The History of Ghostnotes
I made a couple of songs with Ian Clement (singer/guitarist of Wallace Vanborn) 2 weeks ago. This is one of them.
Keep an eye on Ian, he’ll be releasing a solo record:
“Apart from exorcising his demons as frontman of Wallace Vanborn, Ian Clement has recently outed himself as a willful singer songwriter on his own. Bringing a deep, intimate voice to the set, with both dark and bright songs, Clement conjures an original world, packed with a lot of imagination. The release of his debut record is scheduled for early 2013.”
The Ballad Of Benny Balance
Ian Clement on vocals, guitar(s), organ, percussion.
Torre Florim on vocals, drums, bass, guitar, percussion.
Produced and mixed by Torre Florim
This was made on a summer night, somewhere in 2010. One of those songs that just ‘happened’.
While I was trying out some new gear in the studio, Jaap, Lea and Jop dropped in. I had a beat, Jaap grabbed the bass, the devil posessed Lea and next thing I know we had a song.
Recorded in our old dusty farm.
Vocals & Lyrics: Lea
Second Vocals: Jop van Summeren (De Staat)
Bass, Guitar: Jaap van den Berg (Black Bottle Riot)
Drums, Guitar: Torre Florim (De Staat)
Produced & Mixed by Torre Florim
Written and recorded at 3:47 AM, on July 31, 2010.
This is the place where most of De Staat’s ‘Machinery’ was written (and partly recorded).
We used to live with most of the boys of De Staat in this farmhouse. It was located in the northern part of Nijmegen (Lent). The building is demolished now, unfortunately.
Timo van Veen (Stuurbaard Bakkebaard) and I made this track for linedancing.
We also played it live in Luxor-Live in a special show. That was fun.
I will upload the live version too, soon.
