New Album Recording Session

Last night we were back at Airplay Studios to start recording our follow up to debut album LoveTel Motel. We managed to track the basic layout of five songs. So far things are sounding good. After 4 hours of recording and playing ears and heads were tired, so it will be good to hear the work in progress next week when we go back to the studio to put down some more guitar and the vocals. New song 'Painkillers and Pride' was sounding good last night mainly because of the Hot Rods and shuffling beat that Dave was using. It's really defined the song. Once we put some acoustic guitars on it I think it will be a great Magic Ship tune. We played 'Gone Solid Gone' and 'Exasperation Station', these both go down a storm live. No surprise. Listening to the playback, they are both great songs. Foot tappers and hip swingers. Stay tuned for a few candid photos.

    Holding my breath for the release........

    When's it due out?....

    Maybe holding my breath 'til then isn't sensible :-)

    It's due out. Then it will be overdue. Then it will come when it comes. Then it will be a long time coming. Then it will arrive. With bells on.

    If you guys are going for a more 'live in the studio feel' then surely there *won't* be any bells on it?

    Had a listen to Grass Grows (I think that was the title) on Ad's YouTube last night. Love the feel of that one. Still in the work-up stage, I know, but that one could be a really groovy road-trip tune.

    Live bells!

    Yes - that Grass song might be good once we play it properly. I don't think I will be leaving the OTT delay on my lead sound though :-)

    I guess you could get Col to play the bells... it's not like anyone notices when he forgets to turn his volume up onstage :-)
