Walt's Frozen Head
“I’ll stop singing now… I want to do the next bit underwater”… When Alfie Enzo and his army of co-conspirators arrived at the studio, we knew that things would become strangely and yet brilliantly challenging. During the vocal sessions on their forthcoming debut EP, Alfie tried every possible approach to capture the correct feeling for a backing vocal - a vocal which is placed so quietly in the mix that only those listening on headphones would even spot it. And yet Alfie recorded his vocal part in the style of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, a war time BBC Radio announcer, a child, a child in a horror movie, Igor, Vincent Price… and several more. These songs bounce, stomp, twist and turn. None of us really know what’s going on. But our ears and endorphins are responding favourably.
