(Picket Fence)

“So, here’s my 2nd, and the Athletes 1st Picket Fence. It was pretty easy, really, we just set up our gear and played. We did two evenings, then I took the tapes home and mixed & edited them. I’m no good at that, so excuse the lack of bass drum. I love this CD though, i’m really proud of it. We all swapped instruments and such – it’s a rare occasion I play the violin (first time was for Johnny Pictish on a BBC session), and Doogie has sworn never to lift the concertina again, though I really like what he played. Faisal’s guitar playing really amazed me, as did Reuben’s considered double-bass work. A rare recording – Reuben playing the least notes of all of us! Ah well…” JY
