I’ve had an offer that I can’t refuse…though I did actually ponder it for a good long while.
A chance to record at Neil Finn’s (Crowded House/Split Enz/Finn Brothers) studio Roundhead, NZ’s #1 recording facility.
My mate and I will be joined by Eddie Rayner (Split Enz keyboard wizard) and Michael Barker (former drummer for The John Butler Trio). Eddie (NZ’s foremost producer, who will of course be producing, playing keyboards and mixing), tabled the proposal after hearing a number of the tunes I and Shayne had been recording under The Stragglers banner - he liked what he heard and suggested we record them ‘properly’ in order to create a body of work of the highest posibble standards.
It’ll be an intensive one day session in Studio A - the big one! The plan is to get the foundations for five songs down including main vocals. I have aprehensions… but pretty excited too!
