Lockdown has given us the impetus to do some serious recording. With a heavy live gigging schedule with both Silverthorn and Metanoia, Ruth and I talk about “finding the time to record” but in reality, you need an extended period of time to do it.
This week we took our favourite hymn* and did a full on Metanoia production of it.
With a distinct lack of drummers in our house, we created them from scratch ourselves one afternoon in software. Then guitars, bass and vocals and the addition of a crowd shouting faintly in the background.
I think we successfully channeled the spirit of Britain in 1977.
We’ve been talking on messenger about our next lockdown project. We think we can work out how to get CJ on drums and Bex singing backing vocals all through the power of the internet. Watch this space!
*favourite hymn is a movable feast.
