This video a celebration of the early days of THE BLACK PENGUINS and SUPER. This entire project was possible because of SUPER. This was not planned out months in advance it just kinda happened. I found the untitled song and a post here and post there and HEY I think I got something. The goal was to just put it out there. Keep things raw. GET IT DONE. So hope you enjoy.

I highly recommend watching this video by James Victore about “Feck Perfuction”. Inspiration for us all: https://youtu.be/SVw5e6EYFUg

Recorded on 11-11-2010 HEY (original file name SR052-untitled-dec-11) is the 3 time we all three met together to jam. This song never made our debut album “Mark it Zero”. No edits except the intro & outro nonsense (tails out). Also TIP – we recorded our practices using Front & Back stereo pairs mics then summed down. Try headphones for that in the room vibe; as well as blasting it on some speakers with low end.

VIDEO of “The Shack”. The room were the magic happened:

Frames by The Black Penguins

Frames all started out as a jam and then in a few hours turned into a song with lyrics. Totally off the cuff lyrics. One of those golden moments of inspiration. Back in 2011 one day I sat down to just record myself jamming with no preconceived ideas. Then this riff began to brew. Frames (demo) is the first or second stereo recording on my Zoom H2 of guitar and vocals. Then I later put it into Ableton Live and added some parts but kept the original recording intact no overdubs.

Then it just sat on my computer until about 2013 when I made the “final version” of Frames. But let it sit on the shelf again. Finally in 2015 I decided to spend some time with this song and put together this single with four versions total. This is the first Black Penguins song with vocals.
