Yep. Studio two, the Beatles one, with my friend Nick Tilley from Devon. The proud result of just one hour’s rehearsal at my place beforehand.
It was a satisfying but nightmare gig – would you believe an engineer in the Mecca of recorded sound could be so incompetent? You can hear his unique contribution to the chaos by the cues he caused us to miss and the low frequency feedback he so kindly added to several songs. Complete fucking nitwit going by the name of Jamie. If it had been my gig I would have garrotted him. He knew he’d fucked us up and made himself very scarce afterwards.
Fortunately his senior colleague Paul managed to cobble these quite respectable recordings together nevertheless, but I can only dream of how ordinary (i.e. good) it would have sounded without yer Jamie’s unique contribution.
