Xavier -- "Do it to the Max"

My motto

Recording at RAK

We recorded our second album at legendary RAK Studios in St. John's Wood, London in January. They've asked us back to record some songs from their storied catalog. Below are a couple photos and a few videos that pertain to their history.

Mickie Most built this studio in 1977. The photo below features Mr. and Mrs. Most along with members of The Arrows, Mud, and our favorite, Hot Chocolate.

John Leyton - Johnny Remember Me

It might be that we've been recording in London for the past two and a half weeks, or maybe it's our current fascination with Joe Meeks. Either way, this song has been sounding particularly good of late.

Telstar - The Joe Meek Story

Because of this movie, lent to us by Robbie Baby, we're now obsessed with Joe Meek. Very good indeed.
