Loads Of Gigs

March 13, 2009

Well hello there guys
It’s been a while since I last posted anything.
Thought I’d drop a blog about my gigs. (hmm…note to self, never use the phrase ‘Drop A Blog’ ever again)

They are too many in number to write out, so I’ll be lazy and half-heartedly point towards my myspace page.

hope to see you guys soon


Me and the Casio Kids

March 5, 2009

casiokids and me, originally uploaded by jamesyuill.

Hello everyone,

Had a wonderful evening in the studio yesterday with those Bergen boys Casio Kids.

We were laying down some vocals for each others tracks.

Casio Kids translated Left Handed Girl into Norwegian and I sang Groent Lys I Alle Ledd in English.

Admitedly they sing pretty high, so I had to bust a lower octive on thier one, but with the harmonies I hope I do it justice.

They certainly made Left Handed Girl sound awesome!

I believe the NME are having the tracks as a free download soon…so I’d better get mixing them…

a bientot
