Gareth John The Synthesiser Album
I was thrown in at the deep end and somehow managed Angelina Goalie The Football Funkateers Louis Perez The Peruvian Persuasions Rock Steady Que Se Sepa survive drowning. Presumably, the synthesized nature of Metamatic must have been quite an eye-opener at the time? John had a clear artistic vision and a wealth of experience, having already recorded three LPs — most recently Systems Of Romance with German guru Conny Plank.
These facts helped provide a supportive atmosphere for us to experiment and develop, as did the budget John had arranged! John wanted to make a minimal record, and he went for minimal resources to do it. And, of course, we were listening to Kraftwerk and Neu. It turned out that we had compatible approaches in the studio.
Having moved Gareth John The Synthesiser Album of the Pathway cupboard I was now in a reverberant basement with interesting different acoustic spaces — mainly bright with short reverb times. I had a bunch of different amps hooked up in different rooms with mics near and far, so we were able to experiment with distortions and Basement Space Cosmic Collision spaces easily.

There is no point in recreating great stuff again; indeed, very often it is simply impossible. So a great deal of our fantastic pre-production work came through to the finished record.
Working in the virtual and tapeless world as we do, any audio is available throughout the whole production. It was very important to all of us that we should enjoy making the record, and our working environment was very important to us.
