A Slight Return….
And so we’re back….. from outer space… oh no, sorry that wasn’t us, that was Gloria Gaynor. We’re back from Middlewich. We are now firmly back in reality after spending the last 5 days holed up in Big Mushroom with Jim Spencer recording the final 3 tracks of our second album. Highlights this week have included; fashioning cybermen out of tinfoil, patented cheesy crumpets, making Martin Blunt (bass player from The Charlatans) a brew, watching some vintage episodes of 3,2,1 and getting through an entire day without any beer at all (only one day mind).
Stu has been been jetting into the studio between managing his hedge funds and gracing the hallowed turf at Anfield (well, you’ve got to keep your options open) whilst Chris packed Clare off to the studio alone in order to languish in tranquility and watch films he’s not allowed to watch when she’s at home (ahem). This meant that it was left to Jamie, Marcy, Matty and Clare to keep up the pretence of being professional musicians and play that funky music. Thanks to a largely vegetarian diet, copious amount of coffee, and Tesco value cider that tasted like it had been strained through orchard worker’s underpants they managed to do it.
We’ve still got a little bit of reads magic to work before Jim can get his big digital spoon out to start mixing, the process Jamie eloquently refers to as ‘polishing the turd’. Don’t forget if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on a copy of the new album you can do so via Pledge Music; http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/6724
In other news we are making a return to Audlem Music Festival this weekend. We’re playing in a new venue for us, The Bridge Inn (down by the canal) at 4.00pm on Sunday (26th May) so come on down and join us if you are about. It’s Chris’ birthday weekend so I imagine there will be some drink taken. That should make putting the tents up later that evening highly entertaining (for any bystanders atleast).
Right then, we’re off to eat some cake. Until next time….. don’t have nightmares.
