Sedate me and release me back into the wild

Mark and PanosIt was a costume party. There was some very poisonous vodka. And professional photographers. The rest is just a blur, really. Wear a wig, said the invitation. As an alternative to drag, I actually believed I had the ingenuity and social poise of John Lennon. Unfortunately people thought I was Ozzie Osbourne. Which would mean Panos is Sharon, only not as hairy.

Beach House – My First Song in GarageBand

beach house

Summer’s done…

Picture it: the Norfolk coast 1967, sitting round a fire on the beach at dusk, warm sand beneath your feet. The ebb and flow of the tide, restless mixed feelings at the end of the season. It’s the happy/sad feeling The Beach Boys did so well, honed to perfection by The Avalanches…

Originally this track was made very quickly to a tight deadline for work. The brief was to create a laid-back soundtrack to relax students and induce a creative atmosphere, and this sparse little folk number emerged with a beach theme. It consisted of Apple Loops layered together in GarageBand, but I always felt something was missing and decided to add some depth, spicing up the sixties flavour. There’s even a few bars of Sgt. Pepper’s-style backwards tape for the sake of pure nostalgia. Goldfrapp did retro psychedelics so well on Seventh Tree, so I guess you could say I was under the influence!
