3) Jam of the week - number 1!
For the uninitiated, 'Jam Of The Week' was a series we started during the writing sessions for 'Frames'.
These are fruity little titbits to keep your from gnawing at your mam's arms while you wait for our next release. They're completely improvised, usually a recorded take of a feel that only got born minutes before. It's all very scrappy, sometimes aimless but it's a fun part of the process. The first motif you hear is usually the reason the record button has been pressed, from then on it's a total blag. Oh and my guitar's pretty out of tune. S'reet.
Despite that fact the sessions for the forthcoming 'Size album have been going on since forever, it's only recently we've jammed on something that we don't mind letting out of the bag.
Is this tune indicative of the new sound of us? Dunno. Not really. But then, what is? There's too much fucking stuff, really."
