gin, a man’s drink?!
March 20, 2020
so my new drink of choice is gin… it used to be brandy, but that’s so passe. it makes you feel old and bloated, like ya dad on christmas day, passing out in front of the queen’s speech or some crappy animated show about poverty. but gin… god, it’s a different league. it’s got that element of class (not femininity) about it. people think it’s a girls drink, but i’m all man, so i wear it well. but whatever, it sips well, and gets you pissed.
i’m currently sat in the control room of the studio, in front of a table full of jack daniels, southern comfort, gordons gin and sloe gin. they sit amongst the biggest array of dried fruit and nuts you’ll ever see. we’ve spent the past 4 days recording the live tracks for 10 of our songs. looking at the alcohol at this time of day makes me feel giddy, but i know it will help us get through the final 4 songs tonight.
we’re about to start the tracking for Time now. we’ve just finished Lightbulbs and it’s sounding super. we completed Cliffer and It’s Over, It’s Over, It’s Over yesterday and they are sounding really experimental. It’s Over is taking on some interesting influences. i don’t really wanna jump the gun, but this record may even have samples of trumpets and strings on it. then again, it might not. we really are leaving things til the last minute to keep the ideas fresh and spontanious. we work best this way.
i hate blogging as i have nothing clever to say. but this is my first attempt so i’ll try and get better.
anyways, i’m needed now, so i’ll write again soon.
p.s. a question that was troubling us yesterday: do nuts grow on trees? that sounds right, but there surely isn’t a peanut tree?!
