Ready To Go
John is tuned up and tuned in, and Duncan can vouch for him.
Them Tasker Kids
SBT gets warmed up for a long day's drummin'. Jack gets his engineering face on.
Making A Start
SBT and John start learning how songs go, while Jack continues the engineering works.
SBT & John take a breather, giving Duncan an in to record some bass.
Beating The Odds (Literally)
Breaktime over, SBT has to tackle an absolute beast of a song. She not only tackles it, she puts her knee across its windpipe and renders it well and truly submissive.
Back At It
By this point in the long afternoon, John is pondering the nature of consciousness while also having the time of his life. You wouldn't know it to look at him, though. He is unreadable.
That's it, really. PEDALS!
At The End Of The Day, 1
First day of recording done, 6 drum tracks laid down & begging for mercy. This calls for a victory selfie.
At The End Of The Day, 2
Another victorious selfie, replete with face-pulling and a gun show.
Bass Commander Wilcox
Day 2, and Duncan is getting his fretless on.
See? The concentration is real (largely because John played a song in the wrong key the previous day, and we just had to rewrite his crib sheet).
John replaying some guitar tracks, Jack is patient with him while he does it.
And now for John to sing his hot little face off!
Double Bass Commander Wilcox
Just because you CAN add bowed double bass to a song, doesn't mean you SHOULD. (But we did, nevertheless.)
