A quick update from the Band With… [actual band name coming soon].

We spent nearly twelve hours in the studio this weekend. Guitar overdubs went down and I was reminded of just how sublime a great guitar solo can be. Our special guest, keyboard wizard Colin Henney arrived in the afternoon for many hours of, “I think it’s a D minor with a flattened 11th, but inverted” conversations ending with many great tracks of piano, Moog and Fender Rhodes.

While we were all extremely happy with the sound of the instrumental parts it was getting late before we could start on the vocals. It turns out that delicious, home-made cake and freshly brewed espresso just aren’t enough to overcome the feeling of being knackered. So, just before 11:00pm we stopped, vowing to return as soon as possible to complete the work.

We did achieve a lot though. Now we just have vocals, handclaps and mixing to go. Stay tuned.
