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.
