Dark Company: today’s studio action

Posted by Wudmaster on 25/10/15

Today’s studio action at Wud Records focused on Dark Company. Pete appeared an hour later than normal because he was unaware that the clocks went back last night (!) and we recorded the vocals for Shadow Play and Red Sun.

Before and after his visit we were working on various production aspects of Repossession from the Ghost of the Art album, which has been having an upgrade.

Dark Company tend to gather in Studio One most Sundays and we shall let you know more about what they have been up to following subsequent studio sessions.

Addled Eggs: live in session 1986 repaired

Posted by Wudmaster on 25/10/15

The Addled Eggs bootleg recording of themselves live in session in 1986 has been repaired and reuploaded to the Wud Records website and added to SoundCloud.

It seems strange to think that it has been 20 years now since dear old Dean died. His smile and his laugh, his funny ways and his talent will never be forgotten by those of us that knew him.

We hope you enjoy this blast from the past from The Addled Eggs. If you would like to listen at the Wud Records website, click here. If you would prefer to listen at the SoundCloud website, click here.

Clonk!: demo repaired

Posted by Wudmaster on 23/10/15

The Clonk! Demo has been repaired and added to SoundCloud. The three songs (The Paranoia Song, Don’t Even Try and The End of the Q) were written by Emma Williams with George Davies and plenty of input on production from Joe Ings and Amy McGill.

These songs were recorded in 2003 and sound nothing like Clonk!‘s many live acoustic open mic appearances of those days. In fact, of the three songs on the Demo, only Don’t Even Try was ever performed live in that particular format.

To listen to Clonk!’s Demo, you can find it at all of their pages here at the Wud Records website. Just click here.

Dark Company: Benign Inquisition upgrade

Posted by Wudmaster on 22/10/15

Benign Inquisition by Dark Company has had a full upgrade to alpha status and the results uploaded to SoundCloud. The Benign Inquisition album has its SoundCloud player working properly again here at the Wud Records website too.

Towards the end of last year we started doing these upgrades and they were finished some time ago now. More Dark Company material has been upgraded and we will be adding these players to SoundCloud. News updates will be posted when we have done this.

There are 13 tracks on the album which add up to over 52 minutes of music. Benign Inquisition still needs guitars, bass and production to be done before it can be mastered and released. The keys and vocals and some of the drumming we mostly like already.

Benign Inquisition was the last collection of songs Dark Company created in 2000 and 2001 before becoming dormant again. We see this as the end of DC Mk III, as it were.

If you would like to listen to the Benign Inquisition album by Dark Company as it stands at the moment, click here. Lyrics and information are available for Benign Inquisition at the Explicit Music website.
