Jam Session Rewind: 111l -- The Noisy Jam

This week's rewind, Jam Session 111l (15:16; see original show notes), was a fun, disgustingly long, super-noisy bit of rock 'n roll.  We had an unmanned guitar on a guitar stand, plugged in to an amp.  My brother Jon played a guitar but also controlled foot pedals for the effects attached to his guitar and the unmanned guitar.  I played the bass at times, and at other times I smacked the unmanned guitar to play a chord or two.  There are no overdubs; all instruments were recorded at the same time.  The drum beat was a bit reminiscent to Nine Inch Nails' "March of the Pigs" (but slower).  Anyhow, take a listen:

We've challenged ourselves to, instead of creating Jam Sessions, create Recording Sessions next time around (in a couple of weeks).  In other words, in place of quickly-created chord progressions and improvisations, we're going to take a bit more time and make some quickly-recorded -- yet full-realized -- songs.  It will be quite the challenge for your Jon and Ryan, your Chord du Jour hosts!  Can we do it?
