16th Oct Larry the run up
This was done in Bristol and I used different equipment, it wasn’t the easiest to set up and in hine sight I’d prefer to keep it to my home setup for the time being. I found that setting up we talked loads about things that when we actually had the mics on just didn’t come across the same as we’ve already talked about them. My location in South wales doesn’t really help as not a lot of people make there way over.

L: 16 might be it, but Dan has grand plans and if we go right back tot the start of that erm, this band was just meant to be a practice room and it’s a great way to have a bit of stage fright therapy erm you know love a bit of that. You know, just get some things out and enjoy making noise again. And Dan was like no no don’t worry it won’t get serious, but then 16 weeks is pretty serious. So we’ll see.
We talked about band life and his band – The Run up, we also mention the music video I produced for them
