“There are moments on a tour when things suddenly become crystal clear. You’ll be ghosting down a strip of tarmac somewhere in the early hours, half asleep, and it’ll hit you collectively, like some shared hallucination.
On a motorway between Leeds and Newcastle, we’re talking about production for the next album. It’s about two o’clock in the morning and we’ve just passed the Angel of the North, the huge iron siren and pagan-like gateway to the Tyneside area. Seeing something that mysterious can bring about a change in the way you think, if you know what I mean.
Nobody can see each other’s faces. We’re just voices in the dark, talking excitedly. Like we’ve been jolted into life suddenly:
“I’ve been recording a lot of guitars just going straight into the desk lately. There’s no amplifier spill. It sounds unbelievable.”
“We should try that for the new album.”
“Like all that weird Lindsey Buckingham solo stuff we were listening to before. It’s like that. Or Geoff Emerick, know what I mean? Really dry and present.”
“If we’re gonna go for it then we might as well just do it and not hold back. There are some good tunes already.”
“Yeah. We should aim for something a bit more song-based now, change it up a bit. Like some kind of surf thing. The Beach Boys in Llandudno. Phil Spector and The Ramones. Dion in the 70’s. A strange Mexican cartoon.”
“It’s almost like the opposite of the last album.”
“We’d be repeating ourselves otherwise, wouldn’t we?”
“It’s a risk, but definitely.”
“I think scrap the lot and start again.”
“The studio’s booked, though?”
“Let’s do it.” – Extract from ‘Into The Void’ by Nick Power
