According to what Guy says in some of his answers, they already started. McCusker and McGoldrick had been there already, for example.

This setup picture is more or less what I thought would be happening this first week...or maybe the last week of January.

Setting up everything for the band, so when they are there, they could start recording. In that picture you can see a lot of keyboards, drum kits, mics, sound walls etc. Usually set up everything is time consuming so having all ready before the musicians comes is important, depending on their ideas of what they are gonna do, probably the booths are ready also with an array of amps and mics for every musician. I recall that for the last record, Glenn was in one booth, Danny was also in one, and I think the brass (Tom and Nigel) also had their own booths, I can't remember about Richard, but I think he also had one, so having a list of what they need, you can have ready their booths so when they are there, is ready for a go!

Guy published the first diary: https://guyfletcher.co.uk/2022-studio-diary-week-1/ (https://guyfletcher.co.uk/2022-studio-diary-week-1/)

As expected, not a terribly interesting article, but I'm not trying to hate on Guy, it's just, like, my opinion. Still, it's fascinating and refreshing to see them recording again after all that trouble we've all been through, that's truly a miracle. And for a glimpse of that, thanks to Guy as always, he's a legend.

They might be, but maybe later. Usually is the core band for all songs who goes and record the songs, and then the other musicians come to play their parts.

These days Mike McGoldrick and John McCusker are coming in and out to record their parts when they have free slots as they were touring with the Transatlantic Sessions and fron now to mid of March they are doing their own tour, so, the musicians we saw in Guy's diaries are just the ones recording the main parts of the songs only.

Actually they are a trio, with John Doyle. They are playing in that trio format for many years ago, recording and touring. And they are very good.

Hahahahahaa! Man, gotta love Guy. As if Mark never recorded "old songs". It took him 15 years to record Rüdiger and even more Secondary Waltz, and even more time to record One More Matinee and here goes Guy saying "we're looking forward only". This Guy guy is so full of... Something.

I mean why always this strange attitude? Say just it may or not be recorded on these sessions, not switch on your absurd "looking forward" argument again. Even Mark doesn't overuse it so much.

When Guy states new material, I think he is referring to new recordings, not newly written, as he says Mark writes all the time, so it makes sense he can record a song he has been working on for a long time, Rudiger the perfect example. The irony with Two Skinny Kids is that at one time, it was the "New material" That is one song I would love to be released, it doesn't have to be on the main new album, could be on a single B-Side release, Mark has done that several times.

Greg Leisz as guest musician. Awesome pedal steel / lap steel player. Love his work with Bill Frisell.

This is fantastic news. He is a sensational steel player. Saw him in 2013 with Clapton's band. His presence made some of the increasingly lifeless Clapton songs sound interesting and new again.

Looks like MK has a predilection for that artists.

Maybe both paintings are in the same room, one in each part, maybe he take the Lambrettas one out and have it on his house or in another part of the studio.

That would be something interesting to ask Guy, wouldn't it?

That's not the same one on the Crimson cover, but very similar, maybe Bratby painted a series of them.

Danny on FB in the MK group:

Hello Dear Friends,

I thought that I would stop by and say hi.
I know that you probably feel as passionately as I do, about MK’s music.
I think maybe that photo was taken on the last day of recording, though I’m not absolutely sure.

It was one of the most satisfying and enjoyable months of work that I can ever remember. As you can see the mood was light although the work itself was quite serious. Meticulous and intensive though never intense, those guys are pro’s and can take it as it comes. They never panic and the sessions just glide along.
Before you knew it the day was over as time just went by so quickly.
Whole bands recording together live like we did, has become something of a rarity. And therein hides the X factor which to me is the fact that you are capturing not just a piece of music but an even and the spirit of something very palpable, which took place in a room one day and is preserved as a piece of art.
When I listen to old records I always imagine the musicians being there “together”.!
To me, that’s what it’s all about.
We got a lot of work done but it was over all too soon. We all gave each other a hug, kind words were spoken and we each went our separate ways.
An unforgettable month of art, music, humour and a camaraderie. Like no other!

Be safe and well all of you

Love

Danny x

wonder if the National Tricone is Mark's one or belongs to another musician ?  :think

Richard has one, he played it live with MK in the past, usually playing it on his lap with a bootleneck.

Yes I know. and someone noticed that the one on the pic seems to have a square neck, so indeed it's most likely Richard's one

I have to say, who plays what and who owns what when it comes to making MK's records absolutely fascinates me. Several times before, Guy has referred to Richard playing something that he owns. So does MK have a list of all of Richard's instruments? Are the songs established enough before the band get "sent for" to the point where MK can ask Richard to bring this or that instrument with him? Does MK own all those percussion instruments?
And what about the lap steels in the rack? If they weren't MK's, would they be housed in the rack of guitars? and where is everything kept? I'm guessing MK has a fair amount of guitars (probably acoustics) with him at his home but are all the rest of the guitars kept there?

And when they go on tour, how do they decide which Mc plays which instrument? Who made the decision for Mike to play tenor guitar in StP and John to play whistle?

My goodness, I badly need that Henrik H documentary.

Questions, questions... Good questions. It is also very fascinating for me.

Yes, it's always fascinating to see all the great songs from Mark's junkyard  ;D come to life.

Mark has a warehouse where he keeps his stuff, Chris Evans said he was jealous of it when he interviewed him around Tracker time.

I assume he keeps fancy cars in there (hence the jealousy from Chris), but guitars too I guess.

If they featured some lap steel that would make me quite happy. As for that DX1 that they again hauled up from the basement just because they can - I couldn't care less. But presumably it makes somebody happy and that's always a good thing then. I guess.

GF about Greg Leisz:

Mark had an eye on Greg for a long while and has always wanted to include him in the band recording line-up. It was a great addition and it seemed like Greg had always been here. He played a mixture of instruments, Steel, Lap, acoustics etc.

A pity is only for a studio recording, it would had been nice to finally have a proper steel player in the touring band.

Steel, Lap, Acoustics! Wow, sounds great! Hopefully no brass section this time.
Can't wait to hear the new album. I hope the release won't take too long.
Thanks, Robson!

I wonder why Guy didn't add the week 3 of the recording diary.

I wonder why Guy didn't add the week 3 of the recording diary.

He used to add the third and last page when the record is done and sent to mastering in Portland, or they have it back ready, and he said in his forum that other projects are eaten their time and they didn't finished working on the new Mk album yet.
