"The Bakery studio is small home studio that fell out of the 70s right into my house, think it could have been the aliens????? Lot of old equipment (tape echos & reverb springs). I record everything on a tascam 388 8 track tape machine with a desk welded on, a machine built for making dub. A little tape hiss is a fair trade for warm analog sound.
Singers and players from Jamaica Nigeria and England Dubin it in Manchester."

Hi folks!

We're giving our never used and newly serviced 388 its first run out this weekend at www.punchstudios.co.uk Ipswich, UK.

The band is one I'm in called 'Broken Shapes' www.soundcloud.com/brokenshapes and we're gonna document the recording process as well.

I will keep you posted on the recordings and video footage..... straight to tape, all live with no overdubs.....well, that is the plan!

We're all very excited!

Ha ha!

Best

I recorded these two songs for Normandie Wilson on a Tascam 388:

A few years ago I did a record for Lloyd and Michael entirely on a 388:

And I did basic tracks for Red Pony Clock's God Made Dirt on a 388 too:

Enjoy!

I recently did an EP and an album with one of my bands on my 388, the first track isn'y working so everything was 7 tracks.

This is from the EP

I love that Lloyd and Michael record!

I engineered a solo record by "Michael" a while back when she was artist in residence at my old firehouse art space. We really ought to get around to releasing that!

Cool Hendrixy swagger riff you've got there.
How are you getting those space chirp/slide? sounds around the 2 minute mark?

Thanks Shed!!!!

Those sounds are coming from a thing called a photo theremin.
Its just a little box with a bunch of knobs for pitch,rate,LFO and has a switch for tri and square wave.It has a little photo cell that you just wave your hand over to manipulate it.Think Jimmy Page.
Its a pretty cool little noise maker.
