I’ll be launching a Kickstarter for EX II on vinyl this Saturday, which is record store day so we can have our own RSD celebration without getting all commercial.
I’m so pleased with this album because it’s been years in the making and although it was quite quick to record because it’s mostly all live it was fastidiuosly put together and laboured over like no other record I’ve ever made before. It sounds monstrous. I’ve paid such attention to detail to the instruments used that everything on it is from the 70’s and the album has a very authentic feel, exactly how I wanted it. It took me years to save up and put the sound pallet together for this record. It was all recorded analogue and mixed on an old soundcraft desk.
I’ve also spent ages sitting on it, going back and listening after long breaks to make sure it still sounds good. I really feel like this is the start of something new for me, this album goes much deeper into a kraut feel than the first EX album. It’s definitely out there and I’m not going to post any tracks up in advance on soundcloud because I want the record to be listened to properly on decent equipment, in two halves, full blast. It rocks.
It’s only coming out on vinyl and limited to 300. No CD or download, sorry, that’s just the way I want it to be.
I’m also going to offer a reward (at no extra cost) whereby, if you pledge, you can choose to have your name on the album as co-producer. The front cover photograph (above) is looking pretty mean too I think! (yeah that is me).
Hopefully, together, we can make this a reality. Roll on RSD / Saturday.
