Climax Golden Twins
Imperial Household Orchestra

Scratch (#23) 1996

CGT Notes:
Our first Full Length compact disc. Oh Boy! That's a whole mess of CGT to wade through. Our first effort with John freaking out with us the whole way through. I think Scott called it "an epic masterpiece" HA! Thanks to Keith Parry for putting it out and putting up with us.

SWC Notes:
This was recorded on the 80-8 with various mic's in various positions. The method was to record three tracks (each member getting a track) as an initial improv and then sift back through to add additional tracks and build up sounds. The whole thing was edited on the Pro Tools system with mixes from the 8 track, some cassette sources and several straight to DAT "live in the studio" tracks.
