The Whiskey Sessions started when three old (by this point) musicians met to get reacquianted and drink som whiskey. The whole think quickly turned into a recurring even about booze, music, and on-the-spot creativity. We get together, pop the cork, and get cracking on writing a song. The goal is to compose, write lyrics, perform and record an entire song in a single evening, preferably before the neighbors start banging on the wall or the audio interface burns up.
We often mix and master when we've had a chance to sober up, but we are proud to challenge ourselves to achieve all of this in a short period of time. And it's a lot of fun too......

Conception Song.mp3 (mix: johno)
As Mad's singing cousin Marie was visiting we sort of had a plan for pretty vocals. Thinking a boy band song about love. Not everyone was into that stuff however, so after a couple of hours of mediocre results we switched to the old playbook: dirty lyrics. Quickly we had something.
The song is about the conception of a boy... Mad had been way too sober at a number of previous sessions so she (and everyone else) felt that it was time to remedy that. She also had a sore throat, but no matter. The next day we laid down gospel-style harmonies at Mad and johno's place. Never mind censorship; why does this always happen to us?+write a comment
