Friday, a good one. A good one to meet up with Julian after these past months and spend 24 hours on the songs. We’re getting them prepped for the arrival on Sunday of Captain Mix. Adding a bit of top, moving faders up and down, turning up the guitars, that kind of thing. Only problem I see is the one song with 52 tracks, of which 40 are guitars. Hmm, do we really need all of them? Oh yes, I hear Julian say.

To prepare mentally I’m playing Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie Prince Billy’s What the Brothers Sang. Very beautiful and beguiling record. The two tracks I play repeatedly are My Little Yellow Bird and Omaha. Extraordinary songs and fantastic production. A joy on this freezing cold sunny morning.

I’ll do updates as the week progresses.

    This news makes a little corner of Croydon very happy. Can we have it on vinyl please? We can? Excellent.

    Please tell Julian that 40 guitar tracks are nowhere near enough x

    I agree with Martin. Good to see it’s still moving along nicely.

    taken the chill out of a snowy and freezing cold week in north yorkshire, agree with martin, only 40 guitar tracks, never enough, loose the triangle and there’s room for more.
