Big yet Tiny

We are 2 weeks into recording and the songs are sounding great.

We're eating beef and drinking beer which i think is having an effect on how some of the songs are going to sound.

I did a panorama, innit. click on it to make it all big.

yesterday we experimented with tying tissues to guitar strings and playing loud solos through toy amplifiers. Not going to give away too many secrets of our sounds though.



(One of Pete's tricks to getting good sounding takes is to look really fucking cool when recording).



Bobby thanks very much for lending us the guitar and we're really sorry for not giving it back to you xxx




Peter and David take a little break where they share a cigarette and agree that I'm a dick.

Boys on the Beach

What do Pete and the Pirates do on days off from their punshing recording schedule? This exclusive footage reveals all....



Yes, we are in Newqualy soaking up the sun after being locked in some dark rooms for 12 hours a day. Not that I'm complaining, we've been looking forward to recording for about 2 years. We were actually here to do a show but our over zealous tour manager got us here about 4 hours early so we had plenty of time to get all sandy.
