Ben had advertised for a singer and other musicians to form a band way back in late May 2009.
The day grew nearer so furious advertising for guitarists began. Ben and Emma sifted through the replies from mainly crazy people and found themselves a guitarist and a bassist who didn't seem mental in their emails. A meet was arranged at a pub in Leicester Square. To our amazement, we all got on really well so our first rehearsal was booked with a list of covers to learn.
Emma and Joe were the first to embark on song writing. Late one night, at Joe's gaff, from a riff and thin air, Human Void was born! Roughly recorded via the magic of a coffee table and a Mac book, my space got its first taste of the band. Later that same week, The Only Disease I Ever Want was created. Emma had a contraption that allows recording of music in better quality that Joe knew how to use so The Only Disease... Was recorded and Human Void got a bit of a make over.
After a few songs written and a couple of practise sessions, the foursome decided the sound needed more depth and the best way to achieve that would be to recruit another lead guitar. Again, many crazy people were filtered out of the running and we were presented with Morgan. The whole band felt complete and we dived into writing with Morgan. Another late night at Joe's gaff then an early morning at Emma's resulted in Standing Still and Nerve Damage. The two guitars in both songs really gives something special to the hooks and riffs. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed writing
Dan and Morgan left us to go finish uni, and We bagged ourselves a sexy looking JP! Go us! So it's all rock and roll from here on in ladies and gents. You ready for this trip?
The Frayed Laces..............OUT!
