Shining Scribes • “Fade Away”

Throwback to 1994 when I performed bass in the band Shining Scribes. Based in the East Bay, we released a self titled EP that was recorded and mixed by Damien Rasmussen at Dancing Dog Studios in Emeryville, and mastered by Ken Lee at Rocket Lab in San Francisco.

“Fade Away” video was directed by my brother Brad Ramos, filmed on his 8mm camera. The video had been living on a U-Matic videocassette for 20 years, until I recently had it digitally transferred.  After replacing the audio from an EP CD, and some tweaks on iMovie, “Fade Away” is here to stay.
