One of the two reasons I have been less prolific on these pages is that G.o.D. wrapped up its initial foray at 8pm last night. Growing Old Disgracefully managed to get itself a permanent (but not touring) guitarist and lay down 9 full tracks in less tha 16 hours in the studio. We have a full album of material. While the studio experience was chaotic, it was rather enjoyable (but tiring in extremis). Yesterday we had Jon P and his lovely fiance along for the ride, as well as John Harrison, our logistics bloke. Everyone there managed to end up in the vocal booth: doing lead vocals, sheep sounds, suggestive moaning, or even various types of backing vocals. They even managed to sneak in a few verses of the 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' while they were bonding as a backing group. Now John Haithwaite has to mix the album so we can get it out for July. Once they recover, various other members of the band will be posting their studio notes over on the band site.
