On a slightly different note…

Although I haven’t been building many pedals lately I have been pretty busy with other music related stuff!

I recorded a 10 track demo with my band ‘This Fire’ on Sunday at Bulrush Studios in Minehead. It is a very rough demo, a lot of the songs were done in one take, but it was done to give us an idea of what needs changing before we record a 3 or 4 track EP either later this year or early 2013.  There are a fair few mistakes on some of the songs by all of us, but it serves it’s purpose very well. Which songs we will include on the EP is anyones guess, I would have thought both ‘Early Morning Rain’ and ‘Love And Poison’ will be included though.

Guitars used were a Dean acoustic through a Trace Elliot keyboard amp, PRS Custom 22 through a Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister 36, the phaser on ‘Freak Of Nature’ is an EHX Small Stone Nano although you can’t hear it very well on this recording. Most the clean electic parts have a Malekko 616 on them, and I used a cheapo Joyo Dynamic Compressor which was always on. Jon is playing a pearl drum kit he’s had since he was 18 but recently painted luminous green! Most of the kit was miked up individually but overhead mics to capture the cymbals. Matt is playing an Epiphone Thunderbird Pro IV  bass directly into the desk via a DI box – he had a bass amp in the studio with us but I can’t remember what it was. Shure SM58’s were used for both vocals and for miking both guitar amps, slightly off-center.
