We recorded tracks for four songs today. Drums, bass and guitars have been recorded. We just have vocals to record; well Miki does!

It’s sounding good!

Drumming, drumming, drumming…

We had a very early practise at a local studio, Studio DO – from 9 am to 11 am on a Saturday! I am way too old to get up that early.

Wasn’t too bad though, we started a new song and we should be recording in February.

Nice photo of Miki adjusting the, uh, I’m not sure what it’s called but makes a great noise pedal…

1st September

Good practise today. 1 new song completed. It has a cool mega-noisy part and some wierd time-changes. We also named the band.

New band!

So today, I had a third practise with the new bassist, Funatsu and along with Miki we are a band.

We have no name, only a sound. We will have a name, though. Still working on songs – Mawari Mawari Mawari is sounding better, though it’s difficult to play!
