New Songs

November 14, 2008

My mum just brought me a bowl of chookie egg and toast. Boiled eggs all mashed up with butter in a cup. Mmmm.

Last night I decided to let my brother hear the new songs we recorded so I played them in the living room and my mum walked past pretending to sing like Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol loudly over the top of it. The songs don’t sound anything like Snow Patrol. I think Ronnie sings more like Kermit the frog.

We finished recording a few songs at the weekend with Jimmy the engineer, Greg Barnes and Gordy from GoGoBot. Everything seemed to come together really well considering Greg and Gordy only had one practice a couple of days beforehand.

Jimmy put a lot of effort into getting the best out of what we had. We must have drunk a good few barrels of tea and coffee and smoked a field of tobacco as it got late into the night. During the day we ate like kings with steak pies at the Bon Accord (£4.50 for two courses – win!), mighty burgers at Nice n Sleazys and kebabs from Chillies on Woodlands Road.

The songs will be mixed soon and I’ll let you all know when and where you can hear them.

On a completely seperate topic I’ve got a bit of an obsession with the Cheers Theme tune (A PLACE WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS YOUR NAME!). I listen to it daily. Because I’ve been offline and don’t have a copy of it downloaded I’m feeling a bit lost without it. Enjoy it on behalf of me:
