Their Heads Are So Small!
A Slow Rip got together this month for another quite wonderful session. Following our usual perusal of the raw recordings, we crowded round the PC this week to do some initial mixes before Rob went on a meditation retreat for 10 days! I certainly couldn't stand that long without some sort of entertainment apart from the little thoughts in my fat head. He's obviously a stronger man than me and... his head is thinner.
So here's a couple of teasers for the almighty 4th album (with titles of my own design):
I'd like this to be the 1st track. It starts off all droney and phased, just like many of our songs but it certainly changes into something completely unexpected - especially to us. I think I'm in there somewhere but it's mainly Rob and Ian.

This one shows off my new Alesis Ion quite nicely. It's definitely more polite than the venerable Arp Odyssey but the sounds it can create are fantastic anyway. Once again, this track may confound expectations as there's some prominent, wayward vocalising by Rob. We think it greatest.
Hey, let me know what you think OK? Good or bad. That's what comment boxes are for.
