Mary is killing the vocals today. All the main parts will be done by tonight.
She’s been getting down with her soulful self.
Its been quiet in the studio today. Nicky (who forgot to do the tags in the last tumblr - you’re fired) and Lexi are at work. BOO!
Kitty and Mary are living the dream.
Very exciting stuff to come.
Day 8 - HUF Album - 26/01/2014
Today involved many hours of guitar, cat cuddling, tea, noodles, big riffs, the occasional moment of desperation and the conclusion of guitars for our first album.
Celebration was in order in the form of a pub quiz and beverages.
Everything is sounding so BIG.
Day 7 - HUF Album - 25/01/14
Today Skrillex came and recorded some sick guitars.
Nicky Day thought there was 8 days in a week.
We cooked stuffed peppers with rice, and one had a secret chili hidden in it.
Nicky tricked us all into a false sense of security. Until Lexi bit through the nasty little surprise.
We’ve got a few more tracks to do guitar wise. Then we’ll move on to the vocals.
Day 6 - HUF Album - 24/01/14
well, Kat didn’t die from eating the 5 day old rice and reheating it.
More guitar tracking today.
Small hiccup which involved a little bit of soldering.
Recording some pretty fast and heavy songs today.
We had vegetable soup today. Buffy came to sit with Mary.
Day 5- HUF Album 23/01/14
Today Kitty and Nicky recorded guitar parts for the first song. And are working on the second one.
Mary also did the vocals too. Sounding soulful.
Everyone got super wonky last night, just what you need when you are listening to loud music all day.
Drummer is MIA.
Kitty ate the 5 day old chili…. no sign of food poisoning yet…
Day 4 - HUF Album - 21/01/14
Day two for Recording Bass guitar. Some of the more complicated rhythms and technical parts today.
Nicky Day tried to sabotage everything by de-tuning the bass.
Later we went to Wagamamas where we ate all the pies.
Mary refused to do a slut drop in such a public place.
Lexi wasn’t here today cos she had to go do something for work. BOO!
Day 3 - HUF Album - 20/01/14
Mary laid some sick bass lines down today.
We’re editing drums as we go along.
Nicky Day took forever to come to the studio from work. We were in desperate need of chocolate.
More Bass on Tuesday.
Today we had chow mein stir fry.
HUF in the Studio - 19/01/14
Day 2- Lexi’s been a right trouper today.
7 hours of pure, aggressive drums yesterday, and the same again today. As we speak she’s recording the 9th Track for the album.
Major blisters, giant leg bruises, aching tendons, she fights on through pain and fatigue. Whilst the rest of us slug about on the sofas drinking tea.
Last night we went out to Brixton to party in celebration of Lexi’s birthday. Nicky Day was SO drunk. The tap water tasted like cucumber.
We had yummy vegan chili for lunch.
Mary is currently asleep on the sofa.
GO BIG OR GO HOME!
Day 1- #HUFalbum 18th January 2014
Well, technically its day 2. The first day we did all the guide tracks to give Lexi a proper structure to record her drums.
Once that was done, it was time to set up the drums in preparation for the next day.
So far Lexi has worked her way through the drums for 5 tracks!
Drums are sounding really huge even in their raw form.
Stakeout Studios has two cats, Buffy and Gizmo.
They like to have cat-fights and be generally cute and distracting.
Gizmo has taken to sleeping on the mixing desk.
We had vegi stir fry for lunch.
Sorry that we have neglected our tumblr!
Good news! We’re about to head into the recording studio and record out first ever album,
We’re so excited.
Stay tuned for studio update.
