On 30 July we decided to turn Julian’s office at The Jam Factory into a studio. We hired Rossco to mic everything up and recorded 7 songs straight to 2-track.
You can hear them – warts and all – here. It was hot. It was fun. We learnt a lot. And the warts were far outweighed by the beauty spots. All-in-all we’re pleased with the outcome and hope you like the tracks. Please give us your feedback here.
We decided to play at a party my back garden the night before the Cowley Road carnival. Had a great soundcheck. Took 90 minutes and by the end of it we were ready to rock.
Only problem was that I forgot to OK the open air gig with the neighbours, who quite rightly complained bitterly and we decided to pull the plug. We packed the gear up and played 4 songs with an acoustic guitar and a tambourine instead.
Anyway, it was definitely the best soundcheck we’ve ever done.
The rig was superb – a KV2 system supplied by Rossco PA and Sound Design. Like a loud hifi. Too loud as it transpired.Thanks to Mark Kozuch, for setting up so effortlessly and creating such a great sound. He was very good at packing away too – very quick.
We promise to take what you say and turn it into actionable bullet points
