As I’ve still plenty of time to spare at the mo I thought we could have a bit more fun together.Each day I will post up 2 albums that I’ve recorded (in order) to remind you (and me) of all the tracks on them and also say a few words about each. Just to remind you that all these albums are still available from our website shop either as whole album downloads, whole album hard copy CDs (which I will post to you) or if you prefer you can download any track individually.
Recording ‘Amazin’ was great fun as After the Fire joined me and we recorded ‘Live’ in a church hall. This was one of the first recordings where ‘worship’ lyrics to put to rock music and I remember the producer thinking it was blasphemous. Ok the qualities not good but I think the listener can still sense the fun that ‘me and the lads’ had together.
‘Saved & 30’ were both studio albums but I enjoyed recording ‘Saved’ far more than I did ’30’ Rev Counta was far more serious in every way than the crazy Ish Utd.
