  • Black cabs latest

    Okay, everyone's been a bit busy lately, but it's time to get cracking on the next installment of this project.

    I'm gonna be sending off two CDs to Wooly for mastering: one with the correct order of tracks, for reference, and one with Aiff files that were sent to me. The second CD will be shy of a few tracks because not all the recordings were up to scratch or the actual copies sounded a bit too beat up.

    The following vultures need to get in touch with Wooly and send him your original copies:

    Fryer - I know John Stapleton has yours, but it needs to get into the right hands!

    Hadrian - It looks like your track will make it in it's entirerity after all, but it could use another recording session. Mind you, I've never heard the original, but it sounds a bit nasty to my ears, so prolly worth sending to Wooly...

    LDJB - Your track sounded a bit worn through. Without revealing again what it is, I know that at least two other vultures have picked it up since, so if yours is indeed a bit battered, maybe they have a mintier copy to send.

    Si Cheeba: Did you do some DSP on your track? The levels are nuts and I think you've lost some noise through that, very brittle. Worth another recording session for that one...

    Big Daddy Dan: Your recording sounded a bit muddy on the low-end. Could be your equipment, could be the track, dunno. If you think it might have been your kit, send it on over to Wooly!

    So just those five tracks that need further attention before mastering and then we'll have to talk about how much we each have to stump up I guess. Sermad, any numbers you can quote on that one? We can discuss this at length at next week's Brillo if need be.

    Here's the track order. Although mine is last, it is in no way biased. I believe this order manages to encompass all the different styles and sounds in a way that can be taken in comfortably in one sitting.

    1.  Brillo intro, John Stapleton's
    2.  Ed's
    3.  Belson's
    4.  Cheeba's
    5.  Matt's
    6.  Mark's
    7.  Bill's
    8.  Gerald's
    9.  Daddy Dan's
    10. Rich's
    11. Manzo's
    12. Vibra's
    13. Sermad's
    14. Fryer's
    15. Hadrian's
    16. Towny's
    17. LDJB's
    18. Nick's

    Running time: about 57.30 mins.

    Superb job, that man.

    Looks like you've got everything under control. If the running order sounds alright to your ears, then I've got no reason to doubt the order that you've come up with - so, no need to delay the project any further, from my point of view.

    I'll be ready with my share of the dough as and when.

    BTW who was on for doing the artwork?

      Good work Nick - let' get this done and dusted. I have a copy of Lee's track so I can check that it's up to snuff and send it down to Wooly if needed?
      You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

        Who's Lee?

        And I just rembered, Hadrian, that you need to send Wooly your tune anyway because I have it tape, which probably goes a long way to explain why it sounds a bit rough compared to the others

          As for the artwork, maybe we should discuss that further now - any nominations?

              thanks nick, nice work&#33;

              re: artwork - there were some good ideas floating around the board a couple of months back. i know an outstanding designer if we need one.

              once the design work&#39;s done, send the files to me and i&#39;ll get &#39;em checked for all the dull pre-press problems that normally make printing a headache, so we don&#39;t end up with 500 black inlays that were supposed to be white etc etc...

              if there&#39;s a collective desire to publicise this a little, we could sort out a small website once the design&#39;s done. depends on what people think. or we can be old school and just talk to people.

                  Yes - that&#39;s me. My copy is in pretty good shape so it&#39;s perhaps the way I bunged it onto cd? Rich, will you be seeing Wooly at some point (not sure if he&#39;s a Brillo chap) - might be easier for you to lend your copy - if not I&#39;m quite happy yo either copy again or send the OG to Wooly for copying.

                    Just in case it makes a difference I&#39;ve also got a super minty version of Lee&#39;s track too which I can bring to Brillo if required.

                        I really want a copy of this tune. I know what it is, but if anyone spies it for sale somewhere, anywhere, could they let me know? Still a cheapie and hopefully it&#39;ll stay that way after the CD comes out&#33;

                        On the design tip, I&#39;d like to suggest a kiddie book style inlay, where we leave a little blank space for listeners to enter the track name themselves, in crayon. That might pose a few problems regarding space, depending on whether we go for a single piece of printed paper, or have it fold out...

                          Cool - and we should really have a four page booklet, I think. The additional cost really is minimal, and you get so much space for info.

                          Not to mention we&#39;ll have the inlay card as well on the back of the CD. And a little something for the onbody CD.

                          Plenty of design opprotunities and room for information, then.

                            Nick - I&#39;ll keep &#39;em peeled for another copy.
