The Recording Process

Everyone donated loads of time and effort for very little reward! Dave owes a massive thank you to everyone.

The rhythm section (including guitar and keys) was recorded live in the studio across a few weekends. The idea was to maximise the amount of interplay between band members. Virtually everything from these sessions was kept and even a few scratch vocals made it to the finished album. Everyone collaborated on the arrangements and grooves.

Most overdubs were done at Dave's home studio (aka "the wife's office") and Les's recording studio (aka his dining room).
