The most enormous difficulty with recording this podcast was that it was monumentally, wonderfully, amazingly sunny and hot outside. So there we were, stuck in our house, trying to play songs and conduct an interview while we were all secretly (and not so secretly) longing to just be out in the back garden. Mrs. Toad was making burgers, you know. Gaaaaah!
I remember when FOUND recorded a show with Marc Riley recently and I got plenty of emails saying that they really weren’t very talkative. Which is odd really, because I didn’t entirely get that kind of impression as we recorded this session or about them in general, but then I listen back to it again and the first few interviewy segments really do take a while to get going. I guess it took a while for Ziggy (who I’d never met before) and myself to figure out exactly how to talk to one another and whether or not we really got on. So that whole dynamic makes for a really good podcast, which gets more and more interesting, from my point of view anyway, as the thing progresses.
As usual, all the videos are embedded below and can be seen at the Song, by Toad Vimeo on YouTube pages, along with a portfolio of photos by Dylan from Blueback Hotrod, and Fee on Flickr here. The session tracks can all be downloaded below, and the main interview podcast itself is immediately below. Have fun Toadlings. I am going to sleep like a freshly-slaughtered corpse.
Now we’ve got the main session video below, followed by the videos we made for the individual songs (Vimeo are being fucking useless at the moment, but eventually that main video and Gifted won’t be on YouTube).
