After successfully tracking biscuits with John Delf at the well-known ‘Edge’ studio in Cheshire, The Control’s ‘Crimes of Love, Dance and Music’ had a lovely smooth tone but was in need of a bit of a polish, added zing and a tad of de-ambientizing (American spelling of a word that doesn’t exist alert!) so we got cracking. Vocals were tracked again along with some percussion, and the one-minute-forty-odd assault on the senses turned into what vocalist JBH described as ‘more of a chainsaw than a pink sock.’ We obviously took that as a massive compliment, and are eagerly awaiting a listen of the finished ginger-nut which is currently being mastered by Tim Debney, who has a CV that’s longer than a conga, including the likes of Keith Allen’s daughter. The boys also bravely consumed one of our ASDA pot noodles which don’t resemble the real thing whatsoever, and revealed how they swipe expensive donuts through the self check-out at TESCO as cheap apples! Unlucky TESCO!
