Yeah baby! That’s what I’m talkin’ about. What a brilliant club to play in. Fantastically huge stage, superb acoustics and, most importantly, a great audience. We haven’t had that many people up and dancing for I don’t know how long. Pete, Jamie and I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone at the H&D Social Club for asking us to play there. We hope we can come back soon. Here’s the set we played:…[more]
I remember back to around 15 years ago when I first went in to a recording studio. It was both exciting and scary at the same time. The experience was a new one to me, as it was for the rest of the band I was in at the time. It was scary because of the expense. The pressure was on because we could only afford a limited amount of time. Mistakes cost money. I recall…[more]
Ok. So what do we use and how do we use it? Let me firstly describe our acutal recording process. In it’s simpliest form we do it like this: 1. The band plays the whole song together and that is recorded on to a stereo track using a Boss BR-600 2. Jamie then lays down the drum track on to a new stereo track on the Br-600 whilst listening to the original recording through headphones. As…[more]
This is where the fun begins. I got a Boss BR-600 in May/June of 2010 as I had loads of ideas for songs but no real way of getting them recorded. I didn’t know whether to go for the BR-600 or the BR-900 but after a good chat with the ultra helpful (and very knowledgeable) chaps at Nevada Music I settled on the 600. After getting it home and having a play around it quickly…[more]
Here it is! Our first couple of demo tracks. They may be a little rough around the edges but keep in mind that it was recorded using an old dictaphone and the 8-track out of Pete’s Cortina. Let us know what you think. Click here to listen.
You’ve almost certainly already read about the massive New Years Eve gig we’re playing at The White Horse, Netley Marsh so rather than bore you with all those details yet again and to try and keep our ranking in the major search engines, here’s a picture of Sam Fox. The Lovely Sam Fox
Word is spreading. Pete got a call from the chaps at The Hythe Social Club, Hythe this morning begging for us to play there (well maybe not begging but they were as keen as mustard!). By all accounts someone connected to the social club had seen us at The Malt and Hops on the 24th July. A word here, a whisper there and bang, we’re booked to play on Saturday 28th August 2010. This is…[more]
Right, it’s like this. We love playing at the RBL, Blackfield. The reception we get is always second to none. What’s also good about playing there is the fantastic feedback we get. This is invaluable and helps us, as a band, get better. All I can say is that we were blown away by the reception and comments we got from everyone at the RBL tonight. You guys rock. We’re very pleased that you like…[more]
