Mark it Zero (demos & outtakes) / THE BLACK PENGUINS 2011

Five years ago 3 dudes met on Craigslist, not the personal section, and made an album called “Mark it Zero” was recorded from Feb 20th to Feb 25th at warehouse #37 Gasoline Alley Chico, CA. It was cold, damp and noisy. These are the live stereo recordings made during practice on a Zoom H2.

Al Carter …. Drums, electronic drums, noises
Dave Emmert …. Bass, noises
Eric Toledo …. Guitar, samples, keys, programming, noises

It was released on Bandcamp on March 12, 2011. It’s available for free, just click the download button. It won’t hurt I swear.

Many thanks to Al & Dave for joining forces with me to create The Black Penguins. Couldn’t of done it without you.
