Last weekend the Maxines recorded a Girl Trouble song at Dub Narcotic Studio with guest vocalist Calvin Johnson. The song is “The Skin”, the purpose of the session was to draw attention to a campaign to fund the new Girl Trouble docu-drama, Strictly Sacred, being directed by Isaac Olsen. View a “Making of” video of “The Skin”!
Immediately following the recording session the Maxines jumped in the van to play a show in Seattle, which they transformed into a benefit for Northern, the downtown Olympia all ages perfromance space that was recently burgalized.
