In the stu­dio with Utah Saints

Tim: “The stu­dio was Utah Cen­tral in Leeds. That’s where we recorded ev­ery­thing ex­cept the Ed­win Starr vo­cal, which we did at Stron­groom with Paul Ep­worth.

“Ev­ery­thing was still on MIDI, and we used the Atari for con­trol­ling ev­ery­thing. We had a big Stu­diomas­ter desk. It had 48 channels, which dou­bled up to 96. Rather than patch-bay­ing it we just wired ev­ery­thing in and left it.

“We had the 909 wired up. We had the Akai 3200 sam­pler in there. We just had ev­ery­thing up and run­ning all the time. We found that an eas­ier way of work­ing. We also had a DigiTech Vo­cal­ist, Korg 01/W, and a Korg Prophecy key­board.

“We’d do a track then go to the train sta­tion and put the DAT on the Red Star at 8pm and it’d ar­rive in Lon­don the next morn­ing. We’d get a call in the af­ter­noon with the la­bel say­ing, ‘Maybe just change a hi-hat?’. When you talk to peo­ple about it now, they have no idea [laughs].”
