mums’ revenge (please note the placement of the apostrophe – it is the revenge of all
mums everywhere) – RELEASE DATE - Mother’s Day, 31st March 2019
"I started recording mums' revenge in summer 2016. Dave Morgan (The Rockingbirds, ATV, The Weather Prophets) had just joined the Subway Sect as our latest drummer and had a studio in his front room in St Albans. Over the next two and a half years we gradually did more and more tracks until we had more than enough for a record. I played all the instruments while Dave did the drums, percussion and recording. I was happy with my bass lines but not my bass playing which was all attack and no finesse.
Luckily Ruth Tidmarsh was on hand and is a superb bassist and fine singer. Dave had
already alerted me to her skills as a photographer but as a three piece Sect we were all
in the same zone musically, which is a must when you have a tight budget. So Ruth
played my bass lines but in a more musicianly way (ie. no horrid buzzy noises). It was
an altogether happier experience than most recording set-ups. No outside interference
meant we could do just as we wished and we had lots of voices other than mine in the
final mix - which we had hoped for from the outset. We were helped out by Helen
McCookerybook, Simon Rivers and Neil Palmer from the Bitter Springs/Oldfield Youth
Club, Davy Henderson, Jock Scot and Gareth Sager, and Subo from Asbo Derek."
