Update From The Studio #3
The last day.
Man, that went fast. 8 tunes, 3 days. Very happy. Great studio, great engineer and great band. I'm a lucky guy.
For the most part, I only ever played one guitar and one amplifier, the no longer rented (now bought) Fender Telecaster and my Bludotone Bludodrive, 'Mabel. Only pedal I used was a tuner and my Pete Cornish boost for one solo. My trusty old 1934 National guitar made it on a track too. Only other effect was the Fulltone Tube Tape echo our engineer, Anthony used on my solo tone. This was definitely done in the true spirit of what we set out to do. Minimal fuss, just simple, raw, great sounds. Trying to capture performances.
Michael Coakes, a friend of mine and a fantastic photographer, took some cracking photos, again in the spirit of our 'vintage vibe' recording. Check out these polaroids.
Cheers, and can't wait to share the new stuff with you!
