about

Recorded sometime in 1995.

Another example of the freedom I had during my un(or under)-employed days after Uni. This was another song that I wrote and recorded in an afternoon (it's not very long or complex, admittedly!) and presented to Giles as a finished thing.

I'd love to say that it was a calculated artistic decision that we didn't monkey around with tracks once they were recorded. But maybe we were just lazy.

JD was mostly concerned with quirky little acoustic songs at this point but we still occasionally had an urge to hit the 'loud' pedal.

Giles was working at [LARGE HIGH STREET RETAILER SPECIALISING IN NEWSPAPERS, BOOKS AND RECORD TOKENS, BOUGHT BY ELDERLY RELATIVES AT CHRISTMAS/BIRTHDAYS] at the time and they gave all their staff a ghastly cube with their vision of what great customer service could be. The opening lines are directly taken from this.

Actually, I say it was ghastly because that's how it seemed to us at the time. Now we're older, we'd probably all agree on the need for excellent customer service.

about

Johnny Domino Derby, UK

Giles and Steve formed JOHNNY DOMINO in the summer of 1993.
Over the next 3-4 years they recorded over 100 songs (known as THE SHITHOUSE MASTERS) on a series of knackered 4-track recorders, drafting in other players on an ad-hoc basis.
Long-term SHITHOUSE alumni Jim became a full-time Domino in 1996, followed by Marc.
Johnny Domino played their final gig on December 23, 2006 at The Vaults, Derby.
