We have recorded and edited Dave’s Classical Guitar CD’s – featuring original compositions and arrangements. We recorded over 30 tracks in two 4-hour sessions at a hall in Old Headington. Due for release shortly!
Next time I’ll bring an air-rifle to take down any pigeons cooing outside…

Dave and I are so stoked to be producing the upcoming album from Matt Chanarin. He’s currently rehearsing with Colin (Telling the Bees) and Evan (ALAMAKOTA) before coming to the studio, so there’ll be magic hitting the tape machine as soon as I hit the red button. Magic I tell you.
So it finally happened – ‘Collision’ was performed in its entirety to a packed out Jazz Cafe of singing fans on 16th July. It was truly an awesome gig, with up to 10 people on stage for some of the more epic musical moments, and David showing us what he does best.
There have been a couple of reviews of the album since it’s release, so have a read if you’re interested:
Album review: David Simon – Collision
The gig was filmed and recording so we’re now working on Post Production for the DVD…
It was a pleasure to have Jamie Bell return to Boog Studios to start work on some new material. We got two tracks done over the weekend, one is missing vocals, which we’ll finish off next time. Watch this space – Jamie will be coming back next month to record some more songs (album? EP?). Meanwhile, check out his myspace
Carlo was kind enough to mention me in his interview with Adam A. Johnson. Read it here:
Lazare have just finished our first run of gigs in the UK, playing at Club 229, the Luminaire and Malmaison. We played with some really great bands, like Charly Coombes and the New Breed, The Kin, and dB Band (check them all out).
2F on vocals and guitar,
Dave Seck on bass and BVs
Oli Whitworth on keys and BVs
Miikey Dean-Smith on drums and BVs.
We’ll be touring again in about a month, come along!
Another icecream-driven gig at G&Ds icecream parlor (Cowley Road), with Spring Offensive and Stagecoach managing to rouse up the most brain-frozen audience (not easy). Look out for a collection of these live performances out on CD in the future!
The Tumbledryer Babies have just recorded their EP. A bizarre assortment of instruments with Kazoos, Vibraslap, multitracked bass guitars, toy accordians, and Jews Harp!
Check out the video of them recording, HERE
A great concert from the National Youth Guitar Ensemble, featuring an original composition from the director, Gerald Garcia. Keith Fairbairn was the guest soloist for this concert, playing Marimba and percussion. CDs will be available from the NYGE website: http://www.egta.co.uk/content/nyge
I recorded the concert onto 8 track, to leave some options open for mixing. A main pair of Oktava mics provided most of the sound, but these were supplemented with spot mics on Marimba, bass guitar and percussion, resulting in a really natural, intimate but enveloping sound.
A really fantastic concert that I was proud to be involved in!
The Elrics EP is nearly finished, recorded here at Boog Studios. Just some minor tweaks and mastering on this little rock’n’roll beauty.
I’d recommend seeing them live if you like what you hear!
