ENUFF Z'NUFF: In Mixing Mode

ENUFF Z'NUFF frontman Donnie Vie recently spoke to antiMUSIC about the progress of the recording sessions for the group's new album, "Lost in Vegas". "At the last moment we totally turned the whole ENUFF Z'NUFF record around and it's amazing," he said. "The reason it's been delayed is that I didn't want to put out another record that wasn't up to z'snuff. It started out with me having to tweak songs I wrote for my solo projects to fit the Z'NUFF sound. But we tossed all of that out and wrote new ones in traditional ENUFF Z'NUFF form. It's in the process of being mixed. And a limited collectors' edition will be available at Rocklahoma. We're also planning on filming that performance for a DVD."

Donnie has also been hard at work with his new band L.A. SMOGG, a band he started so he could create music that doesn't have to conform to the Z'NUFF sound. He found his perfect partner in crime by posting a MySpace bulletin looking for musicians that might be interested in the group. Out of the hundreds of responses, the name CJ Szuter stood out to him, having been a big fan of CJ's work in THE SZUTERS and MAGNA-FI. He knew that he and CJ would get along musically, but little did he know that he had found a musical blood brother. "I'm CJ's biggest fan," Donnie said. "In SMOGG he's the McCartney to my Lennon; we're sharing lead vocal duties and complementing each other perfectly. We also got our Ringo Bonham, he goes by the name of Vic Alfaro." He added, "We got two brand tracks up on our MySpace and some videos. And we're tracking the rest of the album. This is the band I've always wanted to be in. After too many years of compromising by taking it in the ass musically, I'm finally achieving the musical goals that I've always dreamt up. There is strength in numbers here. I know you're gonna love what you hear!"
