Primal Scream

I got drafted in to add some overdubs and mix a few songs for Vanishing Point, including the hit single Kowalski at Ocean Colour Scene’s Mosely Shoals studio in Birmingham. This was the first song to feature newly recruited ex-Stone Roses bassist Mani, and upon his arrival we spent a day at the scooter shop before setting to work with him, recording the part both forwards and backwards (with the tape turned upside down). Mixing was quite a slow process, with no desk automation. Using tape splicing, we constructed the mix in 4, 8 and 16 bar sections, doing lots of live effects and even triggering samples live. And many late night balti restaurant visits were enjoyed.
