Crucial Music and Village Sounds Presents
I guess after a while you realise where things sit. You get some idea of how things work.
So, you think you almost see reality for what it is. But how can you make sense of your own reality when your own reality doesn’t make any sense?
I’m awakened now, you’re awakened now.
For us it’s about trying to come up with some music that would inspire us enough to once again pick up the rock tools and head into the studio.
This takes time.
In regard to Gyroscope we all share the same drive to this day that drove us since the beginning.
We get together on occasion for some boozy and slightly stoney evenings up at my home studio The Cabin. Sometimes through the thick haze and big beer walls we get a glimpse of an idea, and if we are lucky enough to persuade it a little, it grows.
Plant, then reap what you sow. This is the season. This is our crop.
The songs aren’t about anything in particular. Well, sort of. Some words mean some things to me. Some mean others.
I’ll leave the meanings for you to figure out.
Recorded in 2017 during a couple of rainy days in Perth with the infamous (meaning more than famous) Dave ‘Parko’ Parkin on board, we made a combined conscious effort to not fuck with a bunch of different guitar amps and try loads of weird sounds with these two songs. We didn’t go and try this and that in regard to overdubbing layers. We took a very live approach to it all from the get-go really. Necked some beers, plugged in and turned up… then turned up some more… then Parko would tell us to turn down… but we never did. You know?
Whether you like or dislike any part of it, you’re the television.
Told you we never broke up.
