Because of a recent post on facebook by a rabid fan, I finally got the kick in the pants I needed to complete this task of once and for all compiling, remastering, and releasing all of the Mehreideran recordings I have. If you are unfamiliar with Mehreideran, don't feel alone. We recorded music and performed sporadically in Fresno, CA in 2005 and 2006. We, being myself, Reid May (Trumpet Solo, Air Fresno, Time Phobia, Magic Whores, Pendulum, Soiled Doves), Greer McGettrick (The Mallard, Rademacher), and Mehran Herd, a.k.a. Eatcho. With tons of improvising, wildness, and weirdness, these recordings showcase our little slice of expression in the local music scene. For reasons I need to explore further before I rant on them too much here, it seemed like a sort of renaissance time in that town.

So within Mehreideran - As Seen On MySpace are all the digital and biological memories I have. If anyone reading this has anything to add to the archive, contact me: sweetsearecords[at]gmail.com.

After many recent episodes of using Trumpet Solo's "Hard Working Economy" as the intro song on the Dorktown Podcast, they have finally seized.  Hearing the hosts' cries for a new theme song, Reid composed and recorded one, just for them.  Check it out on the latest Dorktown Podcast, Episode 108.
 
 
The Fresnan writes about Reid being metal because he is donating all proceeds from his EP "Back To The Garage" to benefit Fresno, California's F.U.S.E. Fest, which is happening on September 30th and October 1st, 2011.

Reid originally created "American Let Down" in 2010, where most of the instrumentation and vocals were recorded in San Francisco, California.  He liked the song, but didn't feel like it was finished, so it was put off.

While staying in Fresno, California, in April of 2011, he reworked the songs structure, making it shorter, but Reid thought it still needed something.  The song was again put off to work on other projects.


Finally, after living in Springfield, Virginia, for about two months, the track was revisited.  The lead guitar was added, as well as a few other tweeks here and there, mixed down, and finally released as you hear it now.

Reid releases his new EP "Back To The Garage: A FUSE-fest Benefit EP" to do exactly what the title says. All proceeds from this album will go directly to fund his hometown's music festival, Fresno, California's FUSE-fest.

He participated in last year's festival performing as part of the metal outfit Trumpet Solo.
