Tape Notes

TN:21 Nick Mulvey & Dan Carey

Tuesday, 18 June

In this episode John journeys to Mr Dan's Studio in Streatham to talk with Nick Mulvey and producer Dan Carey about how they recorded and produced Nick's Mercury nominated debut album 'First Mind'. 

The boys dive deep into the working processes and shared memories of the time they spent together in the musical playground that is Dan's home studio. 

Listen to find out how a collection of dirty cups worked their way into the rhythm section of 'Venus', what advice a dream incarnation of David Bowie had for Nick before recording 'Dancing for the Answers', and whether daily micro-dosing of psychedelics was a studio success. 

Tracks Discussed: Fever to the Form, Venus, Dancing For The Answers
