about

O'Linski's note: I was fortunate to record four or five albums at organ monkeys studio in the early naughties...

Charmidori EP
The Complete Works of Mochikoliski

Mainly using reel tape and old analogue equipment for this one. I laid all the tracks bar-one down on my trusty acoustic Washburn, live with the drum track. Then instead of doing the overdubs myself, (cos I already know how they go) I directed other, mostly Norwich musicians that I variously knew at the time, to fulfil some unlikely outcomes of my songs and, as a by-product, some unlikely combinations of musicians also occurred. As a way of signing each track, I made sure that I was on each song in variously sized cameo roles. Anything between one single chord of the guide guitar, to singing a whole part of a song. Indeed a fun game would be to attempt to identify me on each track.
