THAT IS TRUE THAT IS VERY TRUE
We had a bunch of songs that me and Cam wrote, and we went down into the studio and had a shitload of fun for a week, and recorded all the songs, and more that weren’t songs. It was with Rhys [Webb, bassist], and Jason Holt from Spectrum, and Coffin Joe played some drums, and Josh [Third, guitar] and Jerome from The History Of Apple Pie were twiddling knobs and playing a bit.
Tom [Furse, keyboards] played a bit of synthesizer, but mainly pointed to gadgets and unlocked little secrets for me and Cam. He’s one of those guys, where you feel like smoking a joint, and then Tom comes in, and one appears before he’s sat down. It’s like making a cup of tea for his grandma, or taking off his shoes. He walks in the door and rolls a big spliff.
This was all in their place in Dalston, it was pretty excessive and fun. Maybe it was for our benefit as tourists. Me and Cam were always writing hyper-crusty crack-addled pop music, like Royal Trux and The Velvet Underground, but they turned it into this musical tourist exploration of London subculture, doing long dub jams, and hyper-fast crack-punk. [Sighs.] We’ll put it out one day."
