Musings and a place to store stuff

Elemental Influence

An old band favorite 25 years ago, and recorded with Mike Brady on vocals, Chris Rees on drums and Eric Richards on bass in my spare bedroom in Calne. Still pretty basic stuff and a 4 track cassette tape being used to record everything.

Mike and I wrote this in the passage out to the garden and liked the fact that the verse was in seven four timing. We recorded this years later in a proper studio but the drums never sounded as good as they did here. Eric and Chris spent a day cellotaping microphones to the ceiling because we had no mike stands to record the drums, and some of the microphones were so sensitive that we put them under a pillow in the next room.
