rosary ep

  1. The Streets Where We Died 2. Miracles 3. Overused 4. Tend 5. Remembrance Day

Someone at South Downs college said he thought this was over produced - & done in a studio! Not bad considering I recorded this with my second hand guitar (with 5 strings, no top E), harmonica & a drum machine I borrowed from Johnny Love (bass played via bottom E guitar string!)

I didn't know how to use the digital 8-Track (Curl bought it), or drum machine at first so I learnt recording technique from scratch, & completed this recording in about a month. God bless the written manual!

This demo, I feel, has a lot of edge.

Released / recorded 2002 (via digital 8-track & drum machine).

Written, performed & produced by Mark Daynes (in my old home - Flat 4, Queens Parade, Grimsby).

- muchos thanks to John Love for your great help mastering it, adding a cello to track 5, & vocal reverb effects on track 1.
