Vocal Tracking In Bloom

This is such an amazingly good video. Not only hearing from Vig as he recalls the sessions – but just having that knowledge of what went into the vocal tracking. Grohl’s harmonies are amazing – and double tracking both sets of vocals really just sets it off.

Second chance

In what is still one of the best live shows I’ve been to – we lucked into catching Liam Finn playing live at Al’s Bar in Christchurch in 2007. This live version of Second Chance is from a year later but it’s a pretty good indicator of the energy we witnessed that night.

Looping pedals are commonplace these days – but back then it was something a lot more unique – and seeing him construct songs was like some kind of magic.
