"Gillespie" was for the most part recorded in winter 2009 at Sharkbite Studios in Jack London Square with our good friend Adam Myatt. A lot of tracking and knob tweaking was done at Hollis street, our home studio, throughout the year.
Before we get into the narrative behind the record, here's the track list:
Down by Law
The Other One
There'll be more about the record and news before the release date in July. In the meantime then "Down by Law" and "Bail Out" are up on our player for a listen.
thank you so much for visiting, we hope you love the new tunes and can't wait to see you all soon.
