We’re now most of the way through recording the Drums for The Dees’ new album. Continue reading “The Drums are nearly done – using a famous drumkit!”
After about 8 years off, The Dees – all of us – got back together for a quick recording session with Niall at NJA.me.uk – NJA Audio.
We spent 2 days and 2 nights at the Studio, (me using electric drums) to try out some new stuff, and see if any of us could still play. We could!
It was great fun, there was some good music, and we decided to work on a new album. Working title “Ten Years On”.
I’ve re-animated this website so we have somewhere to chronicle the mission. Cheers!!
