Live in Point Arena

By Carlton Melton


'Live In Point Arena' was recorded during a full moon on the evening of July 18th, 2008. It wasn't a live show but more a gathering of friends and folks to play some ‘head music’ at Brian's home which happened to be a geodesic dome and ideal for those types of sounds. I recorded the evening on a M-Audio handheld recorder duct taped to the wall/ceiling of the North side of the Dome. When I got back to San Francisco a few days later I immediately crushed the audio to 4-track cassette tape on a Tascam 424. Upon listening back I thought this stuff sounded cool and shared it with Andy. We then burned some cd-r's to give to friends and likeminded folks. Andy dropped off a copy to Scott Hewicker at aQuarius records in San Francisco and they liked it enough to request a few cd-r’s to sell at the shop and also posted a kind review by Scott. Then there were more requests for the cd-r's and we burned some more ( like 70 or so ) and that was that... 

Until now 13 years later and our friend Désirée kindly asking if she can release the cd-r recording on vinyl on her label with some added bonus bits recorded that same evening. We thank you Désirée and Lay Bare Recordings.

Andy had brought up his guitar and amp and used it on 'happy song', 'against the wall', 'full moon ridge', and the bonus tracks 'thirst cycle' and 'purer’ (extended). Andy also got on the drums for 'fucking funky shit' and bonus tracks 'another log on the fire', 'speeditup', and 'rubbery room'. Brian got on the drums for 'happy song', 'against the wall' and the bonus track 'purer’ (extended). Andreas stopped by and played drums on 'full moon ridge'. I played guitar and synth throughout the evening. Some other folks stopped by throughout the night offering shout outs and guidance. It was a special night and eventually forged the beginnings of the musical group Carlton Melton. We hope you can find some joy and amusement with this blast from the past. Long Live Dome Rock.
