The EP I’m releasing for Record Store Day on Saturday is called ‘The Daytrotter Recordings’.
When I found out I had the opportunity to release something for Record Store Day I was excited. Just the chance to get back in the recording studio seemed very appealing. I wanted to do something different. The thing I love about Record Store Day is that the releases are completely unique. It’s one of the few moments when you can find and own something that won’t be available anywhere else. It becomes more personal. It becomes more special.
I decided I wanted to release an EP that could emulate some of the stuff I’ve been doing on the road with my band. I wanted it to sound live. So we recorded a set of some of my favourite songs, and we recorded them straight to tape. We only had a couple of hours, and a couple of reels of the stuff, but that made it all the more compelling.
Hope you enjoy, Tom
