Magic Ship were back in the studio last night for the third and final recording session for the first five tracks from the difficult second album. There is a point where recorded tracks gel and become songs and to me that felt like it happened last night. Particularly with 'Painkillers and Pride'. It's always been a good song, but I never feel we play it very well, but last night with acoustic guitars added the song seemed to have finally come good. I have no idea what the rest of the overdubs last night sounded like because we worked at such a rate that there was barely a chance to hear anything back. As long as no one was grimacing then it was pretty much a take. Lead vocals, backing vocals, acoustics, tambourine, lead guitar. It's all there. Finished the last note of the last overdub at 11.59pm. Now that's working to a deadline!
