I write music, take pictures, and mess about with computers. Keeping my head above water, always out of my depth.

Next module. I did a diy panel with this one tried out some water decal paper which didn't go too well. I remember it being easier on my airfix models.

I'm building a modular synthesiser. This is my first one, an envelope.

Just for posterity and reference. I have done it before but had since forgotten what I needed. This transformer should be able to run 3 or 4 of these I think. Happy to be corrected.

 

Supermod

Supermod

Managed to snag a new pair of Adidas Supermods over Christmas. This is only my third pair. My first pair was dark blue suede with white shell. Spotted them in a sports/trainer shop in the Overgate in about '97-98. At that time they were called Supermodified and I had first heard mention of a new style of Superstar with the stripes towards the toe in an article in the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal magazine (http://www.beastiemania.com/qa/grandroyalmag.php). They were discontinued not long after.
I think they made a short run again in the mid to late noughties as Supermods this time. I thought the black ones were to be my last pair.
These new ones are a bit garish for my taste but beggars can't be choosers.

Standard

You will notice as we go through these tunes that there are rarely any remixes, re-edits, or versions of tracks. I'm not exactly sure why but we generally tended to work through an idea until we thought it was done, recorded it, then moved on to the next one. We might have had a few projects on the go and some of these might have spawned new ones but we never really revisited anything once it was finished. There are of course exceptions and here we have one. It could be that we had a fear of overworking a track. Much of what we did we liked because of its rawness.
 

On yersel big man

This is the first of our collaborations with other artists. It was an off the cuff jam with our long time friend Dave Philp. Dave is a phenomenal guitarist and a true natural. He was a member of Cannon, Uncle John and Whitelock, and currently is a member of Adopted as Holograph. There was no plan or structure and it really was just a jam session. The basic track was a work in progress, which is probably really noticeable at the start of the tune. Some of the elements are really strong though.
