Was it because Dick Dale was there in the 60’s, having a great time, and we wanted to be there too? Was it to see whether using exactly the same instruments, microphones, recording techniques and studio setups would produce the same results as it did in the 60’s? Was it a protest against the trend of preset using laptop music makers by bringing together a set of top session players? Was is because we all fancied being the heroes of a Tarantino film?
I guess it was a bit of every thing. Some of the highlights were having Pete from The Vacinnes take time out of his touring to play some bad ass drums. Doran Edwards from ‘Weird Dreams’ takes to the ‘Gretsch’ through an AC30 in Geoff’s stairwell in East London. Aaron Liddard, who’s endless list of credits include Prince, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Rose Royce blows on Tim’s track ‘Pulp Fever’ and last but not least Chris Whittingham plays the most beautiful Tremolo guitar on my ‘Raised in Fire’.
This picture is of Tim and engineer Robert King are laying down and Fender Jaguar part for ‘Running through Tokyo’ followed by some 60’s Luwdwig mother of pearl kit we grew seriously found of over during the making of the album.
