Tuesday 22nd July 2008

Recorded vocals with Cath and Pete from Chronicity this evening. Nervous about mixing my first guitar-based venture. It's all in the drums: compression, limiting, too much, too little, this way, that way, up a bit, down a bit.

Their music makes for compelling listening. Pete and I talked long into the night about Penny Rimbaud and other such d.i.y. luminaries, and how a former band of his (Razorblade Smile) once shared a spot in an 1992 NME feature on exciting new bands with a group from Oxford called Radiohead. We were both adamant that the route furthest from the stadium concert gleans the best creative ventures.
