So after the usual panic on first listen back, (when everything sounds awful and you think you’re after wasting a load of time and money!…oh the joys), Donal got stuck in and started doing some quick mixes. The tracks immediately started coming together. They’re sounding like a proper band – unlike our first recordings which were done in a mad rush during stop start sessions. Overdubs and bits to do still… but we may have actually pulled it off. Album is on track.
Go on Felix! What a shot – and a really nice version too, without vocal and main guitar! Lots more of this to come…
Just started going over Felix’s footage from the tour. There’s some wonderful stuff. Check this clip out from our gig at Brogans Bar last Thursday night.
On Monday afternoon, just before I headed to the airport we managed to squeeze in a slot on the wonderful Radio na Life. Niall Mc, Jeremy and I headed into the studio and did three quick takes of Rebel Charm, Grand Canal Dock and Don’t Give in. I even had to speak cupla focal Gaelga! Great end to an amazing week!
After an exhausting day in the studio we headed for Dublin Saturday morning. Straight to my hometown of Rush. Flying visit with friends and family, great gig and then into town after. Few tinnies. Up early Sunday for load into The Old Storehouse. Sound checked and on stage by 3pm. Bit of a mad rush trying to get people in cause The Fureys were sold out. But we kicked off and lashed through a decent set. Then we all hit a wall! Wrecked. Rick’s Burger did the trick but! And relax. Sweeney’s for pints.
