Today had been planned for a while – the purpose was to finish off the Bass for all 11 tracks. Dan had done the 6 most familiar ones already.
We are officially part-way into our 11 tracks of a new album for The Dees. So it seemed right to meet up and discuss strategy.
Great rehearsal today. Another new tune. Another set of jokes and laughs about our accelerating decrepitude.
The Dees just spent a great weekend recording at NJA Studios in Kent – Niall Acott’s studio. 4 tracks laid down, including drums, perc, bass, guitar, vocals and plenty of overdubs. Niall Acott masterfully managed the whole thing. Brilliant.
I’ve added The Dees onto Google Plus here – THE DEES. Thinking is that we can sell the upcoming album we just planned via this route…. We’ll see.
I met up with The Dees fellas last night in Borough Market. We’re planning to record a new EP in Feb 2014 with Niall Acott (NJA Audio). Looking forward to it, but wondering what drums I will use.
This was one of The Dees’ last gigs before activities petered-out in 2007 ish.

We’ve just been in Studio with Niall Acott to some tunes for The Dees. This time it’s a 4 track EP, and a little rockier.

Did a shoot in the basement of Dreambags yesterday. Great setting. Not sure about me as subject matter…
The Dees are in Studio, at Angel Studios in Islington, London.
Great memories of a raucous gig at The Garage. We had a full compliment of backing vocals, from the amazing Rachel & Sarah.
Took a few pics in The City to go with some promotional gig material.
Last night we went to another great King Pleasure gig at 100 Club.
