Fried Egg After Nude
Yes, a good day. Cold and soggy outside, warm and creative inside.
From my point of view I was a bit crusty and rusty, also somewhat under the weather.
It took me ages to get my stuff sorted out having not gotten my act together before hand.
Using a guitar/amp and FX borrowed from friend 'JB' (which infact I used on ASR's very first session) along with new toy Ebow and my old Ensoniq keyboard with a stuck key, it was all a bit confusing for me. Too many options perchance.
Phil and Ian were champing at the bit to play the stuff they'd been working on while I pfaffed about.. Still eventually we had a bit of gelling towards the end.
Trying the ebow for the very first time. It's a powerful sound and easy to over do but fits right in with the sounds we're making.
Gotta sort out more practice times..
Oh, the picture is by Felix, my youngest. 'Sludge Bunt' sounds like a good RIP title..
