An eight-hour day in the studio with Gravy Spiders, which was enjoyable and very productive. We got drums, bass and all guitar tracks for two songs done, with vocals to do at another session next weekend. The songs sound powerful, abrasive even. As well as using my Fernandez for lead parts, the producer Calais got me to play a couple of his guitars for different purposes – a Gretsch semiacoustic for a clean arpeggio sequence and a vintage Gibson SG for some very thick and crunchy power chords. Eee, that were fun, that were.
