News
we have started recording an album.
we are slowly, slowly, going to be recording a full length over in acton, west london.
the process is expected to take at least a few months, maybe the rest of our lives.
but it really shouldn't take THAT long.
we are doing it bit by bit by bit, like a dripping tap, or perhaps more accurately like an elderly gent's leaky bladder. i see an episode of embarrassing bodies where they put a little pump device in this old boy's ball sack... he just had to squeeze it, on/off, and the waters flow... anyhow. hopefully that won't happen to us, and we can flow freely. perhaps it is time to elaborate...
the thing that makes this album recording so unique to us (and maybe vulnerable to complete collapse) maybe is the fact that we are doing this entirely ourselves. more specifically; john is recording the whole thing, as part of his masters in sound engineering (or something similar), so over a long period of spasmodic, occasional recording sessions booked whenever we can, we are gonna attempt to not lose any crucial pieces of the puzzle, and stick it all together at the end.
john really knows his stuff now, and im over the moon at the fact that we're gonna have more control over how this sounds than ever before. we might totally fuck it up, and im fully expecting to get to the end and lose half a song's worth of kick drum...or perhaps jsut all the drums... but we will bundle it together with whatever we can and hopefully this will be honestly US, if nothing else. thats "us" as in claypigeon, not the united states.
so far john and azghar have done one drum and bass session that i believe went from 8 in the evening until 10 the next morning. we have listened to the drum tracks and they sound pretty damn good. but they're all too fast so we said do them again. this is going to be LONG. but it'll be worth it and this album will be totally fresh and new and different and documents the new band we have (somehow) become. some songs are still being written. but im very excited. i will update this every now and then for the 3 or 4 people who read our blogs to get mildly uninterested to. i hope you guys are well!

we have been playing some weird gigs recently. a pool hall, with pool going on, the thugliest pub in the world, and a national trust listed mansion/squat in one week. i do like being in this band.

""I love it when bands have personality. So often a band will just blend in with everything else, but with ClayPigeon that's just not the case... The prospect of seeing this band live excites me to no end. Please, for God's sake check this band out… No matter what you listen to" - A SHORT FANZINE ABOUT ROCKING.

"there's been a clear thought process gone into this that's made their own original style of fast-firing, multitextured ragga punk, and I can really appreciate it... The two vocalists work together particularly well, as they both have a different singing tone, giving the tracks real variety. And that is what ClayPigeon offer, variety - something a bit different, and lots of it too... A very enjoyable and original listen." PUNKSCENE.CO.UK
