Graham Day – The Master Of None – Countdown UK LP

23.75

Graham’s debut solo album Master Of None is more the result of circumstance than by design. Demoing songs for the third Graham Day and The Gaolers album, Graham’s plans were scuppered by lockdown – with a drummer based in the U.S. there was no real chance of recording the album in the foreseeable future.

Hating to dwell on a song – if it’s not completed in 5 or 10 minutes, he tends to cast it aside – yet with no real prospect of making a band album anytime soon, Graham set himself the challenge of trying to turn his Logic Pro X demos into an album proper. Building each track up from scratch, he added bass guitar, Hammond and congas to the exciting vocal and electric guitar track, and the most challenging instrument of all, drums. These had to be played along to the demos which were built on quantised computer drum tracks.

The resultant 12-track album is a remarkable achievement. It defies the fact it’s been pieced together, sounding more like a live studio album recorded by a full band.
