Black Orchids | Live In The Studio | Musical Meanderings 11th January 2018

Wonderful to have live musical guests to launch powerfully into 2018. The Black Orchids, Kay Elizabeth, Magnus Box, Alain Duchesne and Brian Hedemann, joined me live in the studio in Brentwood to talk about the recording of the new album and shared a couple of songs from it- Still Remains and The Wonder.

You can hear it all again here:

We also reflected on the previous release ‘Blood Moon‘ and any changes in the song writing and production styles, especially with the help of producer John Moon.

As well as their music I also started the show with a song by Motörhead- Killed By Death, celebrating the life of ‘Fast’ Eddy Clarke who passed away today. Also, as the conversation unfolded, we talked about musical influences, such as the heavy music I’ve enjoyed with Kay, such as Windhand and there were a couple of contributions by Magnus who shared a song from his other project Sparkle Darkly as well as a song he enjoyed by another band he came across Ringo Deathstarr.


Also, here is the post rock youtube channel I mentioned, ‘WherePostRockDwells‘:
