Yup, we have reached our first milestone - all album track drums have now been recorded!
Yesterday was a cheerful day compared to the somewhat gloomy Tuesday. The final drum recordings went extremely well (which was of course to be expected from a real pro such as Ludwig!), and once everything was in the can Niklas took Witt out for a well deserved dinner to celebrate.
It is not time for Ludwig to go home just yet though, Thursday will start the drum recordings for some extra tracks and surprises that Shining has in store for all...
On a slightly sadder note it seems that Shining's not-so-new-anymore bassist Christian has fallen victim to a throat virus that has been circling around in Sweden, which forced him to stay in bed whilst all others went to town. By the powers invested us by paracetamol and vitamin supplements, we wish that he would become a healthy young man very soon again...
Things were cheerful enough for all after the dinner though as the guys bought some new movies and all spent the evening watching such gloomy classics as "Get Him to the Greek" and "The Naked Gun".
I cannot emphasize enough how good "Get Him to the Greek" is - but you'll probably get the idea after I post up Wednesday's video blog today.
Until then, keep up the good work, you've been very busy watching and commenting the blog both in here and in Facebook!
All of the guys are eagerly looking forward to all contributions and questions you have made.
So, as always, keep watching this space, and "Does anyone remember the lyrics to "African Child"?!?"
