#34. Demo Time.

So its the second day of our recording time with the awesome GG, we’re right by a lovely River and a Somerfield, what more could you want?

Drums are all tracked so im spending most of my time being bored and occasionally asking for bass booms.

The songs are sounding incredible, cant wait to hear the finished thing.

This is more of a bullet point post, I have nothing else to report, which is a good insight to recording. For me anyway, its a day of constant playing as hard as possible, like a show, but times ten. Then when im done, I have to refrain from annoying Hattie too much for something to do.

Heres some pictures:


I modified Hatties tuner.

Listening to lots of Les Savy Fav, Wintersleep, Manchester Orchestra, Reuben, Four Year Strong, Thrice and Rival Schools.

Reading lots of Rock Sound, Front, Music catalogues that are laying around and whatevers on the walls.

Eating lots of Apples, Go ahead yogurt bars, Chicken, Nuts and Monster Munch.

#33. Mean Everything to Nothing.

Alright kids, how’s it going? Our DJ Set on wednesday was amazing, thanks to everyone that came down and pretended to enjoy Garys songs. He got bored pretty quick and I got to play loads of tunes, including:

Mike and the Mechanics- Over my Shoulder
Journey- Any Way You Want It
Elbow- Grounds For Divorce
Thrice- Image of the Invisible

And loaddds more. I did it whilst being rather drunk too, only managed to pause by mistake once, prrreetttttyyyy good.

Right, to the point of this post:

Get your Pav Tav show tickets here:

We arent on the bill according to that, but thats because The Xcerts like to keep us locked in a cake and then we jump out and scare people like this:



It’s gonna be an amazing night and we’re playing a set of all new super songs for you to not clap at the end at, cos they all finish in odd places and people dont wanna be the first to clap, thats the worst isnt it? Perhaps just clap the whole way through, then you’re covered either way.

I said the word clap about 800 times then. Clap.

Then after that, we’re playing this:

Tickets here:

Hopefully Hattie wont fall over like she did when we played Audio ages ago, what a n00b.

That about covers it i reckon, listen to Mean Everything Nothing by Manchester Orchestra because im beginning to think its my favourite album, and thats a very exclusive spot.

Aidos, I meant to put Adios but Aidos sounds wicked.

Alexander McQueen.


Today felt like a sad day. Even before I heard about poor old Alexander McQueen, such a sad thing, it always is when someone takes their own life.

I wore some pink shoes that he designed once and they were beautiful. I couldn’t walk in them.

It’s ok for it to be a sad day, anyways. Not every day can be a happy day. Just so long as we are mindful and accept it and make tomorrow a less sad day. Anyhoo, with the help and contributions of lots of my Twitter followers we made a playlist that reflects the tone of the day. And I got to hear some new songs. And accept a little more Snow Patrol into my life.

If you are not already doing so, follow me – @hattiewilliams and of course @telegraphswords !

So here is the playlist. Enjoy.
