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.
Another cracking drum session at NJA with Niall Acott – great drum sounds immediately, and this time I had the guide stems all ready – so no hanging around!!
Just spent a day laying down the Drums parts with Niall Acott at NJA Audio Productions for the first 6 tunes from The Dees‘ new album.
Today I popped to visit Niall Acott down Maidstone way, and we recorded the drums for one of his tunes – “Faith Forever” – at Ten21 Studios.
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.
Niall Acott’s studio in Maidstone – NJA.me.uk – Great for all kinds of music and production projects. Niall can do “in studio” or “OB”, whatever you need. Just this last weekend we did some work at NJA.me.uk – Electric Drums, sequencing, accoustic & electric guitars, vox and keybdoards. Great.
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.
Another fabulous get-together at Dreambags. Thanks Nik.
The Showcase for The Dees, The Album, in July 2004 at the Union Chapel in Islington, London. Right near Highbury Corner. Photographs by Conal Jones. Sound by Niall Acott. Lights and drama by Dan’s mates, inclluding Andy Audsley.
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.
Took a few pics in The City to go with some promotional gig material.
We had the privilege of recording a whole album with Niall Acott at Angel Studios. All Live, no clicks, and just a smidgen of me screaming (unknowingly) whilst recording my drum parts. Recorded in 2 days – 17th & 18th September. Mixed and produced by the fantastic Niall Acott over the following weeks.
