Before we started working on this album, we had two-days of informal jamming. Due to the fact that I was wating to have a Demagnetiser (or Degausser) delivered for our 8-track tape deck, these were christened the Degausser Sessions.

Now the 8-track was only able to record onto 4-tracks simultaneously. So for this we plugged in every guitar / keyboard / sampler / drum machine / FX box, and recorded whatever came out, ready-mixed to two seperate stereo pairs. The noises we made led to some of the more interesting sounds on "The First 100 Years".

I can't remember if I brought the riff for 'Down' to the Degausser Sessions, or if we made it up as a group. But pretty much all the music on this track can be found on the jammed version.

We even made a video for this song (minus Marc), running around Elvaston Park in Derby - complete with many night-vision effects and extreme close-ups of Mrs Convery's ornamental figurines.

Alas, Giles had the only copy and I can't imagine he would have kept it.


from The First 100 Years, released February 1, 2002




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.
