Thank you for your intriguing letter of last week, regarding
the new album project. I just need to clarify some of the
points you raised.
You're going to use a derilict cowshed in deepest Essex,
devoid of heating, sanitation and all other studio comforts,
during the coldest month of the year.
We shall be resident on site for at least a week, using the
Levellers bus as a dormatory, this has one, small, woodburning
stove for heat, a dodgy roof, still no sanitation and I have
to fight the dog for a bed.
I must bring my own sleeping bag.
You want us to supply all the recording equipment, desk,
monitoring, mics, and so forth, free of charge.
You also imply that you will have no money for food although
Terry says he will have some nut roast left over from Christmas
that will warm up nicely.
In return, you promise a good time, and to use the company
name as the album title ............ You cheeky bastard!!
In the entire history of this company I have never received
such an outrageous request!
Right on!.....I'll be there at 8:30.
All the best,
