The Genie - Two

Recorded: The Lach Inn, February 2012

Released: March 19, 2013

Engineer: Lachlan Wooden

Gear: Fender Precision bass -> Hiwatt Custom 100 -> Ampeg 1×15"

We had a blast doing this one. It doesn’t sound much like our first album, but it sounds like what happens if we set up our gear in a room and start jamming. There was no DI involved, just a mic on the bass cab. That was out of necessity – with only eight channels you can’t afford to use up two on the bass – but it was also a refreshing way to record, people hardly ever just use a mic. You can hear plenty of amp-shitting-itself distortion too, which is the best kind of distortion.
