about

Hypothetical Solutions recordings kicked of in spring 1998. I had started to get into "writing as you record". In this approach the music is already prepared and somtimes titles are made for tracks but the actual lyric or vocal content is not written. Tracks like Shine and Leaf Tale are examples of this and some of the lyrics in Voices weren't actually written. Throughout the Jeg recordings this approach was adopted as sometimes I felt forcing lyrics would mean the right mood was missing from a song. This album is a great example of melodic tunes. I should have left the re-recorded Soul Drive tracks off the album. By the time we started recording this album we were a three piece band. There were loads of overdubbings which meant sometimes live the tracks from this album were thin but Stuck in a Rut was always one of the bands best songs. From this group of tracks the main live ones were My Brain Is In The Air, Stuck In A Rut, Calling, A Feeling and Shine. The rest appeared as they were written but disappeared after recording. We had a good album here but it was difficult reproducing it live which presented a temporary problem and a need to focus more on how we could work in the studio.
