A Yorkshire conversation...

With that one I just kept going recording - I think I had 4, 5, 6 different ones I was messing with but in the end they kept angling toward Alabama so that’s what I played.

A few years ago we had the idea to do a Miles Davis/Aphex Twin crossover but what came out was pretty much just our shit but with a pulse – sometimes. There was this thing I was doing with a deodorant can and I got it to sound like a horse neighing - it took hours to find that sound again because we weren’t recording and I can’t remember what I did.
I played horn parts through a zoom mic with headphone spill. He played spoons on chairs and guitar solos.

It was a lot of semi-improv, starting and stopping. I think if you think of the drums as hyper-programmed, it would be true but it was more improv than it sounds. We could just jam on top of them.

The first one was also the last one, it took ages to make the beginning sound less wanky (probably still does!) but there’s some nice quiet parts and solos and back and forth.

I played a lot of long notes, they always sound cool. I got to play some guitar too and actual chords.

James likes quiet, long notes that trail off toward the tail. One of the problems was getting those to sit right in the bassier tracks. One solution was to just put them under the sink and leave them there. At least four tracks they just sit there under the chaos.
