To record the album, this seemed to be a more tricky proposition, than we initially thought. Perhaps if we were U2 or Muse, we could decamp to the south of France, hire a villa, build a recording studio and spend 4 years with Brian Eno making the masterpiece. Given our personal circumstances, this was highly unlikely.
What we needed was a bubble, a place away from everything where there were no distractions except our music kit (and maybe some beer).
Even a recording studio or rehearsal room would provide it’s own distractions of fellow musicians, rock hopefuls, and lesser known Indie heroes.
What we really needed was a ‘Guerilla’ recording environment -
On 20th December 2010 we found that space.
The most generic, distraction less environment we could find was room 15 of a Premier Inn deep in the Heart of England.
