One of the techniques we came up with for writing songs for this album was getting Jim to pick two random bands. We would then try to write a bit music that would approximate this bastard offspring.
This is a case in point - I think the prompts here were Devo and The Who.
A lot of the keyboards on the album but particularly here were played on an old Casio PT-30, which Marc sourced from EBay - the lesser PT-20 was the first keyboard I ever bought. You can here the weedy organ sound and the throaty chord buttons throughout "Vocodamol".
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....more
