I have resolved to try and get back into blogging these tracks. It has been quite a hiatus but hopefully I will be able to pull my finger out and get a bit more regular.

Eh Yumm was constructed using the same bits and bobs we had used to create Stick it. We still had my brother’s sampler and were figuring out what you could do with it. The vocal “Eh Yumm” sound was taken off the TV and you can probably guess where the latin drums came from.

Um, okay, this requires a bit of explaining.

My brother and his mates started a band and they had all clubbed together to buy some gear. An Alesis QS6 if I remember correctly, microphone…

…and a shiny purple Yamaha A3000 sampler!

I was still unemployed at this point, living at my mum’s house with all our studio gear in my bedroom. By some quirk of fate, I can’t remember why exactly, all this lovely new gear had been left at our house. I don’t know why they weren’t using it themselves but here was an opportunity not to be missed.

I grabbed the first things that came to hand, a Lalo Schifrin compilation, a Jose Feliciano album I had just bought from a library sale, and the microphone and started stuffing things into the sampler.

Perhaps being unemployed and having to endure my own company for so long caused me to behave a bit daft and this was the expression of it. It’s mostly just figuring out what you can do with a sampler and having a bit of fun in the process.

The title and the “lyrics” are yet another Dirty Harry reference. It’s what you are supposed to do with a seven pointed suppository.

Gav was commuting to Perth from Carnoustie every day. On the A90 between Dundee and Perth there was a little sign that said “Carse Honey”. Quite fitting for such a sweet tune.

Recorded as a live jam, this is essential fenducci. Nice bit of melodic electro and one of my all time favourites.

We have the SH101 doing a Kraftwerk style white noise snare, strings, piano sounds and tuned percussion all wrapped up in a loose ad lib arrangement. Tasty.
