Five Weirs Words

 

 

 

Along the lines of ... when something begins to go wrong it inevitably goes all the way... I have to recall that when we were attempting to record the whole of the poetry, and the song by Mo Baxter, we managed to pick the only Sunday when the Electricity Board were digging up the pavement right outside the window of the recording studio. If Mo sounds like she has a slight vibrato, it was probably because of the vibrator they were using to relay the pavement. What recordings we do have were carried out remarkably well and under great duress by Jaqui Bellamy.
