gavD - Richmond Road sessions

By Gavin Davies

Songs recorded in the year or so after leaving university.

Leaving uni broke my heart. I don’t know if I really got over it until my kids were born. It was so strange to not be in that environment any more, I didn’t handle the change well at all.

This era saw me write a lot of angry, confused songs. Metal was creeping back into my musicality.

One of these songs, “Overdrive”, became “Overload”, a Vibration White Finger track. One of these songs I would use later in collaborations - like Butterfly.

There are clear influences here from Primal Scream, RHCP, Primus and nu metal.

The last 7 tracks are bass solos, I think I was envisaging some kind of suite of styles, but really it’s just mostly aimless noodling!
