It’s answering machine bassist and table tennis extrordinaire Gemma here.
After three weeks recording in our countryside retreat Warren House Farm it was finally time to pack up and head down to the big smoke to get involved in some mixing. I was sad to have to leave my beloved table tennis table behind, but after a while, winning all the time became a little dull! And i’m sure repeatedly losing to a girl was doing nothing for the lads’ confidence levels. So off to London with us where we must survive on our own, prepare all our own meals, navigate public transport and even spend money from our own pockets.
Although i’m not in the studio for the next three days (alas i write this from my office desk) i can imagine that currently pat and martin are sat with a bottle of evian in hand swapping the same old crude jokes with Dave whilst getting quite excited at how amazing things are sounding. After so long imagining what our debut album is going to be like it feels a little strange to be increasingly close to actually finding out. Ideas about artwork are getting banded about and even the scary question of what is actually going to be on the album has been raised. God knows how we’ll pick the first single!
Right this has taken me about an hour to write as i keep having to tab off screen everytime my boss walks in and pretend like i’m doing some work (in case your wondering i haven’t actually done any work today, unless you count www.yearbookyourself.com as work, hours of fun!)
Coming soon: A picture of Ben and Martin in matching woolly jumpers looking like two metrosexual guys from a 1970’s catalogue. It must not be missed!…
