The end is within sight, we have identified everything that needs doing to finish this stage of Mink15, and hopefully the album with drop sometime before the end of 2010. This is more or less likely. Ish.
Today was meat to be the final Mink15 session – we think it’s just about done – but due to snow, Ash can’t get here. Looks like we’ll have to do it over the phone, which could be tricky.
I didn’t realise it’d been 2 months since the last update… so what have we been doing?’24’ has been completely re-worked, gone is the double bass and the wurlitzer electric piano, the sound is more stripped down and punchy. It now also has the results of Andy’s location recording in Shrewsbury town centre with his Minidisc recorder. We are piecing together the album, working on play order (for people who still play albums in the order they are meant to be listened in) and fixing any glaring mistakes or bad bits. We did at one point promise a Christmas release – or thereabouts – and it’s looking slightly unlikely we’ll meet that deadline, but not by much. Fingers crossed, and all that.
