The Cat Empire - So Many Nights

Recorded: Sing Sing North, early 2007
Released: September 2007.

Gear: Fender Highway One Precision with La Bella flatwounds. I also had a ’75 Precision that I was really excited about, but every time I tried to use it John Porter said, “Plug that blue one back in!” Also played the Steinberger on The Darkness. Not much upright on this album, but I used my David Gage Czech Ease travelling bass, mainly because it was a lot nicer to play than my old 3/4 Czech. I was also pleasantly surprised at the Czech Ease’s sound when miked up. From memory we used the Fishman BP-100 direct, and also had some sort of dynamic mic wrapped in foam and shoved under the bridge. That’s the sound on Fishies.
