Rulers of the Planet is a new band that Tomás is producing, with former members of the Shanks and Semi. Tracking and overdubs were done at bpm Studios with Finny. Tomás reckons it’s the nicest sounding space in Cork… Colm O’Sullivan has been playing the rough mixes on his Green On Red Show, Red FM 104- 106. You can hear the band here, recorded by Kieran Hurley at Cork Campus Radio 97.4FM. Recording is now back on schedule after Barry (singer) had his jaw rebuilt- he now resembles Dave Grohl, giving the band a competitive advantage in the marketplace! Slated for release at the end of March. Look out for the studio diary, coming soon…
The Stanley Super 800 EP, edited, mixed and mastered by Tomás:
1. On general release, distributed by RMG, so all good retailers should have it in stock now.
2. Look out for the video on No Disco.
3. It’s getting a lot of airplay, particularly the first track “Moonlight”.
4. Stan is topping the Wittness Rising Poll on Tom Dunne’s Pet Sounds radio show.
Listen to the Theremin track on the mp3 page.
We’ve run out of server space! When this is sorted, the complete works of The Charms will be uploaded as mp3. In the meantime, I’ve got final year exams to study for, so you’ll have to wait…
THE GIG: Final year music degree at UCC, and all that producing means that we can’t gig til June. In the meantime, music work is still going on.
Ken is working hard in his ergonomically redesigned studio Latest addition is a Johnson J-Station, also being used on Rulers of the Planet. Quite a cool thing it is.
Tomás is studying away, remodelling his studio in his spare time. There are quite a few cool new tracks on the boil. Tomás now has loads of raw footage, and is very jealous of Mike Oldfield who makes his own videos and interactive computer games on a megabuck Silicon Graphics Machine. madtheory has to make- do with a souped up beige G3 running Final Cut Pro, and a Video- 8 camera :/
