Recording! Day One Posted on Saturday 19 March 2011

We’ve started recording our second album after months of playing, arranging, scrapping, re-demoing and going as far as we could with the new songs until a trip to a studio was all that remained.

As time is tight, I’ll let these pictures do the talking.

SCRABBLE REMNANTS
Ben Allen, the producer of these album sessions, is an old school Scrabble enthusiast and therefore anti-Lexulous. Leon won this round.

HORSES BY A QUARRY
Horses in Bethesda, north-west Wales, an old slate and stone quarry village. Dark blue-green slate from this area was once shipped all over the world. This quarry is five minutes from where we are. The horse on the left was used on the cover of Bill Callahan’s “Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle” 2009 album.
