Recording English Heretic for ‘Minor Characters’

English-Heretic01

Another day, another unnerving journey into the outer fringes of literature. Spent an enjoyable session last Friday in Parr Street Studios banging toms, acting out an imaginary sacrificial ritual and listening to English Heretic intone a Lovecraftian myth of the the post-apocalyptic future. Then we went for a nice tea round the corner.

If you’re not acquainted with English Heretic’s work, go and look him up here: http://englishheretic.blogspot.co.uk/

Overall, Minor Characters is shaping up to be a dark and heady brew. More to come from The Lone Taxidermist, Forest Swords, East India Youth and Luke Abbot.

 

 

Recording Ten Mouth Electron for ‘Minor Characters’

Just undertook the first day’s recording work on the Minor Characters project at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool. Myself and the band dragged our sorry selves out of bed at an hour on Sunday morning only priests should suffer. Fittingly, a truly unholy noise was made.

The Quietus & Arts Council UK ‘Minor Characters’ project

Over June and July, I’m going to be producing some of this, at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool.

The acts involved have all been asked to come up with a song or piece of music inspired by a minor character from fiction. I’m going to be recording and mixing about half of it, and doing a bit of organising and helping out with the rest.

Have been doing pre-prod for a while, and demos and snippets heard so far are very exciting. Can’t say too much right now, but here’s a photo of me and John Doran doing some highly industrious work with The Lone Taxidermist. As you can see, he’s made a large pot of tea and had his head converted into a Theremin; there’s no doubting that level of commitment.
