an avid trailer camper so this set piece made me smile wide. When the music came on I was pretty much swept away. I considered taking notes but felt like a tool as i was already standing up there with the camera. my buddy kept encouraging me to enjoy the experience too (he was the one rocking the ray bans in the blue t shirt). Yes the air was thick, sweet and sticky. :)

Ok, music - I listened to RFTD for 90 minutes yesterday on loop while running in big sur. never did that with any track in my life. It did not get old. So when I heard it today I wasnt sure how i would react. gotta say i got pretty choked up. I think it was everything - setting, with fellow BOCers, the sky - and the transition was wicked. The opening bits were really a blur. I was shaking and trying not to fuck up the recording. I do remember the fanfare and thought that was really nice. As for the rest, well you'll just have to wait I guess. I will say this - game changer. BEST. ALBUM. EVER.

Yeah, that's right ...

I just got home from the listening party in Newberry Springs and I am damn glad that I took the leap of faith and headed out there. Being in such an intimate, exclusive location with fellow BOC fans and being some of the first non-journalist/insiders in the world to hear TH in it's entirety was an experience I will always cherish and remember.
Big ups to Josh with Warp Record with whom I had a nice enlightening chat.
It was also great to meet Tonx and you all owe him a cold one for the live U-streams that he did.
I took a ton of high res photos and HD video although I will not be posting any of the music that has not been officially released out of respect to the artists and label. I am sure there are plenty of others who have or will be doing so in the coming hours. I will post photos on my website soon, but first I need to hit the shower and wash off the desert grit and grime.
BEST MEMORIAL DAY EVER!

Just getting home; traffic back to LA was surprisingly mellow.

What a great experience, I feel really lucky I was able to make it. Such a surreal backdrop for an equally surreal album. Certainly boards music, but definitely a different path then what they've released before. Great to hear what sounded like a snippet of that melody that went along with the number clues show up at the end of one track, and surprised to find the cosecha transmission tune end the album, but an appropriate finale to an amazing afternoon. Many thanks to BOC and Warp for putting this together, and for the take home goodies at the end. Culminated with an amazing sunset over the desert as well; really amazing event.

Sad to have missed this. Thanks for your descriptive post. I plan to listen to this in an arid environment and hopefully partially recreate this experience.

Or the band Goblin who did music for some of Dario Argento's films.
There were plenty of familiar BOC flavors, but also some very new sounds that you would not expect from them. Some serious bone-rattling bass in a couple songs.

Just woke up to this! Wow. I wonder if this was only planned when Warp/BoC realised some fans would be nuts enough to head out there after a few guys went out to Yermo when it was identified in the teaser video. Either way, an awesome gesture by the band to the fans. Gutted it wasn't this side of the pond but really happy for the guys who made it. Roll on June 10th!

posters 2 sizes, stickers. warp guy gave me loads to hand out, some people were just standing around and didn't seem bothered about the promo items but took the stickers when i offered them anyways.
the album is very good. really lovely ambient piece 3 or 4 tracks from the end, people who like that side of them will love it. the whole album sounds dense and chock full of trippy sounds, will need a lot of listens to get the whole story. a more than fitting addition to their discography.

please dont bullshit about the band saying they loved us..please?

thats just incredible if its true. man, what i wouldnt give to see them live. i really want to thank the boys for all this.

a couple of people who know of BoC but not enough to care couldnt understand why i was so psyched about today. i tried to explain that imagine your favorite band who you thought was never going to release a new album and after 7 years of radio silence have come out with this incredible ARG that ignited the fan base and has helped reveal the new record.

they still didnt get it. but i know you guys do.
