Post RocknRoll Telephone-my studio recollections
on: April 2, 2014, 14:03

Hi all
Just thought I would try and remember being lucky enough to be invited to the studio whilst the boys were recording the new album and share my memories with you.
It was very very interesting to see and hear the individual and collective ideas working on each track and we were lucky enough to be invited to perform handclapping duties on one of the tracks-forgive me if I am wrong here but I think it was Back2B4. That track from memory had a great summer accoustic feel, along the lines of A Day At The Beach meets Love Leads To Madness !
We were also lucky enough to hear six or seven of the (at the time) nealry finished tracks and of the ones we heard, 4 or 5 featured heavy guitar riffs and a fast pace-along the lines of God Of The Mountain which I know is featured. The other couple we heard had very very catchy choruses -the type that you just cant stop singing to yourself !
Obviously that leaves 4 or 5 songs that were drum or drum/bass/guitar tracks only at the time so very difficult to say much about those.
All in all the boys were in fine form and the songs exceptionally good and shorter/punchier than the tracks that appeared on Big Dogs.
With the right promotion, this could be a very big seller and certainly a fine addition to the bands catalogue.

Hi, thanks for the information! The G.O.M. recording on RNRT the same as on the single version? And Big Dogz songs are all quite punchy and heavy :) Especially I loved the rough and muscular bass sound. Hope it will be similar in RNRT ;)

Thank you Russ. I actually hope it would be more like The Newz than Big Dogz when it gets to comparing - I kinda didn't enjoy the sound of BD also because too sharp sound of cymbals.
Anyway, sounds very promising, looking forward to the new piece from the boyz.

Agree, I like the newz better than Big dogs, maybe because I like the softer side of naz better than the heavy stuff.

I like both sides, but never found my way to Big Dogz album besides that sound thing I mentioned (talking about mastering, not the sound of the band) I guess it's also because I probably expected more in general - The Newz had so many styles on one album and everything just felt right - every piece was special and I remembered that. After listening to BD a couple of times, it all still sounds the same to me - kinda like listening to one very long song.
On the other hand - there are plenty people who loved BD.
Anyway - hoping for some surprise from the band. :-)

Nice to hear your recollections from the recording Russ.
I would've loved to be a part in the handclapping. Naz used that on some of the early 70's tracks very successfully.
I'm glad to hear that the rock songs appear to be shorter and more punchier. Cause I didn't like the long songs that didn't add any value or new content for being this long on Big Dogz. Example 'Time and Tide' which is a fairly good song initially. However It could've easily been boiled down from 7:21 to a terrific 3:50 min song. 'Butterfly' is another example. (My opinion)
I'm looking forward to hear 'RNRT' very much. I think It's already generated a certain hype!. As you said, greatly promoted this should be a big seller for the band! :)
