Recording Day One: Thursday 18th June
Kenny had set the mics up overnight ready to record …we are trying for a live feel with most of this album …so we are recording drums, bass and guitars at the same time ..so if anyone makes a mistake it’s back to the beginning!
I’m upstairs in the control room with Kenny, set up with my pedals and microphone for guide vocals. This time Bernard is also upstairs, with his amp in the live room ( modern technology phew !! ).
We usually run through the song a couple of times, sorting out tempo or endings and beginnings but what we are really looking for is the right feel …there are no rules … if it feels right then we go with it. We do one or two takes of each song … Kenny usually gives us the thumbs up if it feels right! I think we did three songs on day one, adding some overdub guitars …
