14 November 2010 Bunker 2
Well, after a long time I have finally set up a new Studio in London! The management at Miloco Studios kindly offered me the chance to occupy a newly built room in their main complex in Bermondsey and I gratefully accepted it! I've spent the past week moving all my gear in and now I can get on with mixing the session I recorded in Dublin last month with a brilliant band called Funeral Suits.
It's really nice to have a base of operations again and I hope this will kick-start a new chapter of work over the coming months. It certainly seems the case so far, as all of a sudden the schedule is filling up!
'Til next time.....
22 November 2008 Pete Doherty Album Finished
November, and after 7 very productive weeks Pete's debut solo album is finished. As with making the 'Shambles' Shotter's Nation there were some highs and lows but I am delighted with the final outcome (as is Pete too). As you may know from reading the press Graham Coxon from Blur played guitar on a large number of songs on the album and bloody brilliant he was too! He really brought a lot to the sound of this album and I can't wait for people to hear it. Adam and Drew were on hand to provide the solid backbone of rhythm and groove we have come to know and love and Stephen 'Lord' Large tickles those ivories in the most fantastic way!
I think the press will be very surprised when they hear the record. It certainly takes Pete into areas he has not been before and I've got to say, Pete is in fine voice on this album.
I'll pass on a few titles, some of which I'm sure you may be familiar with. "Arcadie", "Last of the English Roses", "New Love Grows On Trees", "Sweet By and By" and a song which I think is one of the best tracks I have ever worked on in the studio called " A Little Death Around the Eyes", it's sublime! i can't wait to see what the world makes of it.
