In The Attic – More Session Blogging
A couple of weeks ago we talked about how some bloggers like Daytrotter are starting posting MP3s of music sessions with bands. Today, we read in the Independent that The Who’s Pete Townshend has teamed up with Rachel Fuller to create his own take on the sessions-blog. Called In The Attic, they’ve been recording informal video sessions with “everyone” from The Fratellis to The Zutons via The Kooks and Razorlight:
“It’s so informal. We just have a couple of chairs, keyboard, acoustic guitar, stereo mike. We really don’t rehearse or anything. We just come up with sheets of paper with lyrics on them and call charts and do a quick run through and that’s it, about as live as you can get. I’m the girl from Essex, somewhere between Jools Holland and Wayne’s World,” explains the classically-trained 30-something singer-songwriter in the big upstairs room overlooking the Thames at Pete’s Oceanic Studios in Richmond.
