At last we find time to start recording! Last night Wyn and Laurence laid down guitar and vocals for a new song “Over the Land” at Mike Hopkins’ “Towpath Studio”. http://www.towpathstudio.co.uk/
Mike has a sympathetic ear for acoustic instruments and this shows in last night’s recording (15/6/2010).
We plan to complete 6 tracks over the next few weeks ready for an EP CD release.
