This album was recorded at Sertso Studio in Woodstock, NY during October of 2007 - a period that culminated in one of the infamously historic BLOB live shows, this one complete with interactive video at Woodstock's Byrdcliffe Theater on All Hallows Eve.
The show sent folks running out into the woods howling. We hope the album strikes a similarly visceral chord with any and all listeners!

Ted "Deadly Tedly" Orr - midi guitar

BLOB is a psychedelic experimental jam band, that focuses on recording their spontaneously created journeys that embrace a multiplicity of genres, taking their burgeoning legion of followers to exciting, energy and spirit driven spaces with each foray. BLOB is all about the moment, and those moments are eclectic, honest, and heart pounding. It is full-out instrumental playing within a stream of consciousness mindset that speaks to a world in desperate need of this level of immediate expressionism.

Ted "Deadly Tedly" Orr is a renowned guitar virtuoso and an innovator in the arena of midi guitar performance. He has recorded and/or performed with Sly Stone, George Clinton & P-Funk, Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Bad Brains, Gary Windo, Karl Berger, Creative Music Sudio Orchestra, Garth Hudson, Ismet Siral, Wadada Leo Smith, Nana Vasconcelos, Trilok Gurtu, Sonny Murray, Hunter S. Thompson, Buddy Miles, Swollen Monkeys, Stanley Jordan, 420 Funk Mob, Cacophonic Funk Mob, Winston Grennan, Futu Futu and others. Ted maintains a parallel career as an audio engineer; a unique talent that has given BLOB its public voice.

John "Geeze" Lindberg has been a seminal figure in the world of creative music for over thirty years, having toured worldwide performing his own work leading ensembles, with the String Trio of New York, and as featured bassist with artists ranging from Anthony Braxton to Wadada Leo Smith.
