We're considering recording again. No specific plans or album titles or songs yet ... just the desire and will to make it happen. Which brings up a few interesting questions for you, our kick ass fans ...
1) did you like MARC7?
2) do you dig Start It Over?
3) what's your dream Maktub recording senario?
I can't tell you that we'll follow your advice but it's fun to consider all of the above with the help of friends. One thing we've learned over the years is less planning is better for us. Well, maybe not less planning but fewer expectations about what's going to happen in the studio and what may come out of a given recording session. I used to use the over-used analogy of "hearding cats" as it relates to recording Maktub but anymore I think of it as juggling a dozen donuts while lying in bed. Pretty much impossible and if you just leave the donuts in the box on the counter it's much better for everyone involved. Unjuggled donuts are delicious in and of themselves.
Consider this: a box of unjuggled Maktub donuts in the recording studio with a MARC8 club yet-to-be-defined. Whet the appetite?
