We recorded drums on a few songs with Damon Wilson over Easter (another bearded bandit… and a fellow Aussie as well)… he’s drummed with a host of big names and immediately brought a lot of energy to the process. He seemed to dig the songs as well, which helps.. so i will be keen to share the end result with him.

i started writing this the other week - it’s a raw “first-take” demo of the first couple of parts of the song, which i will then build upon. It kind of takes me back to a nostalgic burt bacharach/carpenters vibe, which i like - there is such magic in those classic pop songs - and karen carpenter’s voice is hypnotic. i want to keep this song sparse and under-produced. i also have a seriously seriously sad outro up my sleeve…

as in the words of the late elliott smith at a gig in brisbane many many years ago… “so do you want a sad song, or a really really sad song?”

studios are terrible places, full of so many knobs (as well as knobs). they can be so stale and it can be hard not to get lost in the equipment. that’s mark (producer) on the right… he’s got a beard, which adds some serious credibility to our process - especially given beards are highly respected in the music industry at this current time

throw your head up…. small idea in the wings

work small, think big… it’s amazing what you can do with a room, a few wires and some electricity these days
