Big City Exile - The Surgeon Dances

Newcastle alternative band "Big City Exile" put it to me to record their first EP in 2006 and although they are now long defunct the music still deserves to be out there. You can check out more about Big City Exile on their myspace page.

From a recording perspective I remember this EP being pretty quick and in turn remaining quite fresh by not getting bogged down in the over dub process or agonising over mixes. I also got to use some "fun" gear in particular a Neumann M49 which we tracked vocals with and some 70 - 80's pres (Telefunken & Neve).
