So you may know that we went to the UK in March to play a few shows. Anyway, we managed to find a couple of days in our schedule to record a couple of tracks in a studio. Mainly just to try something different, as most of Tame Impala's recording is done at home on Kevin's little 8 track.
We recorded at a place called Toerag studios with recording engineer extraordinaire / absolute fiend for drinking tea / Liam Watson.
The studio itself is prettttttty insane. Filled to the wall with all these awesome 60's amps and other fun toys. I'm pretty sure Kevin had a permanent boner while we were there. Anyway, here are a few photos...
More control room....
The greatest bass amp known to man. Oh selmer....
Toerags resident cat, who kept me company during the many times I managed to lock myself out of the studio in the cold London air....
Other brief highlights of the trip..
Meeting Noel Fielding...
Edinburgh Castle, Scotland
Random London Photos... Rehearsing
Nick outside BBC radio...
Brick Lane Markets...
Sorry about the crap quality photos. We did have a photographer/band mascot, Sav, who took some awesome photos of the trip, however he's currently floating around Scotland or some such place unknown to us. So when he returns there will be some better photos.
