Smal/Birchall duo, Brain Police, IHMR

The David Birchall Rogier Smal duo tape has been released and is sounding excellent. Brain Police have released an awesome record we did over two days last year

Lastly, there's not much recording work going while I've been working my own music and performances. You can listen to some of that here and also on the I Hate My Radio podcast which I did a live session for.

There'll be some more recordings up soon of my own work (News from Korea) and also some details of shows coming up..

 Some excellent fun had recently with Manchester guitarist David Birchall and Dutch drummer Rogier Smal at The Milkhouse in Manchester. Cassette release due in January.

And a live session with James Harrar and Marshall Allen's Cinema Soloriens (Plus David Birchall, Paddy Steer, and others) at St Margaret's Church in Whalley Range. A fantastic evening listening to incredible music. Thanks to everyone involved!

Plus a record for Replacement Heads due for December. Link to the full album will be here when it's up.

New Tracks Coming

So, some new tracks will be up soon from Travis Hamilton Yates, a great guy from this here Manchester. We did some vocal tracks over at BigTone which turned out great, and he'll be back soon to do some more. I'll have them up here as soon as they're done.

A full day at BigTone is still £90 for an 8 hour day, though that may go up soon, and it's an excellent place to record an album or ep, or just to get some high quality vocal or drum tracks down for your project.

Any Manchester based musicians who enjoy improvising should get themselves down to thenoiseupstairs, it's a blast.

Finally, give these guys a look see for some good, noisy, aggro...ihatemyrecords

BigTone Studios, Salford.

Lab-Work Recordings is currently working out of BigTone Studios in Salford. Just 5 Minutes off the M60. It's a cracking studio, with a nice live room, dead room, and an excellent control room packed with some of the finest equipment going. A full day (8 hours) in the studio with Lab-Work Recordings is just £90, which is a ridiculous deal..
