Blog: Finished!

< previous next >
At about 8 o'clock last night Tom and i headed into Launceston to get our CELEBRATORY CURRY, and by the time we got back the album was FINISHED. As mentioned yesterday, i think, we spent most of Friday listening through the tracks, checking everything was done, and doing a rough mix. As is the way with these things, the mixes got ROUGHER, also QUICKER, as the day went by, but at about 11.30pm last night we'd finished curry and were physically and emotionall ready to LISTEN at last to the first version of "A Fridge Full Of Nice Things".

It's FAST! I mean, it's REALLY FAST! It could be the BEER and CURRY consumed combined with the out and out KNACKEREDNESS of many of our number, but by the time we were four or five songs in we were WORN OUT. It was a bit of a surprise to be honest, we hadn't realised we'd gone AT it quite THAT much, but it certainly SOUNDS dead good, and HEY! there's nothing wrong with UPTEMPO and URGENT, right?

There'll be a LOT more listens to come, and some definite TWEAKING, but goodness ME we have WORKED HARD while we've been here - we've finished fourteen songs! In six days! (Tim points out that maybe this is the reason it's so fast...) It is surely TESTAMENT to our DISCIPLINE and goodness me ROCKING TIGHTNESS that we've managed to do it all, but i must say I am looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend of NOT sitting doing puzzles in the studio and/or ROCKING OUT with my AXE.

The packing has begun ready for the trip home, and soon all this will be a oddly COMPRESSED memory of a GRATE week. We have worked for you pleasure, dear readers!
