MJ Hibbett & The Validators: The Creative Sessions Volume 1

Compilations: The Creative Sessions Volume 1

This is a fundraising CD put out by Phoenix FM to raise money to help it keep operating. All the tracks were recorded over three MAMMOTH sessions in January 2006, when they booked whole weekends in Creative Studio in Essex and had bands coming in to record for an hour each. It seemed like a MAD SCHEME to me at the time, but it seemed to go bizarrely well. I recorded four songs, I think, during my session, and pretty much guessed they'd choose the song they did because the two guys from the station appear on it singing backing vocals! Aha! This is quite different to the version on This Is Not A Library. For one thing it's got more than one chord! It's similar to how the song was originally written, before I played it to the band and we went all DRONEY on it, and I think it turned out quite well.
