For some years Sam has been wanting to do Go Your Own Way (Fleetwood Mac) and finally we gave it a go and it sounds fantastic. Johnny's guitar solo is blistering, Ian' textured keyboards raise the song to another level, Delboy really pushes the drums to a crescendo at the end of the song in particular, Sam' acoustic guitar adds to the overall texture & her vocal delivery combined with Derek & Ian's backing vocal harmonies are great. Oh - and I get to play bass on it too. It's really good to be proven wrong on this occasion and I really look forward to playing this in a live venue near you soon :) - if you like Fleetwood Mac I think you'll love our take on it - Resistance Is Futile!
We also worked on Tainted Love. We have always done our own version more akin to Imelda May' version but with Ian on keys it seems to make sense to try a hybrid with Soft Cell. To my ears our initial attempts worked well. I Really enjoyed Ian' accents and the rest of the band sounded really good too. I think we'll develop this over the next few weeks to find a version we're all happy with.
Other songs out for our first try all together last night were Kids In America, Gimme Gimme Gimme, All Fired Up & The Power of Love. Early days but they are all sounding good - exciting times
