It's all looking a bit quiet on the gigs front for the rest of the month, so we came up with an idea.
Since our YouTube page is looking pretty bare at the moment, we're gonna record an acoustic set and stick it up.
It might be better if we have a small number of people there to set an atmosphere, so I just wana find out if anybody would be interested in coming to see us record it. It would probably be someone's house in the Tarbert or Listowel area.

Late enough start today. Spent three hours setting up equipment, then Spud and Alan arrived and we found out there was a pretty serious problem with the mixing desk. But after about an hour or so we decided to just run the drums on one channel. So, Will and Spud got working on the drum sound being perfect, and Me, Niall and Alan went to town for food.
Two hours later, and we had two drum tracks down.

Bit of a disaster today.. Got one drum track and one bass track down.

Back on track! No Niall today, but we got loads done. Lay it on the Line is 90% finished. Got two more drum tracks down, and wrote a bitching ska-style bass line for Punch the Government. Coulda done with another hour or so, but it's all good. Also, got Need For Speed Undercover 14% completed
Bring on day four.

Early start this morning, but it paid off. STILL not finished, but we have loads of vocals down, and a fair bit of mixing too. Niall's vocals are sounding AMAZING, but Chris' still need a bit of work. I know we've said this before, but we should be finished tomorrow Actually, we NEED to be finished by three o clock tomorrow.
