The news is coming thick and fast this week. The absolutely awesome Jason Steel will also be taking part in tapes 1 and wants to, and I quote, ‘tear shit up in Leeds’…

The very lovely Sam Isaac has agreed to feature in tapes 1 (which is extremely exciting), we’re recording with him the day after he plays in Leeds so would suggest you go along and see him at The Cockpit on Saturday 14 March and then catch tapes 1 for more Sam-related audio fun.

This should hopefully clear a few things up on how we’re planning to conduct ourselves:


The plan with the music side of things is to make things interesting by requiring the bands/artists to simplify their music, we aren’t quite going to ‘mtv unplugged’ territory but the space in which we record (Cam’s sexy basement…not a euphemism) means there are certain constraints we have to work within, and we’ve decided to embrace them wholeheartedly rather than try to claim we’ve got a full, orchestra-ready recording space. We reckon it should produce some interesting and cool results. Basically the output should sit somewhere between a gig, a rehearsal and an acoustic performance. Clear? Good.


As of now the art side of things is an open brief, we might change this but we’ll see how things progress. The reasoning is that keeping things open should result in cooler…results.
