We were happy to be involved in ‘Unconvention’ which took place in Macclesfield last Saturday. We arrived late from Barcelona, where we’d been playing a show in Spain, so we’d had little sleep but had to get straight to work.
8 bands/artist had been asked to perform and record a cover version of a song from Iggy Pop’s album ‘The Idiot’ to celebrate the life of Ian Curtis. I totally love the album and jumped at the chance. I had a really good idea for a cover that we could do of ‘Sister midnight’ but ‘the reverend sound system’ had 1st dibs on that little beauty. We played ‘mass production’ as the last song of the day to be recorded. The venue was a hive of creative activity with lectures about music biz stuff taking place as well as the bands recording their covers in front of an audience. This was pretty bonkers as we’d only had a couple of run throughs before. It sounded cool though and we got it in the 1st take, magic.
We finished the day off by playing a free show at midnight. Good times xo
