day 4 of our Lendanear To Song in-print Festival: TAKE IT EASY, JACK EASY

Certainly after saying elsewhere on these pages this week that song-writers always seemed to me reluctant to discuss their methodology I have found, in researching Alan Bell´s biographical  items on line that he seemed to be the exception to that rule.

Day 3 of our Lendanear To Song in-print Festival: ACCIDENTS HAPPEN

Another song we recorded on that debut album was Doing The Spacewalk, a sweet little love song of three eight line verses with no bridge and no chorus, but with a compelling, driving guitar riff from Colin. We listened to Helen add her gorgeous vocals and told her how grateful we were as she stepped back out of the booth. We nipped back in and immediately begged Dave to distort the hell out of what we had just heard. He added echo and applied fade and fluffers and tweeters and all manner of stuff, until it sounded like Helen was hearing Colin´s lines from across the universe and was repeating them to a life form we had yet to meet.
