Day 1 - No Sleep, Scratch Tracks and Set up

After everyone not being able to sleep due to jet lag and adrenaline, we head to early breakfast on the beach at Scotty's.

We head to Ken’s house and studio bright and early. We meet the studio animals Rags the Dog and Roks the Cat. Drums have already been setup and tuned by Arctic Monkeys' drum tech and sounds great. All pre-prepped and tuned for us so we literally jump straight into laying scratch tracks down for Jon one by one.

Once Jon hits his stride (and gets over splitting his head open early on on the garage door) by the end of the day we have 8 songs fully drum tracked ready for editing. After a productive full day I borrow Dennis's Bike and cycle to Abe's our go to Liquor store for a 24 box of Pabst Blue Ribbons.
