Men at work

Sunday 30th July was a very long and busy day for the Blokes with our first proper recording session in a proper recording studio at Mooncalf Studios.  

It kind of took everyone by surprise just what hard work it was to get 20+ blokes to avoid making different mistakes at different times so we could at least manage to cobble together a whole song from the various fragments that were any good!

Having said that we nailed one or two pieces in one take but with some others the intentionally tricky harmonies took a little longer to get right.  Still, overall, some very pleasing results and a great learning experience.

The final versions will be making themselves onto a CD entitled "A Taste of The Magnificent AK47" very soon ready to be unleashed on an unsuspecting public at our gig with The Spooky Men's Chorale in just over a week's time.  Which reminds us, we better get on and do some tuning up before the "Spooky Summer of Love" starts rolling through the countryside.

More soon.
