3 days, 2 guitars, 1 dulcimer & 5 slabs of beer
Apart from the cow disasters, we did manage a little joy over the festive season. Friend and long time musical colleague of G-Man's, Phil (Beck) Beckett came to stay over. We recorded this over a couple of intense days. Beck is an amazing drummer, but also plays guitar and writes a mean pop song. His is the first track - Last Day which, as it turns out, we did on New Years Eve.
G-Man is main vocals and guitar and I'm doing harmonies and playing Dulcimer. It's rough and ready, but it's all recorded on the fly with no electronic footling or overdubbing later on - what you hear is what we played, live in the Green Room (our studio).
A total hoot, and about the best fun to be had in the breezy cool of under-the-house with an instrument in your lap and a couple of slabs of beer at hand. What can I say - it's damn thirsty work.
Track 4 is for you HVK - a theme song.
