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.

Moody music with a slightly darker edge was what we wanted and we ended up with “Writer’s blqck”. That must have grated because what we came up with next was this.

Much more the thing.

Fewer notes. Fewer notes meant a much lower possibility of straying into chirpy happy melodies, our weakness.

Fuzzy borders relates to a misremembered phrase my mum was using at the time, something she had seen on TV. I think the actual phrase was fuzzy boundaries.

I remember this one. Lots of potential, lots of good ideas, completely unfinished. Hence the name. The Q in the title is probably just a consequence of naming tracks using a jog wheel on the mini disc recorder.

It was definitely going somewhere. The bass line is a peach and the hi hat patterns are lovely. I think that was the problem, it was just too lovely, too happy.

Neither of us are particularly angry. When you are creating music it tends to be a reflection of your state of mind and generally we were a couple of cheerful souls. This can be a bit frustrating when you want to create moody music with a slightly darker edge.

So, we just stopped development, recorded what we had done and broke it down into constituent parts at the end with a bit of improvisation. Again we thought we might reuse some of it when we got the sampler and again we never did.
