The actual recording went pretty smoothly. We used a couple of headphone jack splitters so we all had our own head phones. Nick was just using some ipod earbuds with ear muffs over the top which worked a treat. Ran out of pre-amp channels on the audio interface, so I got out my old 4 track tape recorder and routed the guide guitars, bass and vocals through that. Luckily I hoard shit - I knew that thing would come in handy one day! There was a massive storm just before we were about to start, with wind bellowing through the airconditioner and getting all up and in the face of our strategically placed under cymbal overheads…and then it stopped, just like that. Just in time for us to blast through 6 songs.
Anyway, check out the video - it's just a rough mix of Nick bashin' away for half a minute or so, but you get the gist. Next up - hmm, I don't know. Guitars maybe.
