Well, we managed to knock off 8 songs at Johns Green Door Studios.

‘Still have some guitar overdubs to do and I think I want to re-do a bass track, but overall, we got quite a bit done for two sessions of 8 hours. It’s nice not being in the studio for 13 hours – always felt like a bag of S*** after one of those marathon days. It has been a long time since I was able to spend two full days in a row playing – not bad work if you can get it.

As always, our host, John was surprisingly easy going considering the 8:00 am start times!

Now – time to start the NXNE stuff!

Well, we got quite a bit done today – 6 beds down, we’ll do the remaining 2 tomorrow and then the overdubs.

We haven’t picked the dates when we’ll do the vocals – that will be a couple of weeks once all the flu will have exited my lungs – still hangin on.

The next session will be tomorrow at 9:00 a.m.

So after much changing of schedules we finally roll into John Critchley’s Green Door studios today at 8am. Mark C is there now loading the drums in and starting to develop the drum sounds. I’ll be getting there in a bit (it’s just down the street from me).

Many thanks go out to John for putting up with our corporate time tables for this one – he’s not used to starting at such an ungodly hour!
