Studio day 2 and 3

So it got busy and we got tired and we missed the daily blog entry (and it was only 3 days!!)

So here we go....

Day 2.

Straight back in and the kit was still there from the night before. Tom got back into it and we finished off all the guitar parts that were left to do.
Isolation took the longest because frankly we were trying to be clever ;-) But we like the result.
Karen then took her step into the vocal booth. We did all the songs but she was always a little off and uncomfortable it was only then we realise she can't hear much in the head phones.......Oh well.

Day 3.

So we are back in and with more energy and knowing where we went wrong the vocals came together ver nicely. It was much more powerful and we did the harmonies in a separate booth but live to Karen and it felt more natural and with a few practices of each song they sounded really big and rich. However Tom and Will may have made their own lives harder because Spin never used to have backing vocals......It does now!
We now have to wait for the mix down of all the songs, but we are expecting good things as Preppy (engineer) really knew what we wanted to hear and captured us very well for the EP.
We can't wait to hear the final till then!

Studio : Day 1

We have started (and finished) Day 1 of the 3 days in Valley Studios.
So Far we have been working very hard and achieved more than we thought we would.
Its hard to give a real feel for the songs as we have heard them in bits and pieces but so far its going well and we are on for a great session tomorrow.

All the drums and bass parts are down (although you never know what might change) and we have done 3 whole songs from both guitars.

Tuesday will start with Tom and his parts in Dig it Up and then we can finish Isolation (at nearly 8 minutes) Then its to all the vocals and harmonies.

We shall let you know more tomorrow!

The Joiners - What a gig!

This was our best gig to date and everyone we spoke to seemed to agree.
Before I start, a huge thanks to everyone for making the effort and for all the support at the gig.

This was a great venue, well run (they have been doing it a while), friendly and a great atmosphere.

All the bands were friendly and it was great to meet everyone.

TFT were really pleased with their performance and although we can always improve its nice to finish a gig happy!

The highlight of the gig had to be the "Arse Badges!" It got a laugh from the crowd and made the badges just that little bit more special!!!

Cheers to Echo Chamber for getting all badged up as well!

Thanks again to all and we hope to play there again soon! It was so much fun!
