To record vocals for Big Mono I knew I had to warm up my voice and get in the right head space to perform the song. This was a process in itself. On the way into the studio, I did some light warm-ups to wake my voice up and I softly sang along to some songs as I walked along the river.

We became very committed to our other projects and the final mix downs for Permanent Revolution went on the back burner for a couple of weeks. The intention of this blog is to look back at everything we learnt throughout the c
The idea of copyright seems like a pretty simple idea.
If it was your idea then you own it.
But where does this start and where does it end? I imagine even in the earliest days of our existence we'd have claimed ownership over a stick we found. That the simple act of sharpening the stick would be something that would make it “your” stick and that someone else sharpening their stick like ''yours'' would be ripping you off.
