Frank Hamilton decided to make a record on the EDF Energy London Eye, in the time it takes to complete a single rotation. (Yeah, I was a bit dubious at first too).
To everyone’s delight, it worked, and worked bloody well. There were a whole host of people involved, and whilst I only really jumped in at the last minute, it was pretty clear that Frank and Andy are:
a) Really talented; and
b) Bloody hard working.
It was really only once we got off the capsule that I think the enormity of what they’d achieved sunk in. The first ever recording of an album on the London Eye, in one take, with only a few weeks’ worth of preparation and on a shoe-string budget. But it worked, and it sounded really bloody good at the time. I’m yet to hear what actually is going to get released, but I’m entirely sure that it will be stunning.
So, without any further rambling, here are some of the photos I took:
