Destination: mighty Otumoetai.
Our lovely friend Dave (of Flogging a Dead One Horse Town fame) has this amazing converted, sound-proofed garage (aka his “jam room”), so the long Labour Day weekend seemed like a mighty fine opportunity to try our hand at recording as much of an album as possible – as well as catch up with a good mate.
Little did we know that we would be making our new best friend.
It seems since the last time we saw him, Dave has acquired a new pet. And not just any pet. A delightful kitten by the name of Gibby Haines [sic].
The minute we arrived, Gibby seemed pretty keen to get to know us…
It soon became clear that she was *particularly* sweet on James…
Being a curious wee thing (and keen to hang out), she was most intrigued by the overdubbing process…
… which, of course, is *extremely* tiring work.
LOVING YOUR WORK GIBBY. We’ll be dedicating at least one album track to your fabulous self.
